Sky+ & Sky Magic eye driving me mad


Standard Member

Can anyone help.............. PLEASE!!!

Just got Sky+, had normal sky before. Had it working through a magic eye in the bedroom as well. Changed to Sky+ and although the light still lit on the eye itself i would control the Sky+ from the bedroom.

So i bought a new Sky eye (a silver one) and plugged it in and again the light came on and again it didnt work.

I followed the advice given somewhere about plugging the eye into the back of the Sky+ box to see if i could work the box using the eye and it still would work.

To add insult to injury now when i plug the eye into the box now the red light dosent even light up.

What a mess..........can anyone please advise:lease:
Many thanks

I think there are some "not"'s missing in your post.


Hi PSW, welcome to AVF, and that's right about your post not saying what you intended it to say.
My advice is to give up on "magic eyes" and get a wireless IR Extender instead.

I'd hazzard to guess when you tried to test the eye at the bax of the box you plugged the eye in the wrong way round. Worth trying again, was is a new or second had box?
