You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

You have to run an audio path with RCA cables from the TV (or the cable box, as applicable) to the Bose, then disable or turn down the TV volume.

SOURCE: communicating with your tv message on bose 321 series 2

Well, it seems that this may be a common issue with this BOSE unit. My 321 GSIII was working fine as well for about a week. After a full frustrating day of switching, disconnecting, reconnecting cables and resetting the unit and TV several times, I was forced to call the BOSE Technical. They tried to help with the situation over the phone by directing me to do just about everything I did before I ever called them. After about an hour of their unsuccessful help, they left me in saying that I will now have to run Composite cables because my TV will not connect for some reason through HDMI even though it was working for a short time. AHHHHH...I custom prepared the walls in my new office to accommodate non-exposed cables and wires and now BOSE is saying to expose Composite cables. Tomorrow, I am going to connect the Composite cables to confirm if the 321 will now work that way (for curiousty). I will then call BOSE back and demand a replacement unit. I will keep all in the loop with my progress of this situation.

What is Bose 321 gsx video format?


The video formats are:

composite video (yellow phono/RCA) - 480i/576i [NTSC and PAL, respectively]

S-video video (black 4 pin din) - 480i/576i [NTSC and PAL, respectively]

Component (3x phono/RCA - Green Blue Red) - 480p NTSC only. Applies just to the DVD player output.

The 3-2-1 system has a couple of composite inputs, one s-video input, no (0) Component inputs. It has 1x composite output, 1x S-video output, 1x Component output.

The Bose system has very basic video handling capabilities. It will only pass through a signal in the same format as it is received. So, a composite signal in requires that the TV or display is hooked up with composite too. IOW, it won't up convert composite or S-video to component.

Have a Bose 3-2-1 Series III. When I put in a DVD, I get sound through the Bose but no picture on my Pioneer TV. This is the second time it has happened. The first time it, we managed to get it going...


Here are 3 things to try and an if all else fails at the end.

1) Make sure the TV is set to the correct Video Input to see the video from DVDs on the Bose system.
• Make sure a DVD is in the disc tray.
• If the TV is connected to the media center using the HDMI cable:
Switch from one Video Input to another and then back to the original input.

2) Turn everything off, then:
Turn on the TV and set the TV Video Input for the Bose system video.
Turn on the Bose system and press DVD.

3) Turn off both the TV and the Bose system and then:
Unplug the HDMI cable from both ends.
Disconnect the power cables from both your TV and the Bose 321 system.
Re-connect power to the TV and to the Bose 321 system.
When the Bose 321 system startup message disappears from the display,
re-connect the HDMI cable to the TV then Bose 321 system.
Turn on the TV first, then turn on the Bose 321 system.

If all the above fail then disconnect the HDMI cable that connects the TV to the Bose 321 system and reconnect the two using a Component cable, an S-Video cable, or the Composite cable provided with the system.


Please leave feedback

Cheers

BOSE 321 DVD movie movie picure is blue. Its connected to a Sony LCD digital Wide screen TV Bravia Model KDL 40V2500 and my cable box. Could it be a loose connection.


Sounds like you are using a component cable(red,green,blue) rather than an HDMI cable.

Component cables are fine to use but if one of the 3 cables is disconnected, loose or bad, you may see blue video.

Check for loose connections or bad cables and make sure the proper color is plugged into its matching color.
