Simply locate where the cable signal is converted into video (RGB maybe?) and
sound. Then disconnect the cable tuner&demodulator and attache the scart
video and sound signals to the signals in the decoder. Don't forget to
terminate the video signals by a 75 Ohm resistor to ground.

No - it varies! Last change I was told to use the Family Channel for a turn
on signal. It is true, however, that the turn OFF codes are sent on ALL
channels SKY have under their control (even Sky News).

blurred at the moment ;-)
