Question about Bose Lifestyle 18 System

1 Answer

Cable Guy messed up Bose 18 sound

Our cable box died. The cable tech installed a new box. In the process he snapped the cord to the TV sensor. We have remote rooms attached and sound plays in all other rooms (TV, DVD, Radio) but not in the primary room. Prior to this when they system was on TV sound played through the system but not through the TV. Now sound plays through the TV but not the Bose. I am not certain he hooked the cables back up right but I can't find a hook up diagram anywhere. Bose set up the system and there isn't one in the materials they gave us.

    I found a diagram and corrected the cable hookups. We have an installed system. It appears that the directlink "A" cable to the theater is not providing sound. The directlink "B" to the other rooms is providing sound from the system. Could the cable guy have done something that blew the amp?

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!

Plasma Television Connection


hmm a bit...complicated but if they all use HDMI then one cord is all you need going to the tv from the bose sound system while any other HDMI connection should directly go into the bose sound system or if the dvd player uses RCA then RCA sound should go to the sound system and video directly to the tv
