Question about Bose Lifestyle 48 System

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr

How do I connect my Bose Lifestyle 48 to my Samsung plasma and my Comcast Motorola HD DVR box? I use the HDMI cable to connect the DVR to the tv, and the audio jacks for the Bose. I have to use my tv's speakers for the cable, and only get Bose surround when I play a DVD.

Any suggestions? I'd like to keep using the HDMI cable for my connection from the cable to the tv so I can get the highest signal there. I don't have a way to connect an HDMI cable to my Lifestyle box. If I'm out of luck, that answer would be helpful, too!

You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.

Unfortunately, BOSE does not do HD yet so the only way to get around it, is to run all of your inputs (DVR etc) throught the TV and use an audio out from the TV to the BOSE in order to get your surround sound. If you still wish to use the BOSE to play DVD's, you will have to settle for either composite output (yellow/white/red) or component output (green,blue,red + white red).

I have a Bose lifestyle 50 (from 1999) and just purchased a new Sony Bravia TV. How can I connect the TV to the Bose sound system?


hello!
unless your "Bose" has an optical or coaxial digital stream audio inputs, there is no way of connecting TVs audio output to your receiver(home theater). to by pass the TV itself, connect analog audio output off your cable or set top boxes. those, still have analog audio out. If you need to connect more audio sources, use TV as a video monitor, connect all the audio outs to your "Bose", instead. In case of terrestrial broadcast, you may need to obtain digital converter box and use it simultaneously with TV to get your audio out. Also, if you lack DVR, that box will allow you to use regular DVD recorder. It's not going to be HD quality, but better, than nothing. You can't feed HD video signal out of TV set.Only analog.
good luck,
Alex.

Hello, i have a vizio flat screen tv and i don't know the correct places to connect the cables of my Bose Lifestyle 48 Series IV DVD Home Entertainment System. Please help me


Does the Bose have HDMI out? Does the tv have an HDMI socket?
If it does just connect them both together. All inputs i.e. cd, ps3 dvd etc will go into the Bose.

HDTV goes blank when connected to Fios HD-DVR or Fios DTV recvr.


If you can first connect the Fios box via component and that will rectify the issue and still allow HD. HDMI is funny, if there is anykind of communication issues between the TV or the Fios box you see what happens. You might also call Samsung to see if there is ANY firmware/software updated for your TV specifically to fix such an issue with the Fios/Mortorola connection. If there isn't then the issue is the cable box since the TV works ok on HDMI with other devices.

Connecting HD cable box to DVR too HDTV


When I hooked up my HD cable box using an HDMI cable, I had to go into the cable screen menus and select HDMI output. You may have to do something similar when using an S-video cable. Your DVD recorder doesn't seem to have an HDMI input, so you'll have to use the S-video or (worst case) composite video (red, white, yellow cords). Your cable box may also be scrambling the signal so that you can't record. That may be why you can record by bypassing the cable box.

Lifestyle 38 and HD


I have also have this problem with a lifestyle 28 system. Bose sent me a new cable then a software update. The problem remained, after contacting Bose and unplugging cables and powering down the system this solved the problem. However 2 days after and the problem has re-appeared. Back to square one. I should add that this is the second unit I have had the retailer exchanged the last one because of the same problem.

Home Theater install


yes sounds about right what you are doing as long as you have 2 digital audio 'inputs' on your Bose to get the audio from the dvd player and cable box. Apart from your last part "I will then use Digital Audio from the Bose to the TV." The tv will only downrate the audio to two channel stereo, so its not worth puting audio through the tv as you only get stereo anyway, so might as well let the tvs speakers power it out themselves.
