Hi all, i have two bose systems in the same house and they keep overlaping each other. Is there a way I can configure each of the Bose remote controls to control only one of the system each? I have a lifestyle 30 and a lifestyle 5. One is in my room and the other in the Family room. There are some switches in the back but I haven't been able to figure out how to do it and I can't find any information. Thanks for looking at my issue

BOSE Uses different type of protocol in their remote . You will not be able to program any remote for your bose system. So try to buy its original remote.
If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Pull up older posts. http://electro-medical.blogspot.com/
The Bose Wave Radio and Wave Music System use different IR codes. It is no other reason other than Bose made the remotes incompatible. This is often done to prevent interferance with systems that may be close to each other.
If you have other (Universal) remotes in your home try programming one of them to operate your Bose.I have a different Bose system for my TV and can operate the on/off and volume from my universal remote. The code I use is 440, I show another code of 302 that may work.
I got my bose remote to work when I did a system update on the remote. Turn the TV on. Select the TV video input that connects the system. On the control console, press and hold setup until the system information screen displays. line 5 will display the currently installed console software version. on the remote press any button. Line 10 will display the currently installed remote software version. Do a bose system update. On the control console press setup. on the remote control, press the down arrow until update is highlighted and press ok. make sure yes is highlighed and press ok. on the control console plug a clean usb drive into the usb port.when prompted, remove the usb drive and connect it to a computer. open the drive and double click on the download_launcher file, which should bring you to an update page on bose.com. Once complete, put it back in the control console. When the update is complete remove the usb.
Have you tried using the remote antenna supplied with the Bose system? This connects to the "Remote antenna" socket on the rear of the media centre and is made up of 2 parts: a shielded section (black in colour) that runs past any sources of interference - mains or signal cables, other electronics products - and the unshielded antenna (clear plastic covered copper wire) that must be fully extended vertically to act as an aerial. Position this away from sources of interference and as close to the second room as possible (Bose do a longer version, free of charge in some countries....)
The remotes only have a range of up to 20metres - this will drop the more walls it passes through and the thicker the walls. Any interference can affect this - radio transmitting equipment (WiFi, video sender, but especially products transmitting on the same frequency - 27MHz or 40MHz, e.g wirless thermostats or alarm systems....) or products with poorly shielded transformers. Experiment with swtiching off other electical equipment (including lights if they have a transformer - e.g. halogen spot lamps). If you identify a source, can you move it away.....?
