I just installed a Lifestyle 38. HDMI from Bose to TV. HDMI from Cable box to Bose. Everything works fine, but HD channels flash and then go black and green. I swapped the HDMI cable from cable box to Bose with component, but same result.
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.

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)
I appreciate that you did an isolation steps where the fault maybe by running a HDMI straight from your your Direct TV box.We could further steps by following mentioned below
1. Please make sure your connecting the HDMI cable on the right port 2.Please make sure you are using the HDMI cable compatible to the system.also try the supplied cable from Bose. 3. If still does not work,please contact the manufacturer or contact the store where the item was purchased
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!
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.
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.
The Bose VS2 does not pass the HDMI audio. Must connect analog or digital audio direct to the corresponding audio input on the media center. Also, verify you have loaded laster Console Software revision provided by Bose.
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.
