simon: Check that you have used the RF2 output and that the "RF outlet power supply" is on, as at the top of the page.

Also ensure that there is only one device connected via the Magic Eye link, and if there is you should check there is no short in the cable to the set.

jb38: Marmitek kit is working fine up to now. New TV is a Samsung LE19D450. I think I got that right, I'm not at home just now so that's from memory. Just to let you know that I signed up for updates from the site and I find each e-mail gripping reading, carry on the good work!

I have just connected cable into RF2 and switched on in sky settings and connected it to magic eye on new samsung 32" tv in bedroom - picked up on analogue perfectly and works great. cannot pick up any built in freeview channels now when i switch source to digital. what do i need connector wise to put both into same tv. I have digital aerial in attic for other tv's in house?

Mark: This will likely be because you have not plugged the Freeview aerial into the Sky boxes aerial input socket, as this will pass through the Sky box picking up the Sky boxes modulators analogue signal in the process, then feeding both analogue and digital signals to your various TV's.

Of course I take it you have ensured that the Sky boxes RF output signal isn't going to clash with any of the digital channels you are receiving? unable to advise on this as you haven't given your post code.

John: Using the SETTINGS/PICTURE menu on the Sky box, set the appropriate screen aspect ratio 16:9 or 4:3 for the "Secondary" output.

Hi. Please could you tell me how to change the analog output on a Sky+HD Terrabyte box from Channel 68 as I need my two Sky boxes on different analog outputs. Thanks. David

Hi there

I have Sky+ HD in my lounge with an RF feed up to the bedroom connected via a Magic Eye

For some reason when I woke this morning the Sky picture is very fuzzy (channel 6 on the analogue) whilst channels 1-5 are clear.

I've had messages about auto retuning the tv due to changes etc which have been done but didnt think this would affect the Sky picture upstairs??

Any help REALLY appreciated
