Question about Bose Cinemate Digital Home Theater System Speaker
Trying to connect new cinemate system to hitachi plasma (p42h401) with comcast digital dvr box. using hdmi cable to connect cable box to tv. internal speakers turned off. bose plugged into monitor out (r/w) connections on tv as per instructions. no sound. if I plug Bose into audio in on cable box, I get output on Bose, but volume level is somewhat limited. with connection through cable box, though, I have to use tv speakers to hear dvd player (connected to tv using component & audio cables. what am I doing wrong?
maybe you're doing something wrong? Not familiar with how it hooks up (RCA from adio out behind tv to the input of the cinemate?) You can always contact bose directly as they seem to be good as far as customer service. I would also suggest thoroughly reading the instruction manual a few times. And if all else fails, then return it.

how many audio input does your cinemate have? in case you only have one, you need an audio video switcher. a sample picture of what you need is on this link > http://electronicsusa.com/svs14.html find what you need, that is just for you to see what its look like. another thing is check you dvd if it has a line input - meaning it allows you to connect another source into your dvd such as vhs, cd, mp3. for for audio video - you need 3 wires (video/audio left-right), for stereo audio - 2 wires (left/right connection). some dvd player call it as line1 and line2 inputs. if you have it then you should be ok. 3rd approach, a simple audio mixer with minimum 3 inputs and 1 ouput is enough. note: last thing, check your connection interface for connection compatibility if you plan to buy audio video switcher or audio mixer. hope this help. regards, cebuwano

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.

You are right I checked the Manual online and there is no Optical in. The other tech was right in suggesting that, Cause it would be the next best thing to HDMI. It only has 1 Analog Audio in, So what I would Recommend is Plugging in all of your Devices to your TV and then 1 Audio cable from your TV to The Bose input. Although this will NOT transfer Digital Audio to Analog Audio. This means if you are going in HDMI then the Audio would most likely NOT transfer to the Bose. In this case you would have to hook up a set of Audio cables (Red and White) From the Blu-Ray to the Bose along with the HDMI. This will leave you with only Audio from the Blu-ray through the Bose. To go a step further you can purchase an Audio Splitter (or Video) then plug your Devices into the Splitter and then 1 cable out to the Bose and just Switch the Input along with the TV. Good Luck!

SOURCE: bose cinemate no sound
Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.

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
