    HI, I currently have my sky working with a magic eye in another room. Today I got another stelite fitted, Italian channels and was wondering if I could do the same again with another magic eye or would it interfere?

    thanks

    I think magic eyes only work with Sky digiboxes. I could be wrong - if I am I'm sure a 'senior member' will correct me. :D

    Try a 'Power-Mid' remote extender. I've used one for years and it always works great. They're about £30 I think.

    Hope this helps.

    A Dork.

    What do you mean by "stelite"? Is this a make of Digital satellite receiver?

    If so, you could use the Powermid as suggested. Or, if there's a cable going upstairs, you could use a Triax-link system or similar. Lots of choices.

    In other words "receiver" (since the satellite is 23,000 miles up in space. :)

    Glad we got that cleared up.

    My answer stands.

    Fernsehman - a little petty, that one! I think we all realised it was a typo.

    Leave the petty remarks to others who do it much, much better. :laugh:

    I believe in clarity in communication. For example, if I go into a shop and ask for a dish I would be quite cross if they offered me a spoon. Likewise in discussions involving satellites, dishes, receivers, LNBs and what have you, it's important to type what you mean if you want an answer that helps.

    I'm not here to be "petty", or to pick arguments. I'm here to try to help people and I can only do that if they make their meaning clear.

    As for "magic eyes" there are several types of remote extender. You could try the Triax-Link system which sends signals through the TV coax and works with any remote. A "Google" search should find plenty of suppliers.

    Antonioconte - we all knew what you meant (except Fernsehman, obviously).

    As I said earlier - I use a PowerMid and have done for years. It will work with most equipment, not just satellite recievers, with the exception of Pace cable boxes and some TV's.

    You can find one here http://www.satcure.co.uk/accs/page3.htm

    Hope this helps.
