Question about Bose Lifestyle 28 System

1 Answer

I am trying to figure out how to connect my blu ray and HDTV to my Bose lifestyle 28 and also have a HD cable box. The Lifestyle 28 has no HDMI inputs and was purchsed in early 2002. I believe it is a type 1. It does have one optical in and one optical out.

    My TV, Samsung, built in sound is pretty poor. Is it possbile to just run all audio, cable box and Blu Ray through the Bose system and then plug both HDMI connections into the TV? That way I would use the Bose system as the sound for both. Does the HDMI carry sound too or just the digital picture?

Only one can be digital. TV preferably since you probably watch more tv than dvds. use the analog output from the bluray to the analog in on the lifestyle 28 and optical for TV

    Yes, HDMI carries both audio and video in digital and HD. You can connect it the way you want which will give you the option of listening to the TV speakers only in all modes. What you will have to remember is that when you are using the Bose system to turn down the TV speakers, it can really mess up the way surround sounds. Hope this helps

My HDTV does not have RCA audio out option to connect to my Bose Lifestyle 12 surround system. Can I connect the Directv box directly to the lifestyle12 system to get surround for the TV? I would do...


Just make sure that you are using compatible connectors and that your signals are compatible. Ie. analog out to analog audio input, digital audio to digital audio input.

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.

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.

Connecting lifestyle 27/38 to psp3


Your Bose system doesn't lead sound trough hdmi.
You must connect the optical cable with your lifestyle.
Change the sound connectionsettings in the menu of your ps3.

You also need to assgn the optical connection in the setup menu of the lifesyle. e.g. optical=aux.

Lifestyle 38 and HD


I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.

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.
