Installing TV Link - 'magic eye'

Hello there, Could you please help me?  I have 1 TV with a SKY Box in a Living Room and 1 TV - Mikomi 15 LCD 250 in my Bedroom. I bought a TV Link to be able to watch SKY on my Bedroom TV. I have done everything what they said in that TV Link leaflet on TV with Sky box (and it gave me the number, which I wrote down). then the leaflet said to install TV Link on a TV in my bedroom by a guidance book which, unfortunately I don't have anymore, because I lost it... So I don't know how to do it. So could anybody, please, help me, how and what can I do (step by step) to install that TV link, please? They were saying in the leaflet to set the SKY programs on a not used channel (so it could be either 0 or 6) Does it make a sense to anyone, please? Thank you very much! Judit

SOURCE: technika tv lcd 19-907 tuning in to sky in bedroom.

Hi, with regards the tuning in of the required station I started from the beginning again and after the digital channels had been automatically tuned in it asked if you wanted to tune in the analogue channels . I clicked on the yes button and it tuned in a number of channels and when checking through the channels I found the sky channel required from downstairs which is linked by an aerial connection.
AS Gordon Ramsey would say :------ telly tuned in DONE

SOURCE: technika tv lcd 19-907 tuning in to sky in bedroom.

Hi i had the same problem but i have sorted mine now. What i was doing wrong was i wasnt tuning in the analoge channels only the freeview digital ones. To do this you need to first turn your tv on. Then press the "source" button, this will bring up a little menu at the top left hand side. When this menu comes up press the "Programme +" button (the one that you use for changing channels near the volume button) press this until you get up to "TV", when T.V is highlighted just wait 3 secs and it will switch over. You will probably get a blue screen with a no signal message (you are now on analogue) when you get this blue screen press the "tune" button. It will automatically start tuning in all of your channels, at first they will be fuzzy but as it works they will become clearer. Your sky channel will also be tuned in. When mine tuned in it didnt tune them in on the right numbers though, bbc2 was on number 1 etc. If you ever need to use a playstation or something it goes into the scart connection at the side of the t.v and you need to press "source" and go up to "scart". To get back onto the digital channels just press "dtv/dvd".
hope i helped!

SOURCE: I have 3 digital tv's one in the lounge/bedroom

Loosing digital channels is equivlent to a snowy analog channel, check you cable connections, and splitters to the tv, since you have two of them out, it does not make sense that it is your tv. It is a conneciton in your cable line somewhere.

SOURCE: have lost the link from sky+ to a second tv which

Hello K Agate,

In the main room where the Sky + is locate. With the sky remote press the following.

Services.
4
0,1,select
4 (rf)

Ensure that the RF power to set to on, and take a mental note of the channel number the RF is set to. I normally set this to 38 it is upto you.

Now check that the coax lead that links the sky+ box to the 2nd room is plugged into RF out 2 on the back of the sky+ box.

Now go into the other room and make sure that there is a red LED light on your magic eye. If there is then great. If not there may be a fault with you eye. A good way to check this would be to connect it straight into the back of you Sky+ RF OUT 2 port. This would also check to see if there is any fault with the coax cable feeding the other room.

Assuming that there is a Red LED light on the eye when its plugged into the back of the TV in the other room (not the one with the sky box in), This means that there is power getting to it from the Sky + box.
Put your sky box on the TV GUIDE screen. This will make tuning it in a lot easier.

in the other room with your tv remote press the following
Channel 6 or which ever number you want it on.(analogue)
then MENU on the remote.
Go to MANUAL STORE
Then if you go down to where it give you a C ** number just type in what you retrieved from the sky RF menu.
That should bring your sky up then all you need to do now is STORE.
That should be you all sorted out now.

Hope all goes well. If so then please leave a Thumbs up

SOURCE: I am about to receive an LG32LF4700 Freesat/HD TV

Yes you can split the signal out from the back of the Freesat/HD (not the TV)to the second TV.
Look what outputs are on the Freesat box - the RF (standard cable) output should go to the 2nd TV (TV set to CH3) and the a/v cables,HDMI or DVI cable should go to the new TV - Note:To receive HD the output from the Freesat should be either HDMI,DVI or Composite output (RGB video jacks) with red White for audio. If you have HDMI this is best - it also provides audio.

Hi Jim, your nearly there, all you need to do is go into the tv menu and move from DTV to the old type channel numbers and then find the bit where you can manually tune the tv to channel 68.
Have a sky menu picture running and you will see it come in.

