Connecting PS2 to Bose Lifestyle 18

I am having difficulty connecting my PS2 to my bose lifestyle18. I have a projector setup, using all composite video connections. I have a PS3 connected via HDMI to the Projector and a digital optical audio output for the sound.

My issue is how can I connect PS2 to the Bose lifestyle with the setup I already have ? I can sort out the siund, how can I get video, since all video outputs are used ?

Trying to connecting my Bose lifestyle to my Samsung led smart tv to play a DVD with a yellow video cord and picture is blurry and double and has jo color? Any ideas how to fix Bose lifestyle is older...


Without the specific LifeStyle model # it's not easy to say for sure, but it sounds like you might have a composite cable plugged into a component video output of the Bose. Assuming it does not have HDMI output, it might have white/red/yellow (RCA-type jacks, aka "phono") and that yellow jack is a composite video output. It would plug into the same color jack on the TV. There are also RGB (Red/Green/Blue) component outputs on many devices and similar inputs on the TV, so you have to match like color out to same color in and make sure the TV is set to composite video input, not HDMI nor component.

Also could just be a bad cable. It's always the cheap things that we overlook, so with the same output/input setup, assuming you match type, try a different cable. The actual color of the end on the cable does not matter, but don't plug a yellow-colored output jack to a red, white, blue or green input jack on the TV - that won't work.

I just purchased a Harman Kardon AVR 2650 and use it with a projector. It says to use the set up button and there isn't one. can't get on screen menu to set up


HI,
First of all check the HDMI connections. You have to connect the HDMI Monitor out to Your projector.. And HDMI 1 to blueray or to a dvd player what you have.

To access the setup on Harman Kardon avr Just press the AVR button on the remote control. You can find the AVR button on the lowest postion of the remote . When you press the AVR button the ON SCREEN menu will pop up. Do the settings you needed.

One more thing try to use HDMI cable wih a vertion of 1.4a.

If you are not able to get the AVR ON SCREEN menu through HDMI then connect the composite monitor out In the rear of the avr to the projectors composite video input. Select the projectors composite input.

Then press the AVR button. Connect the mic to your Avr which coms with it. Select the speaker setup From the menu. Then select Automatic setup.

If you need any more assistance feel free to contact me throug fixya or by mail.

Connect ps3 to a non HD tv and picture only black and white?


Are you connecting it to a new SD tv after having been connected to an HD set? You can force the system to reset the video resolution settings by pressing and holding the On/Off button after the system has already turned on. I believe it is ~5-10sec. You will hear another beep after the initial startup beep. This will reset video setting to default and go through the resolution setup wizard again.

However, it is also possible that you are trying to connect a component cable to a composite tv. They are VERY different signals even though the cables fit interchangeably. If you use the Green component cable for video on a composite tv you will only see a grayscale image of the picture. This is most likely your issue. If this is the case you will need to buy a composite cable for the PS3 (the PS2 one is the exact same as the PS3 one.)

FYI Component cable has Red, Green, & Blue cables. Composite has Yellow (Video), White (Left Audio), Red (Right Audio). Both are normal RCA type plugs and will fit in each others plugs, but the signals are VERY different.

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr


You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.

PS3 No signal to the TV


To solve this, when the ps3 is in standby (solid red light), just hold the power button. It should beep on, then beep again in about 5 seconds. This will automatically search for the optimal audio video output. if if beeps on then turns off, just try again, it takes 1 or 2 tries sometimes. the reason this is happening is because your ps3 is set to one AV output, ex. composite(red yellow white), HDMI, and then you changed the cable to a different one. another way to fix it is plug both cables, HDMI and composite, into the tv and ps3, then go to settings and change the output to the desired one.

Hello,I have a Bose Lifestyle


If you use both s-video and composite (yellow) video at the same time on the bose system, it thinks you want to use the component adapter (which is included with the system). Just use one or the other. But if this is still in black and white (it may because the system still thinks you're using the adapter) just press "system" on the bose remote, and go to "video" and then "video connector" If video connector says "Component", try to change this to "composite + s". If this doesn't let you change it (it may not) then restart the system by unplugging the DC power cable for 30 seconds and re-connect it. I hope this helps.
