Question about Bose Lifestyle 20 System
The audio goes on and off, often with electronic "popping" noises. I thought it may be the cable connecting the bass module to the console because when I jiggle the connection at the console it appears to have an effect. But same problem after replacing the cable. Can anyone help me?

Just got off phone with Bose support with this very problem during install of a VS-2 software updtae to an older LS48 system. (Bose support personnel were very helpful on phone - and walked me through procedure to solve). I presume you unplugged and replugged power supply with no resolution. In that case, unplug power supply, wait 30 seconds and while holding down the "open/close button" and the "store" button (on media center) plug the power supply back in. Continue holding until the "Bose Lifestyle" message disappears. I presume this puts the system into a diagnostic mode, as the next steps in my case were to press and hold the "erase" button while scrolling through a menu of options using the "volume up" button. I believe it was the third "volume up" press that brought me to "FLASH" on the system screen. At that point I was told to release the "erase" button and press the enter button. The system rebooted and my VS-2 install went smoothly after that.
I'd recomend calling Bose support (800-905-2138) since your lockup occured during a CD load vs a software update (just to be on the safe side) - I was talking to a live tech support person in less than 15 seconds... a pleasant surprise.

The problem turned out to be the TV itself. Somehow all the a/v and component cable inputs on the back of the TV got disabled. After finding then consulting the TV manual online (the TV is about 8 years old), we found there was a way to reset the TV to its original factory settings. Voila, the a/v and component cable inputs were enabled again, and everything worked correctly afterwards.

Your Bose system doesn't lead sound trough hdmi.
You must connect the optical cable with your lifestyle.
Change the sound connectionsettings in the menu of your ps3.
You also need to assgn the optical connection in the setup menu of the lifesyle. e.g. optical=aux.

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.
