i brought a magic eye for my bed room, im so fed up with the thing it just will not work !!!!!!
i have put it in the back of the sky+ box and gone into the menu and turned it on
the led light came on so that all OK,
i live in a very small one bed room flat, so i ran the cable from my living room to my bed room, i pluged it all in, but my room TV said no signal, i could use the sky+ remote to change the channel in my room coz i could hear it change in the living room ????, i disconnected the link and could not change the channel from my room
so the eye works, what am i doing or not doing can any one please help me.
i did buy a free veiw box for my room again the TV (new flat screen) said no signal.
i can only get channels BBC1 BBC2 and ITV use the same cable to the arial point in the living wall
the bed room TV is very fuzzey is that why the eye will not work, or do i need to tune the bed room
TV when it says no signal i cant do anything, i cant change the channel, its just a blue screen with no signal in the middle
im so fed up
please can anyone help and thank you very much

The coax cable from RF2 on the digibox should be connected to 'TV Aerial' on the back of the second tv. You then have to run an analogue scan ( NOT DVB ) on the second tv to receive the signal from the Sky box. When the scan is complete, give it a channel number ( usually Ch6 ) . If the picture is not good, you'll probably have to try a lower RF Channel number on the Sky box, then rescan the second tv.

Thank you for your reply, i need to ask a few more questions though,
the cable im using is white (also have a short black one too)
the ends have pre made coaxial on, female i think, i need a male coaxial connector, which i have, to connect to back of sky box IS THIS THE RIGHT CABLE, for my bed room TV do i run the scan when ive conneted the eye or before, just to say when i connect the eye, the TV screen is blue and it says no signal and all i can do is turn it off it will not change channels or run scans when the eye is conneted all i get is no signal blue screen
thank you so much for your help but need a little bit more to get this eye working

I have had magic eye in my bedroom for the last 12 months and it all worked fine. However last night it stopped working. (can watch channel but unable to change) I have read the forum and turned the skybox and the tv in the bedroom off, Tried taking the battery out and holding the select button for 60 seconds, and checking if the RMF feed is switched to on and checking the control works by trying direct on to the sky box
- As the magic eye sits above the wardrobe door it has not been touched so little chance of damage (and yes the red light is on
appreciate some suggestions what I can do next