Just installed a sky magic eye to my digital tv upstairs, works perfect. however I have now lost all my digital channels!!


Hi

If you have installed a sky magic eye, i am assuming you have taken a sky feed from the RF outlet of the back of the sky box to view sky in another room, if this is the case, this is an analogue feed which you would have to tune in manually to the second tv, this would suggest that you havent lost the digital signal you just have you second tv selected on analogue. On the assumption your system is connected like the following;

Sky box connections

Main aerial input
sky sat input
rf out to second tv

My satellite remote control only work at close distance I have canged the batteries I tried it with the other box from bedroom in bedroom they work fine in the sitting room both dont work


Hello Aykuturer,

There are two things that you can try to resolve this problem.

1) most common interferrance for the sky remotes are WII sensors to close to box. or the TV back light is interfearing with it. If this is the case then turn off the WII (if you have one) and try that. If it is the TV back light then you can turn this down or off.

2) If you are still not getting any joy from these then you could always go to EBAY and purchase a Magic Eye / Remote Eye. They are resonably cheap from there.

Once you have got your Magic eye. Connect it into RF OUT 2 at the back of your sky box.
Then with the remote press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, Select then 4 make sure that you turn then power on and then save.

This will sort out any IR problems you are experiencing.

Hope this helps you out, If this does then please leave a thumbs up.

SKY DIGIBOX 2nd RF frequency


your in luck, I work for sky as an Engineer.

Firstly go to the main telly where your sky box is.

Using the sky remote press the following buttons.
SERVICES
4
0,1,SELECT
go to RF
In this menu I would set the RF channel to 38 and turn the power ON and then down to save.

now leave it on the blue menu screen (sky menu)

go to the other room where you link from your sky box is connected to.
press the tv button on that remote and then select channel 6 on the remote

Then go into the menu for the tv and then to setup. go to MANUAL TUNE/SEARCH with most new tv you can scroll down to were it says C _ _ you can then input your channel number as 38 the same as you setup on your sky box.

Dont forget to save the settings and that should be you. You should be able to see the sky menu on the telly with the link on. (that is why I asked you to leave the sky menu on that way you know you havent just tuned it into your normal terrestrial channels.

The reason I told you to turn the power onto the link was so that you can purchase a Magic eye. This will allow you to turn your sky box over from the 2nd room without having to keeping going to the main tv to change over.

here is a link to a random site with a picture of a magic eye on. you can purchase these from many places or even Ebay. here is the link anyway.

Sky magic eye not working on hd


I work for Sky as an Engineer.

on your Sky HD remote:

service,
4,
0 1 select
4
make sure the power is turned ON

now go to the room you can not change the sky channels over with.
you should notice on the magic eye itself should now have a Red led light on it now. you should now be able to change the channel over just remember to press the blue sky button on the remote at the top otherwise this will not operate the sky box.

If not unplug this magic eye and try this directly into RF out 2 to make sure that its not the magic eye that is at fault. If it is working correctly then the light will appear.

Hope this helps

Stopped receiving sky on second tv - does my samsung need a reset


I install a lot of magic eyes etc.

You have checked that the magic eye lights up when it is connected directly into the sky box. So your eye is working correctly.

the next step I would take is with your sky remote in your main room. press SERVICES, 4, 0,1, SELECT go to RF settings and check the rf channel and make sure the power is on. Take a mental note of the channel number.

Now go into the room where the link is feeding. Turn on the TV and go to channel number 6 press your MENU button and then go down to setup. go across to manual install and then down to the channel number type in what you retrieved from you box ie rf channel and then type it in and STORE.

If you go into your main room and just put the normal tv guide on ie blue screen. then check that your getting the sky into the other room. IF you are then great it just needed tuning in. IF not I would remake the coax connectors. as there may be a bit of copper braid touching the centre core. once this is done your sky should be on all you need to do now is put the eye back on. Once you have done this the red light should appear on your magic eye. if not go to your main box and follow the first instructions I gave you and turn the power off on the RF and then save and then go back in and turn it back on and save.

Hope this sorts out your problem

Cheers

Remember the channel rf number,

go to your television the link is to.
go to menu then setup and then manual tune
select the channel you want to view sky on. normally channel 6 on your analogue
then go to Channel type in whatever the rf setting was on your main sky box then press save.

that is your telly sorted out. if you have a magic eye connected at the link end you should see a red led light lit up.
if not remove the magic eye and connect it straight into the back of your sky box RF2
just to make sure that the eye is not at fault.

hope this helps
ill check in a day or two to see if you need more help.
