    Can anyone tell me why I might not be able to control my Sky Plus box via either of my magic eye connected TV's, even though I have a perfect picture and the red LED on the magic eye is lit is both cases?? I am using the Sky plus remote.

    Cheers

    You say you have more than one TV connected...how have you split the signal ? if its just a bog standard Y splitter then I think you need a specific verson which handles the IR signals a well.

    What happens if you just connect one TV directly...does it work then ?

    Hi Lee,

    I've got a magic eye compliant distribution amplifier in my loft which passes the 9v (re the red LED) so you can see my confusion.......

    Cheers

    I wish it hadn't, but it has worked perfectly.
    The only things I haven't tried are to re-boot the amplifier and change the RF output of the sky Plus

    good one eh!
