The CDTV-II, perhaps correctly called the CDTV-CR (CR = Cost Reduced) was intended as the successor to the original CDTV. Unfortunately like many of Commodore's projects it was never officially released to the public. Like the original, the CDTV-II also includes an infra-red remote controller but it also has a digital LCD display on the front and a built-in floppy drive which the original doesn't have. The CDTV-II does not have a keyboard port, or a mouse port like the original model* Around 60 units was produced.

* 11-03-2016: Correction. According to picture submitted by Stefan Egger the CDTV-II HAS a keyboard port.
