Hi, have you tried going to the system settings menu adn program your 3rd party products htrough there? You may try varied IR code settings for your electronics from there and one of those codes should work atleast for your system. There may be some codes you will get to use but does not have all the funcitons so you need to be patient to try them all.

As per the Blue-Ray DVD, the remote code might still not be embedded on the IR controller chip that is installed in your Lifesytle (after you have tried all the codes and still none works). Bose does release regular firmware updates via their user mailer (if you have registered your product online) or you may passby any of the Bose service center and request them to provide you with the update disc specific to your system version (look underneath the DVD player and the bass module they should indicate AV-- and PS-- models).

Glad to be of service...

Hi Candy,

On the back of your satellite box you will see a pair of Audio Out RCA jacks. One will be red, one will be white.

Simply run an RCA cable pair to the 'AUX' jacks on the rear of the BOSE.
That's it!!

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.

Check your video output settings in the menu. If you are using a composite video output and do not have the system sut up for it, you will get a B&W picture. Check your menu settings.

No surround sound


It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

Lifestyle 12 speaks - new HDTV


mount to wall, brackets available to purcahse on loads of on line sites. and from bose direct cost 5 dolurs to 50 dollars eack depending how fancy you want to be.
would recomment also distancing the left right satellites as you will be amazed how much improvement in sound is gained from a well defined centre channel.

also if you want to be really smart. its really not necessary to see the centre satelliet and it could simply sit of the stand behind the tv. with no problem. plus you could use the tv audio input to make the tv as a centre channel. you would be surprised how well that works. make sure you disable the tvs steroe function or your surround sound will not sound too surround....

finally if you have lifestyle series II make sure you conect the 5.1 input to the bass box to your tv. and get rid of the bose cd player , put it out of sight, and loose the remote. will work even better than it did before !
