Why is it that the 21TCDI30 - CD-i / TV combo is almost never offered on auction sites? Perhaps that the built-in CRT television died of most of these units. It's been 15 years since this unit was released anyway. When there is one on ebay like this week, it is indeed a rare occasion. What do we have here? It looks like how the B&O CD-i player was constructed, only now the CD-i Player is implemented in the CRT screen on top. Interestingly CD-i Fan found that the 21TCDI30 is a CD-i 210/40 inside a TV!! It is a 21" colour TV sets with built-in CD-i player (with Digital Video capability) in the same cabinet. It is the second combo released by Philips. A little time earlier Philips also released the stereo hi-fi set with CD-i player included, do you remember that one? Both combo sets were probably distributed only in Europe. I have no confirmations that they were available in USA.
