I have sub woofer that works the same way. It is always on "idle" but when it detects an input it switches over to fully powered status and green light goes on. When I turn off receiver or whatever, it takes a tad for the unit to power down and go back into "idle" mode with a red light. .

    Sorry to hear u have a similar problem! I wonder if I could fit a subwoofer cable to plug it into another sound bar?

    The unit is working properly - my prior comment did not apparently make that perfectly clear. Just sit back and enjoy the sound - the unit is fine.!

SOURCE: need the Boston tvee sound bar repaired. Making

The sound bar system was not adequately tested before release and it's obvious. The sub seems to disconnect and reconnect randomly. This also happens when the bar is off. It makes a large bassy pop every so often when it shuts down. It's woken me up at night when it decided to turn on and off. Occasionally I have to power cycle the sub or even change the frequency in order to re-establish a wireless connection. All of this is an occasional occurrence and poses more of an annoyance than anything. It's crappy to have to say that "It works most of the time." It's too bad because the concept is fantastic, and now I question the quality of Boston Acoustics.

If you have your soundbar connected via HDMI, look for an option to disable the link between your TV and your soundbar (when this option is on on the devices connected toghether, when you turn off/on any of them automatically does to the same with all devices).

Programming time warner remote to boston tvee volume


I had just about given up on programming my Time Warner universal remote with my Boston Soundbar until a mental lightbulb came on. This is a two step process. Step 1: Program your Time Warner remote (I have CLIKR-5, instructions available for other models at timewarner.com) Using Pre-Programmed 3-digit Code method -Turn on soundbar - Press device button (I chose AUX) and OK/Select simultaneously until device button stays lit. - Point remote control toward the soundbar and enter code (447 for Boston Acoustics) - Press the device button again to store the code. The TW instructions say you should now be able to turn the device off to verify that it works, but this is not true for the soundbar. Hang in there with me. Step 2: Program your remote from the Boston Soundbar. - Press the power button and the volume up button simultaneously until the indicator light flashes orange. Here's where the instructions provided with the soundbar fail to explain how to do this. Each button is individually programmed into the TW remote. What you have done so far is enable the remote to accept the programming. - Volume Up: press the volume up button on the soundbar while it is flashing, the light should become steadily orange. - While holding the remote steady about a foot away from the soundbar, slowly press the volume up button on the TW remote four times. The orange light should flicker each time you do, turning green when completed. - Volume Down, Mute, Power: repeat the steps for Volume Up, except press the button on the soundbar you wish program to the TW remote while the soundbar is flashing orange. It should become steady before you press the corresponding button on the TW remote. Good luck, I hope this helps. -Deidre.

because your tv output is not of suffieient power to drive the soundbar. The soundbar needs to be hooked up to an amplifier that is being fed by your tv line out (or earphone output)

It is not latching on to the soundbar transmitter. Is the locked light on the device turning on.
Wireless devices are sometimes known to drift. Is the sub silent when the soundbar power is off ?. Even then if its making this sound, the subwoofer amplifier is oscillating at very low frequency. You will need professional help and needs to be repaired.
