NO CLOSED CAPTION WITH BOSE RECEIVER HDMI

I AM USING A BOSE LIFESTYLE 20 SYSTEM WITH SHARP AQUOUS 65" 1080P TV. THE BOSE TO TV CABLE IS HDMI. I HAVE CONNECTED A SATELITE RECEIVER TO BOSE USING COMPOSIT CABLE. I DONOT GET CC WHILE WATCHING SATELITE PROGRAMMING. BOSE TELLS ME THAT HDMI DONOT PASS CC SIGNAL WHICH IS ANALOG. THEY SAY IT IS NOT THEIR PROBLEM AND ALL RECEIVERS WILL DO THE SAME THING. THAT SOUNDS DUMB. AS A TEST I TRIED USING COMPOSIT CABLE FROM SAT RECEIVER TO BOSE AND FROM BOSE TO TV AND THE CC WORKS BUT THE PICTURE SUCKS.
ANY ONE KNOWS WHAT IS GOING ON ? ANY WORK AROUND ?

You should be able to connect hdmi from apple tv to bose v30 for picture and sound. You can also run component video to bose and a hdmi out of bose to tv. Just make sure your running hdmi out of bose system to tv if your tv supports hdmi if not use component video cable. Another way which isn't as good of quality is to run fiber optic from apple tv to bose v30 and hdmi straight to tv.

check the voltage setting on the power supply that connects the power cord to the media center. Mine was set to 230V. Changed it to 115V and the video starting working.

I try to plug apple TV to my Bose sytem lifestyle 20. The apple TV is plugged by hdmi on my TV (hdmi2). The apple tv image is good but the sound is coming from my tv not from my bose system. i decided to...


You might want to try connecting the Apple TV to your TV using HDMI, then using the optical cable from your TV to your Bose system. In your TV's settings, there should be an Audio Output option. You'll want to turn off the TV speakers. Optical audio can be a little strange compared to traditional analog. If your cord is going bad, it could result in behavior like you described.

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr


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.

NO CLOSED CAPTION VIA BOSE LIFESTYLE 20 SYSTEM


CC is a function of your cable box in this case. TV's have the feature as well, but Bose is right about not all HDMI devices supporting CC through HDMI, especially converting from component to HDMI before hitting your TV. The solution: call your cable provider for this. Start at the source. The cables you use or the TV won't 'take away' closed caption if it's already there.

Lifestyle 38 and HD


I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.

Turn off closed caption on input(component) on Sharp Aquos 42"


I have a Sharp Aquos 46" and go a Comcast HD receiver as well, and had the same problem turning off the Closed Captioning. I order to turn it off you need to go into the box user setting by (starting w/ the cable box and tv on) pressing the power button for the cable box then the menu button for the cable box. This will open up the user settings menu. Just toggle CLOSED CAPTION to DISABLED.
