Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System

1 Answer

Bose 3-2-1 When I change channels on my cable box I lose the volume (from the bose). I have to either turn the bose on/off or wait for it to resume and it takes a few seconds. It is very annoying. I checked all my connections and called Bose - they say it's a cable problem - but I don't believe that. My Bose now shows 1+1 sometimes instead of 2.0. When the unit was new I never had that problem. It's about 2 yrs old now.

Get the free upgrade CD from BOSE and it will solve most of the problems when the program is loaded.
Its not a cable problem...tinkering with the cables will make the connections loose.

Change from 2.0 to 5.0


Sounds like your Cable box audio settings are outputting two channels (stereo) instead of five channels (surround). It could be on an automatic setting, meaning whatever the digital audio stream coming from the TV channel is, your Bose system will play audio in that config. Hence why it changed from 5.0 to 2.0.
Go into your Cable box audio settings and change the output to Dolby Digital (or similar). You will also need to be connected via a digital optical cable from your cable box to your Bose 321 to output true digital audio.
If you post the make and model of your cable box I might be able to give you more direct instructions on how to do this if your still having trouble.

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!

The sound/volume is not working properly on our Bose 321 system...i.e., whereas, a "normal" volume at (let's say) 35-40 is way loud, but now have to turn volume up to 100 (maximum) to be able to...


Make sure the device it is connected to has its audio properties setup correctly. If this is a cable or satellite box, most of them have a volume output level. Changing this will change overall volume.

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.

Try unplugging both the main console (lifestyle) as well as the power to the vs-2. (IT's the black cord). You have to wait 30 - 60s. This worked for me after also making sure the video was set to "NTSC Progressive" (you can do that by turning the bose off, holding down enter, and then pressing store twice till you get to "video". Then use the volume arrows to select NTSC Progressive.)

If your remote worked everything for a few weeks and then quit, and you are sure the codes are correct, take the remote back under the 1 year replacement warranty and exchange it. It is defective.

VOLUME ISSUE


I had my older bose 321 hooked up through vcr and sounded great. Then hooked it up through directv receiver and sounded better. then switched from direct to comcast and hooked the bose up throught the comcast hd receiver and the volume is aweful. same deal, have to crank it up high. Since the stereo built into the tv sounds so much better I disconnected the bose and am going to sell it.

PCM 2.0


I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable box..my choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.

No sound from my TV!! HELP!!


assume its a bose system 12 (non digital or digital ?)
if you clarify the model of both tv and bose system i will tell you precisely how to connect tv to bose system,


but i must assume first that your cable box is connected to your tv via a scart cable , you must remove sound function from the cable and plug directly into cd5 unit on either auxillary or video input , then turn cd5 unit to that channel to play sound and use bose reomte to control volume (ok)
i would doubt thatthe TV has a audio output, many dont.... also it may be necessary to buy a scart to RCA cable at your local electronics shop or supermarket to completet he task at hand.

if however you are digital.....
make sure you are connectiong bose digital input to a digital (dolby 5.1 compatible) sound source.

sorry if you think i have over simplified the problem !

respect
