Question about Bose PMCII 035323 LCD Remote Control

1 Answer

My bose pmcii lcd remote control does not receive a signal from a bose lifestyle 48 receiver. I made all the connections for the wireless system whose receiver is getting a stron signal from the transmitter. Nevertheless, my remote controle cannot get any signal from the receiver despite the fact that factory codes established for the lifestyle system receiver and the remote were matching for the house. Codes for the room extension are OK as well

Have you tried using the remote antenna supplied with the Bose system? This connects to the "Remote antenna" socket on the rear of the media centre and is made up of 2 parts: a shielded section (black in colour) that runs past any sources of interference - mains or signal cables, other electronics products - and the unshielded antenna (clear plastic covered copper wire) that must be fully extended vertically to act as an aerial. Position this away from sources of interference and as close to the second room as possible (Bose do a longer version, free of charge in some countries....)
The remotes only have a range of up to 20metres - this will drop the more walls it passes through and the thicker the walls. Any interference can affect this - radio transmitting equipment (WiFi, video sender, but especially products transmitting on the same frequency - 27MHz or 40MHz, e.g wirless thermostats or alarm systems....) or products with poorly shielded transformers. Experiment with swtiching off other electical equipment (including lights if they have a transformer - e.g. halogen spot lamps). If you identify a source, can you move it away.....?

I had Bose lifestyle V35, V20 try to link together. Bose link AL8 transmitter will not connect to receiver. both led is light solid green. Please help.

The commands for the Bose link system are actually going through the remote control system. In order to use the system you need not only a set of AL8 sender and receiver, but also a special remote control model RC48S2-40 these model numbers are slightly different for the US and for Europe. In addition you will need to activate the BoseLink connection through the system settings menu and you will need to tell the remote to which system it needs to talk. When you have done all that, there should not be any problem to "connect" the two systems. If this does not work, you may need some specialized help from a Bose specialist who understands this multi room set-up.

My Bose LifeStyle V20 remote died and I purchased the PMCII remote. It is supposed to be compatible with the MC1 but I cannot get it to work. How do I program the PMCII remote to work with the v20 sy

If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchased a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site Check this site too. If you see these sites by "MOSAIC" or "Magazine" view will make surf easier. Or type in the brand name of your device in the search box, and press "Enter".
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

Bose lifestyle one room doesn't connect and the remote says it won't connect to media center

Look in the instruction manual and make sure that you have set the codes correctly, the house code for the remote, as well as the room code for the second room. Also check the batteries in the remote control, especially when the room as far away from the main room, the batteries need to be full in order to reach the center. I assume we talk about a wired system? When this is a wireless connection to the second room, it may need a reset, unplug and re-plug the wireless adapter, there should be a pilot light in the back of the wireless adapter, which should be green. If that does not help, call Bose.

I have the Lifestyle V10 Home Theater System. It worked great in its original location in our family room. We recently relocated it to the living room and now the remote works erratically. I tried moving...

The Lifestyle V10 has a remote that uses RF code to communicate with the receiver. That means it uses Radio Frequency which could be a problem if you have too many wireless devices or radio's around. Check if you have any Cell phones, Cordless Phones , Wireless Routers etc which emit a Radio frequency which would cause it to be erratic as there would be a conflict in the signals.Try to move them away from the receiver.

Bose link AL8 connection problems

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.
