Question about Bose Cinemate Digital Home Theater System Speaker

2 Answers

Connecting my HDTV to my Bose Cinemate

I have a 42' Hitachi Plasma and a Toshiba HD DVD player. I also have a Comcast HD Tuner and an Xbox. I am trying to connect all of them to the Bose. The problem is that Bose only have the red/white jack for the Cinemate. Is there a way that I can connect all of them to run thru the Cinemate? The HD DVD and the cable box have HDMI connectors and the TV has two HDMI receivers. I would really like to run all of them thru the BOSE. Can this be done? Do I need a converter to run it thru the Bose? Thanks for your help with this problem.

    ya i have a 42" vizio hdtv and a phillips dvd player along with a cinmate bose system that i can't hook up to everything. I called for codes to hook up to one remote but there is no bose sound if i watch a dvd because it won't work on the dvd player even though they are all hooked up together. I spent many hours messing with the hook ups. Iam very bummed with Bose.

If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.

Plug your Bose into your Television audio out jacks. Run the rest through your cable box

Can't find remote for Bose Cinemate...is there any other way to turn it on without remote?


No, you need some sort of remote. Luckily this Bose uses IR for the remote and not RF. This means you might find a cheap universal remote that has a code for this. PC programmable remotes such as Logitech's Harmony, URC, and RTI remotes would definitely work.

If this was helpful, please rate!

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

Bose cine mate speakers


No it won't be like surround sound, but you'll have the next best thing: a nice, powerful, natural Hi-Fi sound. I have a 46 inch 1080p Sony connected to a Sony Blu-Ray and Bose Cinemate Speakers. No complicated rear speakers wiring, no awkward center speaker to hide. The only drawback is that Bose doesn't have (yet) a code to operate the Blu-ray player with the Cinemate remote control.

Hope this helps to make your decision.

Your TV may not support your HD channel signal. Check with HD DVD & non-HD DVD players to confirm.

Connection for tv cable to hitachi 42" plasma Tv


there is no cable slot. the monitor is not a receiver. it has no tuner in it. it will need a signal from a tuner box. and that must be fed to the tv with an hdmi cable or a dvid cable for hd to work. see your manual for further information on cables. see your cable supplier for information on hd boxes available in your area. if you do not buy hd service, you will not get an hd signal. so you will see little difference from a non hd device. your dvd player may have hd capabilities, but will also need the same cable to deliver true hd signal.
the good news is that its fixable by using the right equipment.
good luck
