Question about Bose 3 2 1 GSX System
after moving my 321 Bose system to another part of the room, I now am unable to pick up dolby digital 5.0 on any channel that used to provide it in. I only get PCM. I am using a digital cable for sound and all the hookups seem ok. Any advice?

SOURCE: PCM 2.0
I have the Bose 3-2-1 GS Series II and initially could only get PCM audio. However, I now get Dolby Digital 2.0 and 5.1 audio through the following connections: 1) Connected a coaxial digital audio cable from Digital Audio Out (coaxial) on the HD cable box to CBL-SAT (D) on the Bose Media Center. 2) Connected a coaxial digital
audio cable from Digital Audio Out (coaxial) on my Toshiba DVD Recorder/Player to AUX (D) on the Bose Media Center. All video connections are from the cable box to the TV and from the Toshiba recorder/player to the TV. To receive Dolby Digital audio, I press either CBL-SAT or AUX on the Bose Remote Control. Good luck!

Call Bose and get the latest software for your system. This will solve the problem.
I had the exact same problem with my Lifestyle 48 system connected to a Dish Networks satellite box (Vip622). The sound would continually switch between 'Dolby Digital 2.0', 'Dolby Digital' and 'Dolby Digital 5.1'.
I called Bose Tech Support and they had me reset all of the components. This helped for a short time but it was still happening. They told me that the problem was with the Satellite box, since the Bose system just output what it was receiving and didn't do anything else. We also determined that my system software was quite old. They said that the software wouldn't make any difference, but I got them to send it out anyway.
Well, when the new software update arrived, I installed it on my Bose system and have not had any audio switching problems. So the Bose system software update seemed to fix the problem.
