Getting my sky+ in my bedroom...HELP!

I asked a few weeks ago for help to get my 'magic eye' working in my bedroom after it stopped working when I had sky+ installed. None of the suggestions worked sadly.

So I now think I will just have to buy another type of reciever, a wireless one? Do these not interfere with wifi? I have my old sky box, can that be set up so I can just get basic channels in my bedroom...better than nothing as I have very bad reception.

Any help would be great :)

If you find a solution let us know. We've bought diplexers and expanders and tweaked the loft box but unfortunately it's always snowing in the bedroom. Searched all over the internet but had no joy. Good luck!

I don't have my living room tv connected to an ariel, only get TV through my sky+ box. Before I had the new box fitted I had sky connected through to my room using a magic eye (£6 ish) and a long ariel cable run from the box...honestly it worked a treat, perfect picture from my bedroom and could change channels from my bed!! The magic eye SHOULD work with the sky+ ...I have no idea why it doesn't!!

Seems to work for everyone else so deffo give that a try!!

Think that they have video senders (5.8ghz) out now that work on a higher frequency that dont interfere with wifi or get interference from microwaves.

Don't buy a wireless sender! I did that after getting sky + installed because mine didn't work either. It was a terrible picture and even interfered with my wireless broadband connection. You have to go into the settings in your sky plus box and allow the signal out of the back of it. I did some looking around on the internet and found out exactly what to do to get the signal through although I can't remember exactly what to do now, although if you are stuck maybe I could find out the information again.

Woo hoo!! It's working, thanks very much :)
#10
glad you got it working,was it the cable???
#11
It was the end off the cable...I'm so blonde but figured out from the link you gave me that the bit that plugs in to the sky plus box needed to be plugged in2 a different bit the 'RF' bit...so I just bought a £1.50 adapter that made the 'male' end 'female' so it fitted the hole lol!! Changed the settings thingee and the picture if perfect...so pleased...thank you v v much. I may spend all weekend in bed now lol :)
