Ok, I did a bit of research for you, and it appears NO.
See the "Sky" part if it is proprietary to, ahem... Sky..and the control codes etc, can only be processed by a Sky Decoder, that has the software to "Talk" to the device.
It is really only an IR "Extender" that routes the RC to the master control unit.
Hope this sorts it out.

Hi, im afraid not the magic eye only works at one frequency so it would be like trying to use your sky remote to try and change the channels on virgin media box, and their is also no way of changing the frequency, if you wanted to send it to another room and control it from that room then all you need to do is get a normal sender unit if your using scart leads then just go to somewhere like maplin and ask for a av sender so then this sends the signal from the scart lead to another telly and you also get and eye with it that allows any remote to send the signal from one room to the virgin box, plus these senders can be used with anything as long as they have the scart or av fitting you can use them for dvd,vcr, so they can be used with any device so it would be a better idea to buy one if these.

let me know if you need further assistance ok

    no problem, i know its a pain switching from one to the other but you could sell the sky one on and put the money towards a sender unit that you can use

TV link not working with my LG 50PH660V 50-inch Widescreen 1080p Full HD 3D Smart Plasma TV with Freeview HD/600Hz. I connected coax cable to my Sky Box, switching on the RF on, but I can not get it w


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.

Sky Magic Eye not working over SLX 8 way booster/spliter


have you got it set on second out put on the sky box as number one is just normal. all cables have to be set to second output using a splitter box . so its like this.
arial in booster.
out booster to sky box.
out to tv/etc on first output on sky box.
second out put to spliter linc. ( eg 4 rooms out four way splitter)
each room with sky eye fitted to end of the aerial from number feed from sky box.
with each room with Eye sky can be controlled
also check that RF outlet power supply is set on sky+ or HD in settings menu.
access this.
settings
select ( remote)
type 01 (select on remote)
RF outlets.
RF outlet Power Supply ON
RF channel 25 ( is best for most areas)

Virgin tvvo box


Not sure about about the transmitter but the magic eye thing is possible however you wouldn't be able to change channel unless your pointing your remote at your box because a sky box has power going through the magic eye but a virgin box doesn't

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

Is there a suitable splitter I can use on the RF out on my sky HD box to feed 3 bedrooms allowing digital freeview and magic eye use?


You better off buying a four way distribution amp instead of using a splitter
Make sure the amp is sky and magic eye friendly

Cannot get my sky guide to respond on my Loewe Articos 32,i think the kids have scrambled the tv remote! Any ideas?


There are several things that can stop your Sky remote from working.

step one:
get a mobile that has a camera on it. point the remote at the camera and press the TV guide button on the remote you should see a little light by looking through your camera. This is because cameras dont like infrared

if you see the light whilest looking from the camera phone then the remote is working.

Step 2:
There can interfearance from devices like WII's or if your television has a back light you can turn this down and see if this is going to make any difference to the sky box.

If it does you know what is casuing the problem.

Step 3:
There may be another solution to your problem. Go onto Ebay and type in there Magic eye. you can get them from Argos but you will be paying 3 times if not more then you can get them off ebay.

once you've got the magic eye. plug this into the back of your sky box into RF OUT 2 this must be in 2 due to it providing 9v to the eye.
on your sky remote press services, 4, 0 1 select. go to Rf setting and turn this option to ON and then go down to save. you should see a little red light on the magic eye come on this is all done.

Now try your remote as normal.

I fit sky and a lot of the HD sky+ boxes have rubbish IR (infrared) so this sorts out a lot of problems.

Hope this helps

Sky magic eye not working on hd


I work for Sky as an Engineer.

on your Sky HD remote:

service,
4,
0 1 select

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

Rf2 outlet from sky hd box


on your sky remote

make sure the rf is set to on
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.
