Connect the 360 and wii to the tv. Then connect the tv to the 321 using analog coaxials (red/white) or digital optical through the tv's audio out ports in the back. Then set the 321 to TV and you should be all set. Sound may not be quite as dynamic as if you went straight from the gaming systems to the 321, but should still work well.

The Lifestyle 38 has no HDMI output. It all depends on what inputs your TV has, which cable set up would be the best for you. Assuming that your TV has an SVideo input, you indeed can use the SVideo output of the Bose system, to get the DVD picture on your TV. However you will need to connect the audio output of the TV to the TV input of the LS 38 to get the TV sound to play over your LS 38. In case you don't have an SVideo connection on your TV, you can use the composite output of the Bose system and connect it to the video input of your TV (yellow in and outputs)

Connecting


I think the Bose should be connected to the TV first, and then input the ps3 into the TV. The TV is what is going to handle the crossing over.

I am trying to hook by Bose 123 to my Panasonic Vestra 3d tv. I have the cable connected but I am not getting anything


To view a DVD in the Bose system on the TV, connect an HDMI cable (or composite-Yellow, Red, White) to the back of the Bose system (output) and the other end to the input on the back of the TV.

If you have a cable box or satellite and want to get the audio on the Bose system, connect an RCA (white and red) cable to the back of the Bose system (input) and the output on the back of the cable box/TV/satellite.

Switch channels on Bose as needed. Good luck!

Have a Bose 3-2-1 Series III. When I put in a DVD, I get sound through the Bose but no picture on my Pioneer TV. This is the second time it has happened. The first time it, we managed to get it going...


Here are 3 things to try and an if all else fails at the end.

1) Make sure the TV is set to the correct Video Input to see the video from DVDs on the Bose system.
• Make sure a DVD is in the disc tray.
• If the TV is connected to the media center using the HDMI cable:
Switch from one Video Input to another and then back to the original input.

2) Turn everything off, then:
Turn on the TV and set the TV Video Input for the Bose system video.
Turn on the Bose system and press DVD.

3) Turn off both the TV and the Bose system and then:
Unplug the HDMI cable from both ends.
Disconnect the power cables from both your TV and the Bose 321 system.
Re-connect power to the TV and to the Bose 321 system.
When the Bose 321 system startup message disappears from the display,
re-connect the HDMI cable to the TV then Bose 321 system.
Turn on the TV first, then turn on the Bose 321 system.

If all the above fail then disconnect the HDMI cable that connects the TV to the Bose 321 system and reconnect the two using a Component cable, an S-Video cable, or the Composite cable provided with the system.


Please leave feedback

When listening to bose 321 system what should the volume of the tv be set at?


OFF. Unless the TV is the original source of what you're watching (antenna). Otherwise, your programming is probably coming from a cable/sat box with all the digital audio goodies, right?

If your TV has a menu for setting the volume out its RCA connections I would recommend you set it to whatever resembles FIXED, so it's volume control won't kill the stereo analog audio going out to the Bose. Then you can turn it off at the TV and listen through the Bose.

For the best multichannel audio you should get it digitally from the original source you're watching on the TV, but NOT from the TV itself.

No audio


I beleive that you have connected the HDMI cable to the TV and that you have connected audio out from the TV to the bose system.(I'm assuming that the Bose does not have HDMI connections) it won't work you will have to connect the Digital Fiber Optic out of the TV to the Bose or Direcly from the PS3 to the Bose. Now if you connect it direclly from the PS3 to the Bose you will have to change the audio settings on the PS3 in Audio out from HDMI to Digital Fiber Optic.

Bose 3-2-1 - trouble connecting to Samsung 26" LCD monitor


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.

Hook up


The Bose GS can only support component video set-up for the best video definition. This video connection set-up uses three RCA cables to transfer the video signal from an output device (the Bose GS) to an input device (Your TV).

Check if the back of your GS system has a set of video out RCA ports that are titled "Comp Out". You TV should then have a "Comp In" video input RCA ports you can connect to.

Hope this helps.
