SOURCE: Connect Bose 901 VI EQ to a Harmon Kardon AVR 247 Amp

Similar problem...I came up with a solution with help from Onyko. For my receiver, at least, the bottom line was that the output from the equalizer MUST go to 'Receiver, Tape In'! Since that is the ONLY input source from the equalizer, you must combine elsewhere. Part of my setup included the Radio Shack Audio/Video Selector box which costs $21.99...you might not need it, but in my case, I couldn't plug all components into the back of the receiver and have them go through the equalizer.

Since I have a satellite receiver, DVD player and TV, that I want to route through the equalizer, here is the way mine is set up and working:

Satellite receiver and DVD player out to Radio Shack audio/video selector

Audio/video selector out to VCR in.

VCR video directly to TV

VCR audio red/white (audio) out to equalizer

Equalizer out to Receiver Tape IN (Receiver Out not used)

Hope this (or a variation of it) helps.

SOURCE: 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!

SOURCE: bose cinemate no sound

Yes it will work coming straight off the dirctv box. What kind of tv do u have that doesnt have an audio out. I have had to actually use rca splitters to get sound from bluray and cable box because the new samsung led tvs only have optical out. Dont forget the unit not being used must be off or u will have 2 source sounds at one time playing.

Can I hook up the Bose Companion 2 series speakers to my HDTV and get acceptable sound?


Hi,
Well if you currently find the sound of the Bose acceptable and your inbuilt HD TV speakers poor, then the answer is yes. Should you not like the sound of the Bose, plugging them into an HD TV won't make them sound any better :-)

Just use the headphone out of your HD TV to connect. You may find you need to enable the headphone socket/volume via the menu settings on your HD TV

Good morning. I want to get an idea on how to connect my Panasonic lcd TCL32X1X to my Bose Sound System. What I want is to hear tv programs thru the Bose speakers.


TV's are video OUTPUT devices, not sound INPUT devices.

Get the TV-related audio into the Bose directly from the digital audio output of the same source from which the TV is getting the video. You can also run a mid-fi RCA analog stereo feed to the TV (if it has speakers) so you can watch and listen to stuff without the Bose turned on.

We want to hook up an HDMI dvd player to the tv and have the sound come thru the Bose Lifestyle 38 (older model, did not come w/the HDMI converter that the 48 has or newer systems come with). We are not...


The best way to do this is to take your OPTICAL AUDIO OUT from your TV - (if it's a newer TV) - plug it in to the OPTICAL AUDIO IN on your BOSE system, then use the 'TV' source on your Lifestyle 38 to get the sound from. I have sound for X-Box, DVD player, Blue-Ray Player and Wii being pushed through the TV back to the BOSE and it sounds great. I don't have to change the source on the BOSE very much either - except when I listen to stored music!

NO SOUND FROM TV THROUGH THE SOUND SYSTEM SPEAKERS


Hello,
All you need to do is follow the following directions on your TV and you will be on your way listening to your great Philips TV on your great Sony Surround Sound. You do not need to buy any other cords or anything else. Its just a setting on your TV that needs to be adjusted.
By the way, I have a Sony Home Thearte System DAV-HDX275 and I've had it for almost 8 months and its sounds good with my TV and Movies. The speakers are very cheap and it doesn't give you the sound you expect. So I came accross some Boston Accustics CR65's that are not sold anymore but they did run around $700 a peice. I am upgrading the Reciever very soon to a better qualtiy Reciever. This Surround Sound System is great for a starter Surround Sound System.
  1. Press MENU on the remote control and select TV settings >
  2. Press up or down to highlight a sound setting and press right to select the setting.
  3. Press up or down to adjust the setting, and press OK to confirm the change.
  4. Press Menu to exit.
You want to pick Incredible Surround, but if that does not work try them all. The Incredible Surround should do the trick because that switches it from the TV Speakers to the Surround Sound.

Thank you for using Fix Ya!

Don't forget to rate the overall satisfaction of this solution.
Have a Great One!

Can't get picture after connecting to receiver nad speakers


Sounds like something got confused in the re-wiring...if the TV signal from cable doesn't involve a box, then the co-ax should go straight to the "cable in" or "RF in" on the TV, and the sound equipment gets connected to output ports on the TV. Otherwise, try bypassing the video connections on receiver or whatever and go directly to TV...My surround sound has video in and out, but I've never used them, it doesn't matter.
