Reconnect the Bose link connection at the Multi room interface and at the Acoustimass Module.If this doesn't help,change the remote control batteries.If the it still display "no response",it means either the interface or remote is bad
There was a time when I had two bridged-mono Carver Cube atmps (at a real 400 watts) pushing one 901 each but that was big time overkill.
I now use a Carver AV-406 (functionally the same as your MM7055) with the 901 EQ in between the AV Receiver's front pre-outs and two 110-watt channels. Other channels on the AV-406 pull subwoofer and surround back duties. My AVR directly powers only the center and surround speakers.
If you have the money to plunk down for a Bose Acoustimass home theater speaker system, I'm sure you will be quite pleased. Of course, as you indicated, appropriate placement of the speakers is important. Still, I'm sure you will find that a properly placed Bose Acoustimass speaker system will fill your room with high quality sound, substantially better than Onkyo's stock speakers placed equally well.
I own a Technics home theater system, which I initially purchased to use in my family room. Yet, when I listened to a Bose Lifestyle system (powered by Bose Acoustimass speakers), I could have nothing less. The Bose system went in the family room, where everyone could enjoy it. I put the Technics system in the bedroom, where it is rarely used.
Bose Lifestyle (and all Bose-amplified speaker) products and their speakers are SYSTEMS and should not be split up or intermixed with other brands or models. Damage will probably result. Proprietary connectors provides a clue.
The digital audio out should work with the Bose. You could still use your Denon to drive a conventional sub in your scheme, but you would have to manually match volume with the Bose. Or go Full Monty and buy a full complement of speakers for the Denon, retask the Bose and slave its sources to the Denon.
I connected my iPod with the same Bose with a cable you can get from Radio Shack for under $10.00. Please forgive me for not knowing the technical terms but one end has the male red and white plugs (audio composite)while the other is a single malplug that goes into your iPod. Just pick an open spot to plug it into the back of the Bose (Tape, Aux, Video) adn you are on your way.
Here's what the Bose support website suggests. Good Luck!
Messages displayed during a Music Information Update
Messages may appear on your media center display during a Music Information Update. If you see a message with instructions to call Bose, and a three-digit code such as "Error Code 802" or "Failed 172" while performing a Music Information Update, it does not necessarily mean there's something wrong with the system. Performing a media center reset and installing the update again may address the issue.
To reset your media center, follow these steps:
Turn the media center off. Wait two minutes
Unplug the power cord from the media center. Wait 30 seconds
Reconnect the power cord
Wait until "Bose Lifestyle" disappears from the screen
Note: After a reset, you will need to wait several minutes before playing stored music (3 to 20 minutes, depending on how many CDs have been stored). All other sources will be available immediately after the system powers up.
If you have any additional questions about these messages, please contactBose® Technical Support or call 1-800-278-1281.
