Help Please! Sky Magic Eye (Getting Sky+ in a different room?!)

Found 18th Nov 2008
Sorry I am useless with anything technical!!

I had a cable running from my sky digi box through to a bedroom. The cable was connected to a 'magic eye'. I could change channels etc.

When I recently has sky+ installed and connected the magic eye/cable again the picture became fuzzy and I am no longer able to change channel from the bedroom. I bought a new magic eye from a deal I saw on here (one that said it was for sky+, however it made no difference.)

Does anyone know what the reason for this might be? Is there is another similar 'thing' I can buy to enable me to get sky in a secord room and be able to change the channel!! I'd prefer for it not to be wireless as if it interferes with my wireless phones/broadband I'd be really stuck!!

Any help would be much appriciated!

I'm no expert, but the magic eye should work with any sky box, be it sky+ or sky hd.

Are you using the new sky+ remote in the bedroom, because the normal sky remote does not work fully with sky+ boxes.

Hi,
We Got Sky+ Installed But To Change The Magic Eye We Had To Buy An Other Sky+ Remote So We Could Get In The Menu To Set Up The Magic Eye.
Hope This Helps

Thanks for replying so quickly. Yes, i've been using the new sky+ remote...nothing. I need to go through to the living room and change it from the box. I didn't change any settings using the remote, when I first got the magic eye I just plugged it in and did nothing else and there wasn't anything in the basic instructions about doing anything else.

It is getting the picture but it's so fuzzy its annoying to watch. Hmmmmm

Sorry, I am REALLY simple when it comes to this!!
If you could tell me what settings you went into that would really help. The remote doesn't work at all when pointing it at the magic eye, however fine at the main sky box.

you need to switch on rf output number 2 on new box.

press services
number 4
IMPORTANT - Type in 0 1 then press select ( this should take you to installer setup)

you need to go into RF outlets - sorry can't remember menu number think its 4, not sure tho

use arrow keys to change RF outlet 2 power supply to ON
highlight save new settings and press select
press SKY button

Go and try magic eye and see if all working

Any problems let me know....

Cheers
Bry

This was a great help as i got my magic eye light to come on and work downstairs....the problem i have now is it wont work upstairs. I dont have a direct cable from my box to the other teles the cable goes from my box into the loft then it is split into 3 bedrooms. Is there a way around this to get it to work upstairs????

Hope you can help

Hey, we got sky+ installed, and then the remote didnt work, so we bought a new one, then it wont work with the second telly, in the other room. Bought a new magic eye, and it still doesnt work... Tried everything, but it doesnt work, anyone help?

With the sky eye is it the same channel on each TV or can you watch different channels on different TV's by connecting this?
