Hi,
Just wondering is it possible to run a Magic eye to a bedroom from a Virgin Media box, or what would be the best way to achieve it. Thanks

Not possible on VM as no RF feed. Few options though (although no straight forward

1) Scart to RF convertor - then use the RF feed you was gonna use for magic eye (but you won't have remote control facility)

2) HDMI wireless sender - usually expensive

3) Run HDMI into the room you want - if more than 10m then you need HDMI boosters

4) Depending on your package pay VM £6.50pm extra for additional box

Hope that helps

Easier option but it is basic,Check the box to see if it has a loop feed,If so then you can run a cable from loop to upstairs,You cant change channels but if it is just to watch tv at night it will work,Dont know the box your using sorry so could be wrong

VM boxes don't have loop feeds
 
Another two options, bit more complicated though and not ideal as bit fiddly:

5) The RF connection you were gonna use for magic eye, put a Sat connector on each end. Then you can move this box from existing location to new location when you need to watch TV in new location by connecting old.location to RF feed (yes I know it's not Ideal but it's cheap). You can move back and forth at leisure then.


6) Ask VM for an additional outlet, depending on package it's £6.50pm. no install charge. After two months cancel the additional outlet and you will have a professionally installer outlet connection in your new location and you could just move your existing box to the new location when you need to watch TV

I know all...not ideal options but they ARE options

You could always buy a Firestick or Firetv box or any android really, install Kodi and then link to your Zgemma that way.

doesnt take much time if youre fluent with Kodi or said devices.

You can watch the same channels at the same time however if you want to control the channels through Kodi youd have to put the Zgemma in standby...

Quick, easy and cheap multiroom.
