Scart is the same signallling as tulip/composit. Its just that the 
signal is pal (as it should be around the world ;-)

Well, as far as I know, 'No Grabber' works out of the box by design. It 
does what it says it does: not grabbing and that without any errors or 
other problems.

Yep, I got it working since a couple of year: 'xmltv' is the start 
point, you need that. The other one is  a search on 'tv_grab_nl' which 
will bring you most likely to 'tv_grab_nl_py at pwdebruin.net'. There is a 
rough manual to get it going.

sorry, do this by head, need to digg in for details...
