      Magic Eye Issue - But LED is on!

      Ive got an active RF2 cable running to my bedroom connected with a magic eye.

      The light on the magic eye is ON but I cant change channel?

      Surely if LED is on then the cabling must be good and the magic eye is ok?

      Any ideas?

      PS I have connected the magic eye direct to the sky box and checked the RF2 is turned on and both are fine!

      is the cable a single length from the sky box to your set, or is it split to feed more than one set?

      Its a split feed to 2 sets which was done recently. Infact Magic eye worked perfect up to then and shortly after! However sometimes it may work for a short period and stop again. LED is ALWAYS on though.

      Thought it may be a connection issue with splitter? It on outside of house so a bit of wind may move/interfere with connection maybe?

      If you run it through a splitter, you will get a slight voltage drop and a poor return path. Best to fit a 2 way amp that runs from the RF2 9v supply.
