Question about Bose link AL8 wireless home-wide audio link - No Color System
So we bought a new bose system for our new house. We have a lifestyle V 35 system and two seperate rooms with speakers. The main room that is connected to the tv works fine, all the speakers work and respond. The other rooms, one which is about six feet from the lifestyle system and the AL8 does not connect. speakers are on, and the remote connects with the V35 system and can change the channel but will only say playing on audio 1. When i press party on the personal music centre three it says playing through audio 1&2 but after a couple of seconds it goes back to just one. How do I fix this?
Your v35 system needs to be programmed to work with the second zone wireless unit. Read the instruction manual how to do it, or let a Bose dealer set it up for you.

I had a similar problem, though intermittent, using my 48 with the AL8 and room-mate speakers. I kept getting a "no signal received from media centre" message on the remote in the second room.
Assuming that the batteries are ok and you don't have a hardware problem, the problem might be that the 48 is not picking up the signal from your remote control in your second room. The signal from your remote control is a radio signal that goes directly to the 48 - it doesn't communicate via the AL8 receiver. I think the orange light will only turn green once a signal is being transmitted from the transmitter unit plugged into your 48 media centre, and this won't start transmitting until the media centre gets a signal from the remote telling it to switch on.
The aerial for all the remote controls is contained in the power cable that links the 48 lifestyle unit to your VS-2 unit. Make sure that this is uncoiled and oriented vertically, as far away from other cables as possible.
If this doesn't work, you can get an antenna extender that plugs into the RC socket on the back of the lifestyle system. Again, orient this vertically. You can get these from Bose.
Is there anything in the wall that might be blocking the radio signal? Lots of metalwork for example?
If orienting the power cable from the VS-2 doesn't do the trick, I suggest that you go to a local Bose shop. (An actual Bose shop, not just an electrical or hifi store stocking Bose products). I explained my problem and the tech guy gave me an extender gratis (its basically just an FM aerial wire by the look of it). I installed it this morning and, so far, its seems to be working ok. As my unit is fairly new, he also offered to have the kit back in the shop to check it all out and, if that didn't work gave me Bose technical support number. He even offered, if all else failed, to send a guy out to my home to get it working - and I didn't even buy it from there!
Hope this helps.
