These things usually only work if you have no other devices in the line. If you have your coax cable looped through a DVD player, PVR or VCR (remember them) etc, then the device may not work for you. Signal boosters can block the Magic Eye from working and if you use wall plates for your TV distribution system they should be non-isolated, i.e. not blocking DC voltage.

I have three of them working fine with a couple of other devices looped through, you can get another gizmo to attach to the lounge end of the line that'll control other IR devices from the Sky bobble too.

If buying a signal booster, just look for ones that say they are satellite compatible as that means they work with these and check inside the wall plates to see if there is capacitor bridging the two terminals, if so just cut it off and all will be fine.

If your sending the signal to bedroom/kitchen size TVs the picture quality is excellent but I'd definitely recommend a booster if it's to more than one.

Do I not get any credit?

I assume that I whatever is viewed on the main TV, goes to the second TV via Coaxial. In that case, is it possible to watch free view on the second TV if I have attached an aerial connection to the sky box?

Hi. Thanks for the post. Just reminded me to order this for my daughter. I did however purchase from Amazon for only £4.09! (10.06am 24/08).

Yes it is, though you have to have a really good signal to still get all the channels. When I put my aerial feed through my Sky box I lose channels in other parts of the house, but this may be the extra wiring or distribution box I have.
#13
Will these work with a Virgin Media box?
#14
is there anything like this thats not powered by the sky output.
I have 2 cables going from a sky+ box to the 2 kids bedrooms but only 1 has a powered output.
#15
To the peeps asking if this will work with virgin media boxes, nope it won't. I use one of these for my VM box:

These magic eye devices are specific to Sky boxes, the signals are sent over Coax and only the Sky boxes know where to look.

dlcc, the problem with having two feeds is not just the power, in the options you can only choose one or the other. Something similar to smurf's suggestion would work better. Or you could use one sky output and loop the second TV from the back of the first? You'd lose some picture quality though.

And yes, this deal is cold, it can be bought elsewhere for less.
#17
picked one up for £3 from ebay in P+P
#18
Ebay is better value, I paid about £12 for the magic eye and brand new SkyHD remote.
#19
do these work on the SkyHD Boxes?
#20
Good find..despite what the ebay specky doorhinges say.....HEAT added. Cheers
#21
Taibosco: Yes, they work fine with the HD boxes, although you may have to go into the box settings and enable it, as mine was off by default.

arpster: I understand the Ebay comparison being frowned upon, but with this being cheaper, I don't see how this can be anything other than cold. :)

I have sky in my bedroom, and another tv in the other room. Other than this what else do I need to do to be able to watch the sky on the other tv?

Any help muchly appreciated! x

You don't actually 'need' this to watch sky on the other TV, it's only so you can use the remote to change the channel. If you're happy watching whatever is on at the time, or happy to do the legwork when the programme finishes, then you just need an aerial lead.
