Basically I wanted to run sky to two rooms upstairs via the rf2 outlet. What I done was attach a 2 way splitter to the coaxial lead that runs into the main bedroom. I then have two coaxial cables exiting the splitter, one short lead to the tv in the roomand the other to the next bedroom. The problem that I have now is that the magic eye is not working (i.e. no power etc). I realised that there shouldnt have been appliences between the coaxial cable and magic eye, but I never thought this meant a simple splitter couldnt be attached. Any ideas on how to use the magic eye in 2 rooms via the splitter?

thanks for the read

You require a 2 way link amplifier as a splitter will not pass 9v :D

I have done it with a DC pass on one leg but not ideal
