Magic eye

Hi I would like to put my V6 box in a cupboard to keep things tidy and have a "magic eye" to pick up the remote control. I don't need to try and watch through different TVs just control the V6 when it's in the cupboard. Anyone know of anything suitable? Thanks Rich

Re: Magic eye

No need for anything.

A paired V6 remote will operate a V6 from anywhere.

Re: Magic eye

Hi Thanks for the quick reply. The V6 box in our lounge can be controlled by it's remote from a different room even through walls. The box in our kitchen, the one I want to put in a cupboard, will only respond to the remote if the remote is pointing directly at it and certainly won't respond if I put it in said cupboard. I've swapped the batteries in the remote but to no avail! Very strange.

Re: Magic eye

All sorted. Re-paired the remote by pressing the channel down button on the V6 box for 10 seconds and then pressing the info button on the remote for 7 seconds - problem solved.
