I have one of these, easy to set up and does the job - mega saving compared to paying for mutiroom, although obv can only watch sae channel in both rooms!

This is my first post and not sure how to add heat or I would :oops:

Is this a case of plugging something into the back of the tv and sky box or do I have to have wires between the two? Will I have to buy anything else?

What is the difference to this one http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B000MGGSS0/ref=pd_luc_sbs_02_01 as this is cheaper.

Sorry lots of questions but do you already need to have sky on the tv upstairs. My mom has sky downstairs and wants it upstairs so could I just plug this in is basically what I want to know? I already have sky installed upstairs but my sky box is broken so could I then plug this in and have sky in my bedroom?

Thanks a million for all who help me

Take it that this is the one I linked to? Is it the same??

you need to buy coaxial cable to join the tvs together: so that is a consideration.

Can you use this at the same time as using Wi-fi in the house? The system I currently have completely cuts out the wi-fi.

Yeah 'cos this one isn't wireless :-D You have to run a coaxial cable to the other TV;
#16
Im guessing this may work with free sat also.. hence the same connections as sky?

Why is it "no good" for you? Is it because you only have one TV? Did it give you a brain tumour? Did it clash with your decor? Let us know how the Magic Eye that you purchased from Maplin for £19.99 has failed you.

I think its because you need to have a direct piece of co-ax running between this and the other box - if you have any splitters (ie for bedrooms upstairs), distributors and amplifiers they just wont work. I have to use remote control extenders like the One4All.

Sort of... you need first of all good conections at your Sky boxes RF2 and at the end you plug the eye into you have to turn on RF2 power on in the sky box
the thing will work if you have the right sort of Distrubution amp in your house and it's already being feed from RF2 on the Sky box.... bacially the Sky box has to send 9Volts to the eye and recieve the remote signal back... if anything you put inline stops that.. the Eye won't work.

the SLX eyes are OK but not great. you get problems if you have 4 or more in a system they seem to stop working for some reason

yeah i have things which look like small radar dishes which i set on transmitter sky and plug the other into the other receiver tv . works great ..... that was until i went wireless with my laptop and now there is too much interference.... have to turn wireless off to get it to work :x
#21

will this work on a cable box???? or is there another version about?

If your Wifi cuts out change it to a different channel.

My neighbour uses one of these...what a hassle he causes me and my wi-fi...already tried changing the wi-fi channels but to no avail. I hope it interferes with his TV Channel surfing as much as it interferes with my internet surfing. The 2.4 GHz spectrum is so so congested with home wireless products....
#24
i'm confused??? do you have to run a wire from sky box to tv you want to view sky on? These sound interesting but I live in 3 story hs and 2nd telly is n top floor and tv with sky on ground floor...........would it work?? help please :)
banned#25
Just want to get this clear. I have Sky in the living room but want it in the bedroom (flat so same floor) so instead of multi room I can use this little gadget? But I have to connect the 2 TV's via a cable?

Sorry to seem dim, but I am dim!

[SIZE="3"] Yes the eye needs Cabled from the Sky box to the TV you want to see and control Sky on
It only lets you control a Sky or Sky plus or Sky HD box with the Sky remote nothing else...
and works on no other type of boxes... only SKY
...
The eye does not carry or send Sky picture or sound ( the cable does that)[/SIZE]
#28
thanks bill - this is not for me then ;-(
#29
My mum's looking for a Infrared Red led or membrane to fix to the IR on the Sky box then connect to the tv on the other side of a wall, so that she can control the sky box, the tv is connected to the sky box by scart cable.

Will this IR extender work in this situation or does it have to be connected to coax cable ?
#30
This is a great bit of kit... got one set up in the bedroom running from my upstairs Sky+ box. Much better than the wireless one I had previously... as someone else said though, you need to buy your coaxial cable...
#31
can it be used without coaxial cable for the one tv just to extend the remote signal ?
#32
I know these are much more expensive but they are great alternative to having the wires round the house. These are the ones I have and they work a treat, great picture and set up took literally minutes:

http://www.argos.co.uk/static/Product/partNumber/5342608/Trail/searchtext>DIGI+SENDER.htm

Also, I have wi-fi in my house, and I have nver had any interference problems.

I know there are cheaper wireless makes/models on the market but I can't vouch for how well they work, it may be a case of you get what you pay for.

Well, there was no need for that comment at all. But never mind the answer is: my house is rather large with quite a few bedrooms. We have sky access in all rooms but could not change channel and had to watch whatever sky channel was on downstairs. As I could not use this magic eye I have sky+ installed in all the bedrooms upstairs now. Job done. Thanks for the sarcastic comment all the same. :roll:
#35
Just tried out the magic eye and it doesn't work...not with sky plus anyway!! The puture is all fuzzy and the remote doesn't change the channels!! :(
#36
Have you connected it to the RF2 socket and tuned it in correctly ?
