    HI all

    Im new to this and looking for guidance

    I have a standalone NTL/Samsung silver STB
    what im wanting to do is to view this box
    in another room on a slave tv set
    and to remotely be able to
    switch channels from viewing room

    I gather there is different magic eyes

    Is this possible or am I looking for the holy grail

    If anybody has a working setup
    please advise what is required..

    Thanks in advance for any comments

    Try a Digisender - I had Telewest and didn't want the bother of running cables all over the house, worked a treat. Be careful though, the magic eye did not work on the Telewest and NTL boxes unless you bought Digisender Gold which was quite a bit more expensive.

    Thanks friend

    I saw on some forum that somebody used a philex omni link+
    or something like that from local B&Q,

    but unfortunately lost all info on it

    any comments appreciated..

    think magic eye had to be fixed
    next to channel number or something
