SOURCE: unable to get ps3 to play when hooked to receiver

First of All, HDMI is a High Definition Multimedia Interface and will transmit both Audio and Video at the same time all in one cable. Try using the HDMI cable to your Gaming INPUT on the receiver, or HDMI 1 setting.

Are you running a Bose Lifestyle system too? Or are you using Bose speakers only?

SOURCE: Can't record out from a digital input

It only passes the signal it see's. Digital for Digital and Analog for Analog. Try running a Standard analog RCA from your Cable box to the receiver then try and record. Hope this helps. If you still have an issue, post a comment and I can help you further.

SOURCE: dennon DRA 697ci with bose

I assume it used to work. You need to ensure the connections to and from the active equalizer are all proper. I would think you have it in the Pre-Main loop.

It sounds to me like you have an in/out reversal at the EQ or a dead Tape Monitor selected.

Or MUTING is selected on the DRA.

I have lost my sound from TV through the Bose Lifestyle 48 recently. All other sound sources work fine- DVD/CD, FM/AM.


Hello Sunny,

No TV model... came through with your
Bose LifeStyle home theater question...

I'm just going to mention that I have seen a couple of available configurations... depending on your signal source... BROADCAST, CABLE, SATELITE... (etc.)...

If it is Just your intention to source from the TV...
THERE (at the TV)...
It might be as simple as going into "menu" ... then move down to your "AUDIO" PROFILE.. and make sure your external speaker OPTION is showing "ON" (or "equipped")...

"
on your TV and making sure your PRIMARY volumes sources & destinations (Bose) volumes at acceptable levels... so as to not FRIGHTEN your neighborhood when the sound does come through)

No success ... comment me back with your TV signal source...
HMDI or optical outputs... (and does your AUDIO Work in STAND-ALONE on the TV... Now??)

If all else is working on the BOSE... I don't think we need to continue there...

Comment me back if you need... I'll be around!

Post comments... addendum

(I did say Menu... (twice))...

RESET , General:

**WARNING:
This operation will clear all of your customized settings.

V... depicts the volume down button on your remote
(immediately above the "menu" button).

With the set turned off...Stand in front of TV.

At the right side on the TV set... locate the power
button on the right side...

WHILE holding down the V (on the remote)
Turn on the TV POWER button on the TV.

(The TV will turn itself off, then back on again.)

Then ... V (symbol) Release the button.

**WARNING:
This operation will clear all of your customized settings...

I'll still be here... comment me back... if you need.

Hope it helps

I want to hook up my bose 321gsx system to my hdtv and a blue ray dvd player and be able to have suround sound out of the one im listening to, Do i have to hook up my old vcr also ?


No, flushing anything hi-def through a VCR is counter-prooductive and could lose the definition you paid for.

but some assumptions are necessary because you don't provide the details regarding the audio capabilities of your HDTV and BluRay player.

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.

hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.

We want to hook up an HDMI dvd player to the tv and have the sound come thru the Bose Lifestyle 38 (older model, did not come w/the HDMI converter that the 48 has or newer systems come with). We are not...


The best way to do this is to take your OPTICAL AUDIO OUT from your TV - (if it's a newer TV) - plug it in to the OPTICAL AUDIO IN on your BOSE system, then use the 'TV' source on your Lifestyle 38 to get the sound from. I have sound for X-Box, DVD player, Blue-Ray Player and Wii being pushed through the TV back to the BOSE and it sounds great. I don't have to change the source on the BOSE very much either - except when I listen to stored music!

Bose v30 lose audio at times/video ok/ with any source.


If you are using digital Audio connections, try to hook up analog audio connections as a backup to your digital (signal on digital can drop out on occasion. If that does not work, try updating your system(register by calling bose and you will receive update discs when they are available))
also bose's tech support is superb, so if you ask them what they think is wrong you will probably get a more precise answer than i am able to give you right now.

Analog output from digital input for Denon AVR 3803


On the Denon AVR-888 (and I presume others), you have to put the unit in "record" mode. This is covered under "Other Operations and Functions" in the manual. Here are the steps:
1. On the front of the unit, press the zone2/rec select button
2. Turn source select until "recout source" is displayed
3. Turn source select to choose the input source

Hope this helps.
