    PMS AV Solutions have SDI Converter DIY Kit for US$130 or approximately £70 at todays exchange rates.

    They have a dedicated Sky+ v1 install page here

    Although the pins are t-i-n-y and unless you are really good at soldering very small parts you may condier Elliot's offer of SDI.

    Apologies for hi-jacking the thread but does anyone have any further news of an SDI interface / mod for a Sky+ V2 box?

    THanks

    Apparently the relevant pins are integrated on the motherboard and so it's impossible.
