Bose Remote not linking to Samsung HDTV

I have the Bose Remote for the Lifestyle 48 system. I recently purchased a Samsung LCD HDTV and have tried all the 'Samsung Codes' in the BOSE system and none of them will learn the TV. My Bose remote works with all my other components, (Cable Box, Blue Ray, etc...) just not linking to TV.

    Same issue as described above. I purchased a Samsung 52" LCD TV model LN52A650A1FXZA and a Bose Lifestyle 28 Series III surround sound system. I have tried all of the codes in the Bose menu for the Bose remote to "turn off and turn on" the TV. None of them work. Any advice out there from techs?

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.

I have a Bose Lifestyle 28/35 DVD system, and I haven't been able to find a code that works.


028,017,033,018,047 are the codes to check. If you wish to get more setup codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

My bose remote for my lifestyle48 only works from really close up? I was lead to believe they work from any room in the house... what's wrong?


The Bose Lifestyle 48 remote is RF device and is rated to work up to 65 feet (20m) away from the system (brick, steel, etc. construction will reduce this distance significantly however). The remote is discussed in two places of the installation manual.

The first speaks to the receiving antenna on page 16 in the form of a "Note" below section 4G. It states that both of the power cords (one between the VS2 and Media Center the second that supplies power to the VS2) need to be fully extended. Wrapping up excess cable will reduce the receiving range of the system to the remote transmitter.

The second location is at the bottom of page 29. Here, it offers the solution to poor remote performance to be an optional "remote extender" that looks like it connects to the rear of the system (RC connector?). The extender is available for an additional cost and you must contact Bose to obtain it. I can't find an image of it and Bose doesn't produce any information about it when searching their website.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rat emy reply - thanks.

My Bose remote control RC28TI-27 (for a Bose Lifestyle 48 system) has a heavy rattle in the top portion inside of it. I want to disassemble it and see if it is an easy fix. How do I get it to split apart...


Did you find a solution? I unscrewed the screw under the battery compartment lid near the rear end of the remote. The rattle is a broken radio frequency antenna. A replacement for this ancient remote is $89 plus shipping and handling. Supposedly the Bose systems can also be programmed with some universal remotes without rf antennae.

Harmony 900 to control Bose Lifestyle problem.


Press the system button on the Lifestyle remote control. Move right to see a preview of the remote control. Press the down button to move into the submenus. Go down to IR Control. Select "on" System receives IR commands from another remote that has been taught to operate this system. Press exit and take a breath and try your Harmony remote. It should work. I had the same problem and this fixed it after hours of screwing around. Good Luck

My bose pmcii lcd remote control does not receive a signal from a bose lifestyle 48 receiver. I made all the connections for the wireless system whose receiver is getting a stron signal from the...


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.....?
