Hello Joe I would like to connect LG TV with sky box downstairs through magic eye help

Hi Shashi,To connect to the the Sky Box through Magic Eye, on the rear of your Sky digital receiver there is an aerial input, an aerial output (for connection to your TV) and an extra output on the back for connection to a second TV set. This second connection is named the RF2 Out.Once setup via the Skybox Menu, this RF2 output will send a 9volt supply to power and control your Magic Eye - have you set this up in the Skybox menu yet?
Expert:  Pete replied 1 year ago.
Once this is done, connect one end of the cable into the RF2 Output on the back of the Sky box and the other end to the Magic Eye which in turn plugs into the aerial connection of the secondary TV.

Now all you have to do is tune your secondary TV in to the correct analogue channel and use a Sky remote that is the same as your Sky box (Standard, Sky+ or Sky HD) to have control over the sky box from the second room.

Ok, it was working and suddenly stopped - did anything change?Are you sure you are using the correct analogue station?Have you checked all of the wiring and connections?Could you try connecting a TV closer to the box with a short cable and see if it picks it up ok?
