SOURCE: Hello,I have a Bose Lifestyle

If you use both s-video and composite (yellow) video at the same time on the bose system, it thinks you want to use the component adapter (which is included with the system). Just use one or the other. But if this is still in black and white (it may because the system still thinks you're using the adapter) just press "system" on the bose remote, and go to "video" and then "video connector" If video connector says "Component", try to change this to "composite + s". If this doesn't let you change it (it may not) then restart the system by unplugging the DC power cable for 30 seconds and re-connect it. I hope this helps.

SOURCE: Bose Lifestyle 48 System play's dvd in black & white only

Your s-video cable at the back of your media center is loose. This will cause black and white internal video and is known to fall out or just become loose from minor movement. (it's the nature of s-video cables) This should solve your problem. This is the s-video cable that connects to the VS2 and media center.
If this doesn't solve the problem (I'd be surprised), just reset it by unplugging the DC power cable at the side of the VS-2 for about 30+ seconds and plug it back in..

This sounds like a loose s-video cable at the back of the media center (connecting from the VS-2). Check that connection.
If adjusting this cable does not fix this (I'd be surprised) then just reset your media center by unplugging the dc power cable for about a minute and plugging it in again. (while system is off first of course)

SOURCE: Hello, i have a vizio flat screen tv and i don't

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.

SOURCE: PS3 to Bose Lifestyle 28

hey, this is how i have mine set up.

Bose to PS3 via Digital Audio Optical
PS3 to TV via HDMI

This way you can get Full 5.1 surround sound, and good picture quality, also, go to the bose menu and set the optical source to your PS3.

Black and white


The Lifestyle 38 has no HDMI output. It all depends on what inputs your TV has, which cable set up would be the best for you. Assuming that your TV has an SVideo input, you indeed can use the SVideo output of the Bose system, to get the DVD picture on your TV. However you will need to connect the audio output of the TV to the TV input of the LS 38 to get the TV sound to play over your LS 38. In case you don't have an SVideo connection on your TV, you can use the composite output of the Bose system and connect it to the video input of your TV (yellow in and outputs)

Connect lifestyle 48 to plasma and dvr


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.

Check your video output settings in the menu. If you are using a composite video output and do not have the system sut up for it, you will get a B&W picture. Check your menu settings.

Bose lifestyle 48 dvd black and white only


Go to the "Bose" menu screen viewing on your TV (make sure no dvd is in the player) Go to your Video controls and check your output, chances are, if your using the component output your player is set to "S-Video". Should fix the problem. Hope this helps. If it's still not viewing correctly, post a comment and I will help you some more

We had the same issue. The svideo cable was no longer connected. It had become unconnected when we were connecting a game system.

Go to the menu system and change your system from NTSC to PAL, or vice versa. Instructions for this are on p.39 of the manual.
