    Hi all,

    Need some connection advice please.

    I have a large shed at the bottom of my garden that's used as a gym and lounge.

    In there, I have a large but quite old tv that I was looking to replace. It's mainly used for PS3 and Sky (football) using an RF Magic eye connection.

    If I were to purchase a projector, what would be the best way of hooking up the magic eye so I could still get my sky TV? Could I just purchase a blu-ray player with an RF input, run it through there, then connect to the projector?

    Thanks for any help :)

    You won’t get a Blu-ray player with an RF input.

    You would need something with an analogue TV tuner that can pick up the RF signal then output it to your projector over whatever type of video input it has (composite, scart, etc). You could do this with pretty much any VHS/DVD/Blu-ray recorder.
