Sony Audio Optical Out to Bose Optical In not working
I have a Sony SXRD.XBR code kds-r50xbr1 and a Bose lifestyle system. I have run my HDMI cables from my cable box and my ps3 into the TV. Then I want to connect to my BOSE system. I assume that I should use the digital audio optical out connector to get the best sound to my bose. However, I cannot get the digital optical out to work at all from the TV. If I connect the cable box directly to the bose it works, sames goes with the PS3. However, my bose system has only one optical in slot, so I was hoping to use the TV so I can listen to both as digital sound. Why would this not work (ps, I've gone into my settings for all of the components and followed the instructions, such as turning speaker off on the sony tv to access the audio out option)

You might want to try connecting the Apple TV to your TV using HDMI, then using the optical cable from your TV to your Bose system. In your TV's settings, there should be an Audio Output option. You'll want to turn off the TV speakers. Optical audio can be a little strange compared to traditional analog. If your cord is going bad, it could result in behavior like you described.
hook up computer straight to t.v with hdmi cable. then get two aux cables (usually red and white) and run them straight from tv audio OUTPUT to audio INPUT on bose system. them anytime you want surround sound even when your watching tv just press the aux button on the bose system controller. should be perfect.
I have the same system. I have a Lifestyle and a Sony TV with a Samsung Blueray player. I also have an X-box 360, plus my pc with all my CDs (I-tunes) plays through my bose. Do this:
1. Use the optical cable for the blueray player to the Bose (AUX).
2. Use a digital audio cable from the cable box (either black or orange output) to the Bose CBL-SAT digital input. (it's a single audio cable)
3. For my PC, I'm using a digital cable from the pc to the Bose. I'm using the TV output because it's empty.
4. For my x-box (which I'm not too happy about) I'm using regular red-white audio cables from Bose TV input directly to the TV audio out. (You can play all of the above through this channel, but don't).
I figured the most important high quality sound should come from the blueray player and from watching regular cable tv. For picture, you should be using all HDMI connections.
audio has to connected seperatly.vs 2 is for video connection only..Bose is a ripoff.... u pay all that money and you need a seperate audio connection plus all those wires..it isn't worth it and regret i bought it.
