What did the CDTV evolve to become? Today I look at the story of the Commodore CDTV from set-top box to fully fledged desktop computer. We upgrade my CDTV using some modern upgrades to see if we can make it into a more useful device, and we explore some of the original CDTV titles. You've probably seen "The Town with No Name" over on AVGN, but it gets a lot worse!
