Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.

The speakers work wonderful ona Laptop DVD, but NOT on a TV


When you hook them up to the television make sure they are connected to the FIXED OUTPUT. Otherwise you will have to turn the tv up to send a signal to the speakers.

There may be a setting in the audio menu on the set to let you select Variable Output or Fixed Output. Again.. change it to FIXED.

Hope this helps!

I am trying to connect my bose cinemate speaker system to my new sharp Aquos Quattron tv but I am not having success. I called Sharp and she told me to put the TV on the variable select mode but this is...


I assume you have everything hooked up? You should have the Audio Out from your interface module connected to the Audio IN of the TV. The sound should be set to fixed, not variable. Variable means you control the sound output from the TV which controls the sound from the Bose. Not Good. Sound quality is not as good and confusing to customers. Make sure your selecting the right tv input on the Bose system. You should be good to go.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

I just installed a Bose Cinemate II system. HDMI cable from cable box to TV. HDMI cable from PS3 to TV. Optical cable from Cinemate to TV. Cable TV audio works fine but no audio on PS3. TV has only one...


No,you are not mistaken actually.I really don't have much to offer though.I just want to let you know that I have seen many problems with HDMI cables and no sound.HDMI does in fact transfer audio/video.Even though I do not like to use Wikipedia because anyone can edit the info,I check and see if it is accurate first and does give the best descriptions and is the quickest and easiest to find.This is a newer technology.Any new technology is usually not figured out until about year 5.In year 3,they are able to get the kinks worked out,but year 4 is already in production.They start designing and building the best version for year 5 next.Although 5 years isn't always achieved,it is more of a minimum to see the best possible of the technology.Happens with cars,TV's,VCR's,etc.Prices come down as everyone who wants it is greatly reduced by then also.Anyhow,here is a link to some info about HDMI.Scroll down to Communication channel protocols.Under TMDS there is some relevant info.You may not understand the terminology but basically it seems that there is an internal automatic muting with certain changes in the audio signal.It just sounds to me like the automatic mute is too sensitive right now and will improve over time.There is also some encryption taking place which is basically taking the output,scrambling it,sending it somewhere,and then being unscrambled and reproduced identically.Same as wireless internet.With all the various products being used,everyone has their own way of doing something.Since it isn't exactly made with exact specifications,there are many variations to interpret.If someone were to have ALL components made by 1 company,it would most likely work much better.How many people have that kind of setup though?Very few.There is not 1 company which makes everything they produce,better than everyone else's.Some make better radios,some TV's,etc.Right now,some of the better TV's are Samsung,LG,Vizio.Some better phones are AT&T,Panasonic.Bose has been at the top of the food chain for years for audio for that reason also.They do audio,nothing else,so they can put everything into it.I know this is a bit wordy but that's why I am here.To inform and educate people about things which they most likely don't understand and encourage them to spread the word.Hope you understand this anyhow.Basically,depending on how old your PS3 is,there may be compatibilty issues.With HDMI changing/upgrading rapidly,if your PS3 is an earlier version,it could simply be compatibility because PS3's even were changed as they sold more.If you have any questions or need more help,just comment here and I will get an autolink to your post and reply ASAP.Here is the link for HDMI characteristics/operation.Good luck,Greg

Bose surrond sound not working...


Your TV may have a setting to make its Audio Output Variable or Fixed. That is, as you turn the TV's volume down or up it will either vary the output (as it seems to be doing in your case) or keep it Fixed so external electronics can still use it when the TV's volume is down or off. Some TV's do it another way - they have a selection to turn the TV's speakers OFF.

How do I get sound from bose cinemate while watching Bluray with?


You are right I checked the Manual online and there is no Optical in. The other tech was right in suggesting that, Cause it would be the next best thing to HDMI. It only has 1 Analog Audio in, So what I would Recommend is Plugging in all of your Devices to your TV and then 1 Audio cable from your TV to The Bose input. Although this will NOT transfer Digital Audio to Analog Audio. This means if you are going in HDMI then the Audio would most likely NOT transfer to the Bose. In this case you would have to hook up a set of Audio cables (Red and White) From the Blu-Ray to the Bose along with the HDMI. This will leave you with only Audio from the Blu-ray through the Bose. To go a step further you can purchase an Audio Splitter (or Video) then plug your Devices into the Splitter and then 1 cable out to the Bose and just Switch the Input along with the TV. Good Luck!

No sound coming from Bose cinemate when connected to tv.


maybe you're doing something wrong? Not familiar with how it hooks up (RCA from adio out behind tv to the input of the cinemate?) You can always contact bose directly as they seem to be good as far as customer service. I would also suggest thoroughly reading the instruction manual a few times. And if all else fails, then return it.

Connecting my HDTV to my Bose Cinemate


If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.
