Question about Bose (321GS) System

1 Answer

Where is the IR sensor on a Bose 3-2-1 Series II?

I'll be installing the Bose in a closet and controlling it with an IR repeater. Where is the IR sensor on the Bose? I've read elsewhere that it's dead center on the display but, of course, I don't see anything when I examine the front panel and don't want to stick the Xantech "mouse" all over in a futile search for the sensor, nor do I want to dismantle the Bose to find where the sensor is. Can I just stick the mouse emitter in the geometric center?

I believe I've found the IR sensor. By shining a flash light on the various parts of the normally opaque shield over the front of the Bose, I was able to spot what I believe to be the sensor on the extreme right end of the shield, vertically centered. Later today I hope to verify this by connecting everything and using the remote through the Xantech. If it turns out that I'm wrong, I'll post again.

How do i get my Bose Lifestyle remote to control


call bose tech support and register your lifestyle system with them, they in turn will start sending you update CD's those CD's may include the new IR databases that would help you find the right code. the other alternative is to call VIaSat and find out what brand's IR codes they are using( and in the IR menu on the bose try that brand's codes) A lot of manufacturers will use the codes from Motorola(worth a shot) the alternative option is to program a universal remote to control your bose, and all your equipment (if your equipment is hidden in a closet, get an RF remote, I program these for my clients all the time (for their bose systems))

Bose 3-2-1 IR sensor


The IR Receiver is on the Front behind the snap-off front cover. Note you have to take off the front shroud of the DVD player to get the front cover off. Also note the IR is very very delicate and the slighest wrong move will remder the board it connects to broken. If you can get the dvd shroud and front cover off - you'll see what looks like a small rubber dot in the center (top to bottom ) and (side to side). Good luck. Bose does NOT make these units so consumers can work on them. I only know how this works as I too and trying to get my unit repaired and I won't be held hostage by Bose.
