Hi can anyone tell me how to turn on the RF2 9v on a sky+hd box. Its a brand new box and the usual services 4 0 1 doesn't seem to work.

The keying sequence is in Kenneth's post immediately above yours. Complete the sequence without pausing between key presses and without waiting for the screen to change after each press - it won't. A tip is to avoid looking at the screen at all while you're doing this, look at the remote instead.

I have follwed the instructions posted, wsitched power on and pressed green button to save, but the picture is sent to the other TV, but no control with remote (magic eye does not light). What am I missing?

Check the magic eye is ok and the RF output power is on, by plugging the eye directly into the RF2 socket at the back of your sky box. If it lights ok, then you have a break in the DC circuit somewhere between the RF2 socket and the end of the coax where you plug in the eye.

Is there any other way to check whether the power is working out of the RF2?
I've tried to set up the magic eye with 2 different ones, the picture works and is sent to the second tv fine, but I just can't seem to get the magic eye's working. I have tried pluggin both into the back of the sky+ hd box but both of them don't seem to be getting power?

Assuming the RF2 output power is set to 'on'? Yes, you can check with a voltmeter, if you have one. Put the red probe on the centre pin of the RF2 output socket, and the black one on the outer part of the socket (don't short them!) and you should see a reading of about 9v DC.

It depends if it's designed to work with low voltage DC. Many of the simpler ones are designed to detect mains voltage only. You would need to check the instructions that came with it, I'm afraid.
