Question about Bose Lifestyle 38 DVD Home Entertainment System System

1 Answer

Pretty much the same problem

I have my ps3 , a toshiba hd dvd player, and our verizon fios cable all connected to my 56 inch sony bravia lcd through hdmi. i noticed that none of the components were outputting full surround so i went out and bought an optical audio cable. i connected the cable from the optical out slot in the tv to the optical in slot on the bose lifestyle dvd. once i went and changed the settings on the bose to optical audio i noticed that pcm 2.0 came up on the display. it has surround and it sounds pretty good but i am wondering if dolby digital 5.1 sounds alot better? i have tried everything and cant get it to output on dolby digital. any suggestions on how i can get the bose to output dd 5.1? i am not real technoligically advanced so if you could break it down for me in laymens terms i would greatly appreciate it.

I have the same system. I have a Lifestyle and a Sony TV with a Samsung Blueray player. I also have an X-box 360, plus my pc with all my CDs (I-tunes) plays through my bose. Do this:

1. Use the optical cable for the blueray player to the Bose (AUX).
2. Use a digital audio cable from the cable box (either black or orange output) to the Bose CBL-SAT digital input. (it's a single audio cable)
3. For my PC, I'm using a digital cable from the pc to the Bose. I'm using the TV output because it's empty.
4. For my x-box (which I'm not too happy about) I'm using regular red-white audio cables from Bose TV input directly to the TV audio out. (You can play all of the above through this channel, but don't).

I figured the most important high quality sound should come from the blueray player and from watching regular cable tv. For picture, you should be using all HDMI connections.

Hope this helps.

Your PS3 working doesn't mean a thing for the cable unless you are using that cable for your PS3. I would bet you have a bad HDMI. They are pretty sensitive to being bent. Try replacing that first. The other thing to check is to first make sure you have the proper input selected on the TV for where you have the HDMI plugged into on your TV.

Now have verizon Fios and cannot get DVD player to play


Check the connection cable. If the Verizon box and the DVD player are connecting to the same TV input, ensure that the Verizon fios box is connecting to DVD input, and DVD output is connecting to TV.

If you connect DVD out to Verizon box input, and then TV , you will have to turn off the receiver box to see DVD.

If you use only one TV Input connect Verizon output to DVD input and DVD out to TV.

If instead you use separate inputs on TV, then try using the source/select input button on TV remote, and try different cables.

Regards.

Sony 52" Bravia LCD will drop picture and sound for 1-2 seconds


the only thing that i can think of is that the cables and connections are bad but if that is not the case it may be the internal components of the tv. my guess is that the tv was dropped or jumbled around while transported and what happened was internal components were broken or just mixed up so go to the retailer and get a refund or a new tv. hope this helps

Toshiba HDTV + SONY PLAYSTATION 3 + SONY Home Theatre DAVHDX265


I have looked up the infomation on your TV I noticed that your TV has two HDMI input plugs. Since your SONY BRAVIA is hooked up to one port, you need to buy another HDMI cable for your PS3. On your tv remote you should have an option to switch from video 1 to video 2 so then you can switch from the SONY BRAVIA to the PS3 the problem is you will only hear your PS3 Sound from you TV. If you want to hear your PS3 sound from your SONY BRAVIA you need to buy an optical cable (also called TOSLINK) to connect from your PS3 to the SONY BRAVIA.

Hope that helps!
