      3D activation - Magic eyes not working

      Hi,
      Last night I activated sky 3D, ready for my 3D telly being delivered.
      I have restarted my sky HD box and I can see the split picture on channel 217 great - but the bad new is that my magic eyes are now not working.
      Has anyone else encountered this?
      I have checked the RF Out settings in the settings menu and RF channel is 65 and RF power is set to on.
      My cables havent changed so it cant be that. My Sky HD+ box is a Samsung.
      Many thanks
      Rob.

      A friend of mine said to force a full reboot by switching off and unplugging.
      Switched it off and left it unplugged while I went out for a couple of hours.
      Switched the power on and left for a while before switching on.
      Magic eyes now working fine.
      Not sure how long you have to switch it off for but worked a treet.

      That's always a bugs from sky+ HD box, waste of time, what the point of 3D if it kept doing like that.

      Plug the magic eye directly into the box and see if it works then, if it does then that shows the eye works and it has to be the cable.
