Hi smarcin,

You'll only need to replace the OCS denise (8362) with an ECS one (8373).

To upgrade the kickstart rom, you'll also need the extended CDTV roms v2.30. The latter ones come in pairs. If you only change the kickstart rom and not the extended roms, you'll then lose the cd-drive, as the required driver is in those extended roms and the stock ones dont work with kicks > 1.3

www.vesalia.de sells both ECS denise and kick 2.05, but you'll need to search ebay for the extended roms.

Hi smarcin,

you may want to contact "Amiga Digital" (digital-x@home.nl). Maybe he can sell you ALL you desire for a good price just ask for the stuff you need...

Thanks everyone for reply !!!

How about Motorola 68010 ?
I know that this procesor is about 20-30 % faster than standart 68000.
The socket is the same , so just "plug and play"
What with the compability ?
What do you think about this procesor in CDTV ?
Greetings,
Marcin
ps.
My mainboard version is 2.2.1

68010 will lower compatibility quite a bit. Better off with a faster 680000 (compatibility will still be lower).

You need an 020+ for OS3.5+

FastRAM is more important than a CPU.
