The Bose VS-2 is not fully functional with HDMI. The screens repeatedly go black while you are just sitting there. Tech support tells you all the ways to 're-handshake' the HDMI sources, but it does not fix the problem. You either have to change the Bose output resolution to a lower value and if that works change it back to your default 1080p setting. If not, you have to shutdown all component and the BOSE system. Unplug the Bose for 30 sec, forcing a H/W reset. Then restart each component. Once they are all up, the start the Bose.

I have been met with 50/50 success on this. In the space of a 4 hour period I had to do this 5 times.

All Bose suggests is go to the Component Video cable. The offer no solution, and just blame HDMI. This is totally false. I have another system, not Bose where the HDMI works fine.

BTW, Bose apparently does not make use of the audio going across HDMI. You still have to hook up either optical, digital coax or analog RCA cables to get audio from your sources.

Volume is blocked ("hotel only"). How can I


I found this in another Fixya entry... "-Press Enter and On/Off on the media center , on standby mode -now hold the enter button pressed and start pressing the On/Off button. You should see a setting display on the player. The setting on display should change from video....till...Hotel Control -ON - on that position, press the Volume 'minus' button on the media center. It should change to Hotel Control - Off." My next suggestion would have been to call Bose and ask them why things like this aren't documented anywhere. 1-800-999-2673 Sales support: Mon. - Sun., 7 AM - 2 AM ET Technical support: Mon. - Fri., 8:30 AM - 9 PM ET Sat., 9 AM - 6 PM

REALLY - call them and complain that this is NOT documented online.

Bose lifestyle 38 remote wont work i'm trying to reset the house code but "all off" followed by "enter" or follwed by"stored " is not working


I have a Bose Lifestyle 38 and the remote control stopped working effectively. I've tried several sets of fresh batteries, made sure that the electrical cord is not coiled up, and have checked the copper coil antenna within the remote to make sure it is connected. The remote does not make any noise or rattle when shaken. It will only work when held within a foot or two of the receiver, and even then often takes several button pushes to get a response. I've verified that the house code on the remote and the receiver are the same. Any ideas?

I have an optical cord plugged into my bose system but when i change it to aux it doesnt work


Using the remote control, and the on-screen settings menu, you must set OPTICAL as your AUX input. After this is done, Your Bose Lifestyle system will recognize the signal on the optical input.

Not an Audio CD/Format Unsupported


Clean the CD and try again. Also, if DVD displays "not supported", call Bose and ask to recieve an update disc. These updates are released every 6 months. Document your remote control settings before loading the update as they may be erased by the update and will require re-entering settings after the update.

No color when playing DVD


your player is set to the wrong format ie either ntsc if your in europe or pal if your in america, you need to go to the setup and make sure the dvd setup is for your region. pal in europe,ntsc in america..most dvd players automatically switch.but sometimes people change the settings without knowing.
