View TV in multiple rooms - HELP!!!

I am having such a nightmare. Currently I have a TV with Sky+ set up in the lounge. From here I have an aerial cable that goes to the upstairs bedroom via a TV link with an ir eye. This all works 100% well and you can change the channels from the bedroom.

HOWEVER!!! I recently installed a third television in the dining room and have run an aerial cable through the house to this TV. The aerial is fed through an aerial booster which is attached to the sky+ box and has another tv link with ir eye on it in the dining room. However I cannot change channels on the dining room TV and to be honest the picture is poor. Any ideas what I am doing wrong as when I take the bedroom tv out of the equation and wire the lounge and dining room together I can change channels? Maybe its a faulty aerial booster? But the picture is also poor, any help wld be much appreciated!

Many amplifiers/boosters will NOT pass either the power required for a magic eye OR the remote signal back to the dodgibox OR both. You need an amplifier/booster that states magic eye/sky link compatible. This also applies to wallplates.

I can't imagine how you've connected everything. Please provide a wiring sketch and then I'll tell you how to do it properly.
