Question about Televison & Video
I have a Bose Lifestyle 25 system that has been working just fine on a large screen tv for the past few years. I just purchased a new Panasonic Plasma 50 " TV. Everything is hooked up right. The problem is that the Bose remote, which should work anywhere in the house will only work when it is right above the Bose lifestyle system. If I move the remote 24 inches away, it stops working. If I turn off the Plasma TV, the Bose system will work fine anywhere in the home. I have called both and Bose and Panasonic and they keep telling me that the other company is the problem. Bose says that Panasonic Plasmas have EMI (electro magnetic interference) that is their fault. Panasonic says Bose has the problem. I have moved the unit away from the tv, I have changed the cords to other separate outlets. I moved the power cords away from each other. I just do not know what to do other than return the Plasma. Any help would be appreciated!
I posted the message as Tet Tet before. I can now tell you that I have resolved the problem. The issue is with the Panasonic 50Inch TV. Some people reported the same problem but only when the TV was up on the wall. It turns out that the problem lies with the metal discs which screw on at the back of the TV to enable you to hand the TV on the wall bracket. In my case I had excessive interference caused at the back of the TV (could be the fan). When I put the TV on the wall bracket the metal discs would be in contact with the wall bracket which in turn was acting as an antenna causing the iterference to the bose remote which operates at a frequency of 27.45MHz. You can solve the issue by adding some insulating tape around all the metal discs avoiding them to make contact with the wall bracket. If that fails Panasonic will swap your TV for another one like they did with me. I can now enjoy my Bose System with the 50 inch Panasonic TV. It took me three months but managed to get a solution. I hope this helps. For further info you can mail me at firstname.lastname@example.org. These discs should be made of metal because they are perforating the metal screen at the back of the TV. Panasonic please change this design.

Thanks RizzoMan, I did finally exchanged the Pansonic for another Pansonic, same model, and now I have no problem. When I took it back to the store the associate said they have had the same problem with other Pansonics too. I was hoping this would not happen again and it hasn't. We are totally enjoying our new Pansonic Plsma and Bose. Thanks for your reply. Tet Tet
