5.0 out of 5 stars easy to install, 5 July 2011
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: SLx - Magic Eye IR Extender - For Sky / Sky+ / Sat TV (Accessory)
I bought this item in order to control a sky+ HD box located in a wooden cabinet where the remote signal couldn't reach it unless the doors were open. It took 5 minutes to fit and is working perfectly. As mentioned in previous reviews, the cable is quite short (about 2 feet long), but it was just long enough to come out the back of the cabinet and sit on top under the television.

The hardest part of the installation was identifying the correct port in the back of the sky box without unplugging everything and dragging it all out of the cabinet! Using information gathered from the previous reviews the procedure I used was:

- turn on the power to the RF ports by going into the Services menu and pressing 0 - 0 - 1 - Select on the remote control to load the installer menu (this is for a sky+ HD box; for a regular box 4 - 0 - 1 - Select should work). Ignore any screen changes that occur when you start pressing the buttons. Once the installer menu loads, select the RF Outlets tab and change RF Outlet Power Supply to ON using the arrow buttons on the remote. Press green to save the changes, then the sky button to exit the menu.

- plug the magic eye into RF 2 in the back of the sky box and position the eye where required (in my case on top of the cabinet under the television screen) - use the sticky pad supplied if needed to secure it in place.

Hey presto! Job done. The magic eye even has a little light that flashes when it receives a button press. Very nifty!
