Yes: Connect them to the receiver jacks labeled "line out" if it has them.. Or if your receiver has two sets of jacks called "Preamp Out" and "Power Amp In", you can connect the Bose system to the "Preamp Out" jacks. But of course, then you can't use the receiver's power amplifier or any speakers connected to the receiver's speaker outputs, unless you do some creative wiring outside the unit. You can do it using standard RCA Y-adaptors if you have the "Pre Out/Power In" jacks. If you have Line Out jacks on the receiver, you can use both the Bose and your receiver speakers at the same time, or separately.

    I simply plugged in my bose cinemate in Tape 2 MONITOR/rec connections on my Kenwood receiver (KR-A4070).
    It works like a charm. still have to use my BOSE remote to control volume.

Bose cinematic autoshut off


The device which sends Audio to Bose causing this issue. I have my Bose Cinemate connected to TV and it will remain until I switch off Bose Interface via remote (Even TV is switched off).

Overheating cause this issue, so keep the Cinemate to have some space to cool.

No volume cinemate gs seris ii


OK, so your Bose remote is set up for your TV. That's good. You still have to connect some kind of audio output from the TV and connect it to one of the inputs on the Bose. Then you must select the input button on the Bose remote that you connected the TV to. For more information, please visit my website at audioserviceclinic.com. Thank you.

The Panasonic TV I have only has a digital audio out. How do I make it work with the cinemate plug system?


Whatever componenets you have, satellite receiver, DVD Bluray, etc. should be hooked to tv for both audio and video, referrably by HDMI, then you can hook you digital optical out from tv to digital in on your Bose system. If you have component in to tv you can use that to but, you will ahve to provide audio tp tv through Ditgital in or composite cables(red, white, RCA)

How to connect a bose cinemate to a panasonic tv digital audio out cable is not red and white what do i need


Get the best audio for whatever the TV is viewing from the same source (cable/dvd/blu-ray/sat). They will all have at least analog RCA audio output. The TV is not a primary source of audio in these cases.

The cinemate is not really intended for complex installations.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

Trying to connect to LG 60 inch plasma. no output


Hi.


You need to connect the Bose using the Optical Audio output from TV to Bose main unit (kind of square shaped connector), and not using the RCA inputs on TV.


The picture below is an LG back panel, the optical audio connector is at the lower side of I/O connections at the back of TV, on some model the location of connector may be different.

You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

Connecting my HDTV to my Bose Cinemate


If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.
