SLx Link Satellite TV Remote Control Extender Ideal for digital satellite TV, allows you to control your Sky box from the second TV from a different room. More Details The SLx Link solves a problem - once you've laid cable around your home to extend your use of Sky Satellite TV to another room you still have to change the channel! The Philex SLx Link simply plugs into the digital coaxial cable where it enters the second TV, and extends remote control back to the Sky Satellite box. Once the SLx Link is in place you can control the Sky Satellite box with the original remote or a suitable universal remote control. If you need to control more than one source (e.g. a Freeview box as well as Sky), then you need to use the SLx Omni Link in conjunction with the SLx Link. What Does It Work With? The SLx Link is absolutely wonderful for Sky TV, including Sky Plus. The only thing we are sure it will not work with is Virgin Media. This is because Virgin Media boxes do not have line power out. You can use the SLx Omni Link or the Bluedelta Smart Blaster in conjunction with the SLx Link to control Virgin Media boxes. Technical Stuff For optimum performance the Philex SLx Link should have a direct connection with no interruptions to the RF out 2 on your Digibox. Splitters, amplifiers and isolated wall plates either drop the voltage (9v) that is being sent from RF out 2 (any capacitors in circuit will pass AC but will block DC), or when sharing the signal the voltage is also shared and drops below its working voltage. To turn the power on from RF2 on a Sky Box: Using a Sky remote press Services, then press 4, then type in 0 1, select, then press 4. Make sure the RF 2 Power is switched ON. Aerial Amplifiers For multiple installations a SLx Aerial Amplifier may be needed such as the SLx 2B, a SLx4B, a SLx6B or a SLx8B - these 'B' type amplifiers have a digital bypass built into them and will also feed 9 volts to each output to power as many SLx Links as you co
Slx Link System comes with an infra-red eye which receives signals from remote controls on a second TW away from the digital receiver, to operate their digital receiver using a remote control from their correct location+.

(UPDATE OCTOBER 2011)
The newer SKYHD boxes will need a new code, not 401 as above.Read more ›
It only took me about 5-10mins to set up. Make sure you read the instructions, they are short and sweet but have a key part in where you enter a number into your sky/sky+ box to activate the RF socket on the box, this in turn powers the philex adapter. I have had this gizmo for nearly a year now and cannot fault it.
A non technical person like me thought you could just plug this into your 2nd TV and view sky off it - however you dont. You have to have an arial from your sky box connected to your 2nd TV - mine is 2 floors up hence I have decided to go for a Video Sender instead.
Hope its 2nd time lucky.
Digisenders apparently pick up interference from Wireless Broadband etc. which can make the picture fuzzy, this in my opinion defeats the object as you expect Sky to have a good digital picture.
The Magic Eye arrived quickly and had full clear instructions on how to fit the Eye to the RF2 outlet of your Sky box, it then showed you how to alter your Sky remote so that it would allow output to the Eye.
A co-axial aerial cable is required to run from your first TV to your 2nd TV, also you need a female connector to connect the co-axial cable to the RF2 on the rear of your Sky box.
Mine didn't work to start with despite tight co-axial connectors, I noticed that the connector was bent at one end of the eye and decided that for £3 it was worth trying to straighten out.
A bit of fiddling around with both Magic Eye and co-axial cable and the red light finally came on (you need to have power to your Sky box for it to work). Then it's simply a case of tuning your 2nd TV into Sky, choose a channel that isn't an analogue one for easiness so that you are sure that you have Sky. The picture on the 2nd TV is perfect.
I have only given it 4*'s due to it being flimsy and needing to be bent back into shape but would definately recommend it to anyone with spare co-axial around the house as a cheap way to get Sky into another room.
Digi-senders would be tidier but a lot more expensive.
Great simple design, that works perfectly, no batteries, no hassle, no problem! I can't recommend this highly enough.
Allows full control of your Sky/Sky+ box from another TV in another room.
Needs direct coax cable link from your sky box to the 2nd TV.
Needs you to activate the RF out voltage ON of your sky box.
Comes with full instructions on how to install.
Operates using your existing Sky remote control.
Easy to install and use.
Remarkable price as they want £19.00 for similar device in Tesco.
