How do I run a blu-ray player through the Bose 3-2-1 sound system? The Bose is the only speaker system we have. Short of getting a whole new sound system, I need to know what goes where with what wires/HDMI cords.
Connect an HDMI cord from the bluray player to a free input on your HDTV. Then connect the standard WHITE/RED stereo cable from the bluray player into the AUX input in the back of your 3-2-1 system and voila!
You may need to check the configuration of your bluray player to make sure that is outputting stereo audio, for this please refer to the player's user manual. Other than that, you should be alright.

Yes, that is what you need to do. Connect the BR player direct to the TV and send the audio to an input on the BOSE. Of course any audio you pipe through the BOSE will be processed to their specs. One day they will catch up to HD and BR!
Unfortunately this is impossible on the 321 series II systems. There also is no audio output on the media center to send to another amp either. As you may know, the 2 speakers are actually 4 speakers. Each small speaker array has 2 drivers. The 2 on the outside will project rear-channel audio to the sides, so placement of these speakers is important. Honestly, adding speakers would not make this sound very good.
If the sound isn't too great as is, make sure you're using digital audio cables (optical or coax) from any external sources like a cable box or Blu-ray player. (if you don't see a Dolby Digital 5.1, DTS 5.1 or PCM 2.0 read-out on front of the media center, you'll know it's not digital. DVDs the exception)
Sounds like you might be out of luck with the older 3-2-1 system. I am in the same boat, and am thinking I will only be able to utilize the "audio out" on the back of my Samsung LCD, and run that to the "aux in" on the Bose 3-2-1. This of course will not allow me to utilize the 3-2-1's DVD player, but by using a seperate DVD player, such as a Blu-Ray hooked to the LDC TV, the video will make it to the screen, and then the audio should make it through the Bose 3-2-1 speakers. Probably not the "best" solution, but one that I am going to attempt.
Are you useing a digital coaxil cable? or optical cable?(you will need one of these connections to get 5.1 surround!) the white /red rca jacks will not do the 5.1 surround! (back speakers)
