Sky Magic Eye - Help!

okay, looking at getting a magic eye to watch sky upstairs. i have a multiroom feed going into the room but my old blue card no longer works on anything except ch 1-4 and e4 etc. how do they work? does the cable have to go direct from the downstairs sky box or can i plug it into the feed from the room? rep for your help :-)

magic eye controls the box in another room so would have to come from your downstairs box into the upstairs room from the RF out of the downstairs box.
magic eye is just a way of using the remote to operate the downstairs box - wont work using the feed from the dish

I'm confused as to the Magic Eye.. if you have multiroom you don't need one, you just use the remote on your new box.. If the question is about your sky card not working on the new box then I would phone sky up and ask them for help

you need to get a coax cable from the RF out on the box (downstairs) to the TV upstairs with the eye on the end and put the eye into the RF on the TV...

thanks, it was confusing me! so im guessing its alot of wire i need then? is the coax cable thick? (would it fit through the holes already drilled for the upstairs feed?)

no, i had multiroom in the bedroom but cancelled it and kept it in my 2 main rooms. as i have an old box and card there i can no longer get all the "free" channels in the bedroom, thats why i was asking about the magic eye
