    My BA TVEE Model Two has worked reliably for some months. It suddenly stopped working. Thinking it had lost its connection with the remote I attempted to reprogram, then de-program and reprogram, neither worked. I cannot seem to re-establish the connection, even though it was easy in the initial set-up.

SOURCE: Not enough IR range to use remote

Get yourself a very thin and small screwdriver. The type that comes in the eyeglass repair kits. Remove the cloth/plastic grill from the front of the sound bar. Locate the IR sensor in the center of the bar. Pry the dark red filter off the IR sensor and leave it off.

Problem solved, greatly increases range. I have read that there is a clear replacement cover you can buy but whats the point?

Are you using another remote for the guide? Like the cable box remote? If that is the case then the remote could be sending a signal to the cable box that is the same as the signal used to adjust the volume on the television.

Red status light will not go off or change on Boston A TVee model 2 soundbar.


I am also having the same problem. It was working fine until we moved. Plugged it in at the new house and nothing but a red light. Sub is green though.

Have a BA TVee 25 Soundbar. Only able to program Volume Up on my remote. Cannot program Volume Down or Mute. Nothing happens except to turn the Soundbar off and on. Don't tell me to follow...


I had this same problem and it was due to their instructions which do not adequately explain the setup procedure.

On my own, I was successful in programming volume up but that was all. I assumed that for volume down I would hold the power button and the VOLUME DOWN button and wait for the flashing light just as I had for volume up. Problem is, you never get a flashing light.

Today, I spoke with a rep from Boston Acoustics who patiently explained that step one of the instructions has to be done the same way each time as it is the step that puts the soundbar into programming mode.

It is only at step 2 that things change.

The solution is to hold the power button and the Volume Up button every time in order to get the system into programming mode. Once the light is flashing, in order to program Volume Down, you then hold the Volume Down button until the light goes solid. Once the light goes solid, then press the volume down button on your remote 4 times slowly. Works like a charm.

Works the same way to program the mute button. Follow step one to get the unit in programming mode. Once the light is flashing, hold down only the mute button until the light goes solid. When the light goes solid, press the mute button slowly 4 times.


OBTW, this was programmed with a Logitech Harmony 650 remote unit.

Can program up volume but not down or mute


To program the down button, after step 1 of the programing sequence, you must press the down button of the speaker system and then press the down button on the remote four times. This goes for the other buttons (i.e. after step 1 of the programing sequence, press the mute button on the speaker system and then press the mute button on the remote four times).This is a weak point in the programing instructions.

All static from the sound bar. adjustments don't help. tried different cables - that didn't help. System is not usable at this time.


The manual...

http://www.retrevo.com/search?q=Boston+Acoustics+TVee+Model+Two

Page 7

Distorted sound from the Soundbar.

Change the Trim Level switch setting to a higher number.
Check the signal source to be sure the distortion is not originating there. <<<<<<<<<

The woofer seems to have interference with its wireless signal.

Try changing settings of the Wireless ID switches on both the soundbar and bass unit. <<<<<<<<
The bass unit could be too far from the soundbar to get a good signal. Try moving it closer.

What is the source device that results in static? How is it connected?
