Why did you add campden tablets AND boil? You really only need to do one or the other.
We usually recomend not boiling because it:
1) changes the flavour, makes it taste cooked.
2) sets the pectins and leaves the cider foggy.
3) is much more work then adding campden
4) I can't thing of 4th reason... I just wanted a forth point! :-D
Can you post a picture? It will be easier to know what is going on if we can see it.
