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

Re: My bose pmcii lcd remote control does not receive a...

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.....?

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.

I have a Bose Lifestyle 28/35 DVD system, and I haven't been able to find a code that works.

028,017,033,018,047 are the codes to check. If you wish to get more setup codes, three digits, four digits or five digit ones, check this link. Pull up older posts there. Setup code list and setup instructions to some popular model remote controls are given. Select the 'Timeslide' option from the drop-down list by the 'Sidebar' at the display window. It will make search easy.

My bose remote for my lifestyle48 only works from really close up? I was lead to believe they work from any room in the house... what's wrong?

The Bose Lifestyle 48 remote is RF device and is rated to work up to 65 feet (20m) away from the system (brick, steel, etc. construction will reduce this distance significantly however). The remote is discussed in two places of the installation manual.

The first speaks to the receiving antenna on page 16 in the form of a "Note" below section 4G. It states that both of the power cords (one between the VS2 and Media Center the second that supplies power to the VS2) need to be fully extended. Wrapping up excess cable will reduce the receiving range of the system to the remote transmitter.

The second location is at the bottom of page 29. Here, it offers the solution to poor remote performance to be an optional "remote extender" that looks like it connects to the rear of the system (RC connector?). The extender is available for an additional cost and you must contact Bose to obtain it. I can't find an image of it and Bose doesn't produce any information about it when searching their website.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rat emy reply - thanks.

Harmony 900 to control Bose Lifestyle problem.

Press the system button on the Lifestyle remote control. Move right to see a preview of the remote control. Press the down button to move into the submenus. Go down to IR Control. Select "on" System receives IR commands from another remote that has been taught to operate this system. Press exit and take a breath and try your Harmony remote. It should work. I had the same problem and this fixed it after hours of screwing around. Good Luck
