    I had an old magic eye that worked fine since it's installation with sky+ 3 years ago. It suddenly stopped working although the led was still illuminated so i figured it was a problem with the magic eye. I bought two new magic eyes and have the same problem with both. I have tried connecting directly to sky+ box but again led lights up but does not change the channel. Can anyone advise what to do next?

    is it the same remote you are using for both tv`s if not try the remote you know works, it could be a fault remote.
    it could also be a break/short in the cable check that out

    I have come across a similar situation where the digibox was at fault.
    It cannot be a open/short in the cable as Kennysatman suggests as the led wouldn't light.

    yeah and the remote works fine with the front panel of sky+ box, so i guess it's a problem with the box.

    Try switching Sky+ off mains for a half minute. That might help!
