Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System

1 Answer

Home Theater install

I am converting several of my components to HD and need some assistance on hooking up the system. I have a Samsung 50" Plasma, Samsung HD-DVR, SA Digital HD DVR and a Bose Lifestyle 28 system. Since the Bose won't accept HDMI, I only want to use it for audio. Can I use HDMI on the cablebox and DVD and still use Digital Audio from the Bose at the same time. I am looking at running the cable into the Cable Box and running HDMI to the TV and Digital Audio out to the Bose. For the DVD, I will use HDMI to the TV and Digital Audio to the Bose. I will then use Digital Audio from the Bose to the TV. Does that make sense or can someone out there clue me in on what I should use. My objective is to maximize the video through HDMI and Digital Audio from the Bose.

Re: Home Theater install

Yes sounds about right what you are doing as long as you have 2 digital audio 'inputs' on your Bose to get the audio from the dvd player and cable box. Apart from your last part "I will then use Digital Audio from the Bose to the TV." The tv will only downrate the audio to two channel stereo, so its not worth puting audio through the tv as you only get stereo anyway, so might as well let the tvs speakers power it out themselves.

I have a RCA Home Theater System RT2380BK I have the speakers wired but i want to hook it up to my dish network when I'm watching movies.Can u help me?

The dish network reciever should have audio and video out on the back, If its a HD device it should also have COAX out (hd audio) get the cables for audio and feed the into a input on the back of your home theater system, there should be several inputs, usually labled like video 1 video 2, tape deck etc etc. the audio in are red and white or red and black usually, the coax connector is orange, and you only need one cable to hook that up. If you have HD audio on the dish network that will sound best in your home theatere system

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.

Need to connect some samsung audio/video components

I'm guessing that you would like all your components to play audio through the HTZ320. In order to get audio from all these components you will need a digital optical cable from the tv optical out to the HTZ320 optical input. And some composit audio cables (red and white) from tv audio out to the HTZ320 aux input. The video and audio from the dish box, bluray, and the vcr are all going to have to go through the tv first and then to the HTZ320. Use HDMI cables to connect the dish box and the bluray to the tv inputs and composit cables (red white and yellow) from the vcr output to the tv input. If you can give the exact model of the tv I can help you sort things out further. I hope this helps you.

Flashing / ghosting with Bose Lifestyle V30

I recommend you switch from using HDMI cables to using component (R/G/B RCA-style) cables. HD picture is superior through component cabling, and solves several HD picture issues. Component cabling from your devices should eliminate your problems.

I hope that helps.
