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.

    In error in my post, I have a Samsung HD-DVD-R

    Thanks, I have an digital audio input as well as an optical audio input on the Bose. I should probably use the optical for the DVD since I won't be using it as often. Also, is there a noticeable difference in HDMI cables that I can buy for $15 vs. the Monster cables at $125?

    Does a digital audio plug use a standard RCA audio cable?

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.

How do I hook up my HDMI Blu ray player to my theater system that doesnt have HDMI


You have a few options depending on the entire system.

Do you have the TV audio output connected to the home theater system? In that case, connect the Blu-ray player to an HDMI input on the TV. Then leave the home theater system set to the TV input, while the TV is set to the HDMI input for the Blu-ray player. This is the simplest method.

You could use an audio extractor/converter. Here's an example: https://www.amazon.com/J-Tech-Digital-Premium-Extractor-Converter/dp/B00BIQER0E . This will let you send the video signal to the TV (with a second HDMI cable) and have digital or analog audio sent to the home theater system.

If the TV doesn't have an available HDMI port and the home theater system only has analog audio inputs, you could use an HDMI to component video converter. You'd use something like this: https://www.bhphotovideo.com/c/product/770115-REG/KanexPro_HDRGBRL_HDMI_to_Component_Converter.html . (Do not use an HDMI to component cable. Those only work with some projectors.)

I hope this helps. Please add a comment with more details about your TV and audio system for more specific information.

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.
