      sorry Magic Eye again!

      Hi please help... I've read all the previous posts re Magic Eye problems but alas I still cannot get mine to work... don't think I can handle another night of the Mrs saying 'I told you not to change it, Sky was perfectly fine before...'! ...

      I have my main tv in the lounge and 2 further tv's 1 in the kitchen and the other in the bedroom, all of which worked perfectly well with my old Sky+ box and a magic eye attached to each of the tv's in the kitchen and bedroom.

      I've checked the back of the new HD box and all the cables are in the correct place as before, the only difference being is the sky box is connected to the tv via a HDMI cable now not a scart lead...

      I've tried services 0, 0, 1 select , turned RF2 on but still nothing , when calling Sky they weren't very helpful, just said that HD boxes aren't compatiable with magic eyes... then another person told me I need to connect the magic eye directly into the back of the sky box? don't know why as I didnt do that with the old sky+ box....

      anything else I can try before it goes in the skip?!!

      You've posted this in the Broadband forum about speedtests - might wanna get a mod to move it somewhere more suitable!

      This threads a bit quiet isn't it, I thought someone would of helped you by now.
      Try sending a PM to some experienced Sky user's / assistants to look at your thread and maybe tell a mod to move it to a better section. If its in a more suitable section it will get the correct type of attention you need.
