My Magic Eye worked perfectly with a remote TV and my old Sky+ Box. However I have not been able to get it to work with HD+ Box. I have enabled the RF outlets on my HD Box, connected the magic eye but there is no red light and it won't respond to remote control.
Can anyone help?

First try re-booting your sky box, then check to see the RF outlet power is turned on (don't forget to save settings).
If there's still no red light on your magic eye, try connecting it directly into the RF2 output socket of your sky box. If the red led lights, your problem is with the cabling/connectors from the RF2 socket to your remote TV.

just setup a new magic eye and have been strugling for over 2 hours to work out why the magic eye was working in the upstair bedroom, but the red light would not come on. After using the very helpfull information that you gave, I managed to get into the sky engineers additional menu and activated the RF.2 Outlet on the back of the Sky HD Box.
I really appreciate you experteze and many thank for this.

First thing I'd check is that your Sky box is still providing the 9v DC on its RF2 output. Just plug your magic eye directly into the RF2 socket to test. If the LED glows red, your Sky box is providing current, and your problem is a break somewhere in the cable to your second TV or a poorly fitted plug. In relation to the plug, the centre pin must be screwed or soldered to the stiff centre wire of the coax - a push fit may or may not work initially, but even if it does it will eventually oxidise and fail.
