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.
select ( remote)
type 01 (select on remote)
RF outlet Power Supply ON
RF channel 25 ( is best for most areas)
open the remote control, and clean the keypads from oxide, corrosion, dirty. change the batteries and put a new ones.clena the contacts batteries with pencil erase. retight the springs contacts batteries, for better contacts. and try again. Otherwise you must go to the repair shop TV for fix it. God bless you

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.
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.
1. Manually turn on the device (TV, VCR, etc.) to be controlled.
2. Press and hold Code Search button until the red indicator stays on. Release the Code Search button.
3. Press and release the desired mode button (TV, VCR, etc.). The red indicator blink, then stays lit.
Press the Channel Up button repeatedly (up to 300 times) until the
device could be controlled changes channel. The red indicator blinks,
then stays lit. If you accidentally overshoot the code required, press
the Channel Down button to backtrack through the library until the
device changes channel. Pressing Channel Up changes direction to forward again. Press and release the Mute button to install the code.

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.
