      magic eye intermittently working

      I have a magic eye in 4 rooms and a sky + box in another.Now and again the magic eyes stop working,then some time later decide to work,i can go to the sky box and it works fine so to me it must be the wiring.I have had it in over a year without any problems until recently has anyone else had similar problems?

      Thanks

      Lots of people have problems with magic eyes. The problem is that the power for the eye comes down the cable, and if you have one badly fitted plug or dirty connection, the power doesn't get to the eye. The RF signal from the box can jump any gap, so that will always work.
