Question about Bose Lifestyle 8 series II System
I have a Lifestyle 8 system which is 5 years old. I decided to use for the first time, a co-axial cable to connect my Philips DVD player (1 yr old) to my Bose receiver. The problem i am encountering is that there is noise skipping, but nothing wrong with the picture (video). This occurs after 5 minutes. There is however no noise skipping if i use analog cables to connect the DVD player to the Bose reciever. I have been told by Bose that it is probably a fault with the DVD player, and suggest i use a new DVD player. Is this right?
Would not exactly agree with bose proposed solution, however easy to test......
borrow a dvd palyer of a different model and type , ensure that the output from the dvd player is set correctly ie. 5.1
you need to verify that the co ax you are useing is not damaged, faulty and is connected both ends correctly,
if bose give you some hassle get a spare set of cable to be sure the connect or to the co- ax is not damaged in any way.
i suggest there is a problem with the on board decode for dolby 5.1, known as SPDIF = "S P diff " ( a system designed in conjunction with SONY and PHILIPS and used on nearly every 5.1 decoder sold in the world) easy to fix its usually a firmware upgarde or reset usually done in the factory, simple problem, could have been caused by electrical interference or unusual magnetisim problem post manufacturing or possible on site problem, however from your point of view impossible to prove either way.
must point out that analog cables don't carry a 5.1 signal. and also should point out that co -ax is not 100% necessary nor the only way to push a 5.1 signal into that bassbox.
check your cables first , then borrow a dvd player, then bring it back to bose and tell them to fix it. if its still wrong.
