Magic Eye - Does it have to be plugged into the TV?


Standard Member
I am currently planning the AV setup for my new house. The house is going to have lots of Cat5 / Cat6 in it and I intend to distribute the Sky HD picture over that. I'm not bothered about getting different channels in different rooms, I just want to be able to watch the footy in HD in the kitchen, living room and in bed.

I also want to be able to use the remote control in each of those rooms to control the Sky box. The simplest way that I can see of doing it is to put the RF2 output into an amplified splitter (with a bypass) and run coax to each point so that I can use a Magic Eye. The question I have is that the last TV that I bought (a Panasonic plasma) does not have an RF connection. Does the Magic Eye have to be plugged into the TV for it to work or is it enough just to have it plugged into the coax cable?
