After reading about the Alientech window controller on the web I decided it would be a nice toy to have!
It lets you open and close the car windows from the remote - not an essential feature I know, but I think it's cool.
It works using combinations of presses on the remote buttons as follows:
UNLOCK - UNLOCK - UNLOCK -> Unlocks all doors and ROLLDOWNS the windows.
UNLOCK - LOCK ->Locks all doors and ROLLUP all windows and sunroof.
UNLOCK - LOCK - UNLOCK -> Locks all doors and ROLLUP sunroof and VENTS windows.
Extremely useful links were:

guide - This was fantastic - detailed photos of how to remove the door panel
http://cars.packetradio.co.uk/octavia/alientech.htm - This was also incredibly useful as it contains the correct wiring colours for the Octavia
The packetradio link above is dead so here are the correct wiring details for the Octavia:
|Alientech||Car (solid colour/trace colour)|
Here's the copy of the original page on the Alientech site: clicky
Door in bits - argh!
Wires bared ready for fitting
Alientech fitted and in place
Bit of tape to tidy things
And the door went back together with no problems :-)
