When using dvd player, i get only one speaker to play sound. I called Bose Tech dept. and was told it was my audio plug that was faulty. However my tv is basically new. 3mo old.,, So , I , called Vizio tech whom sent me through same trail and error as Bose Tech , Their answer was that because it works with Tv signal from Dish Satelite, that the problem lies with formatt of sound, Said i should try a movie with 5.0 sound or better in order for the Bose cinemate to work. In other words : if i am not watching a 5.0 surround sound movie all dvd will play only from one speaker. what do you think? Does not sound rite to me . Please email to email@example.com, also i will check this site for your answer. Thanks Frustrated. and Disappointed.

You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.
If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker
system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite
box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
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.
your tv might have aux out on the back, I would use that first.
IF NOT, then you will need to use the cable box.Insert the red and white plugs at the other end of
this cable into the AUDIO IN TV or cable box connectors on the
Be sure to match red to red and white to white. 3.Use your TV remote control to turn the TV speakers
down to minimum volume.
This prevents the echo effect of audio playing
through both the TV speakers and your 3•2•1®
how many audio input does your cinemate have? in case you only have one, you need an audio video switcher. a sample picture of what you need is on this link > http://electronicsusa.com/svs14.html
find what you need, that is just for you to see what its look like.
another thing is check you dvd if it has a line input - meaning it allows you to connect another source into your dvd such as vhs, cd, mp3. for for audio video - you need 3 wires (video/audio left-right), for stereo audio - 2 wires (left/right connection). some dvd player call it as line1 and line2 inputs. if you have it then you should be ok. 3rd approach, a simple audio mixer with minimum 3 inputs and 1 ouput is enough. note: last thing, check your connection interface for connection compatibility if you plan to buy audio video switcher or audio mixer. hope this help. regards, cebuwano
You'd be better off hooking the speakers to the RECEIVER'S speaker outputs, THEN hooking your TV audio output to an unused receiver input, such as AUX. The signals from your receiver cannot reach the TV; thus your CD player and radio will not play through the speakers if the speakers are hooked to the TV. All receiver INPUTS are designed to accept the same signal level; thus, you can use any input for your TV audio, such as Aux, DVD, CD, etc. Just remember which input you're using for the TV audio, and everything should work fine. Almost all receivers have an AUX input; hopefully yours also has a dedicated CD input to avoid confusion. The you simply select the AUX input to hear your TV through the speakers.
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)
If your BOSE system only has one audio input you will have to connect everything to your tv and like the other guy said there will be an audio out on the back of your tv, connect that to your BOSE and when you switch inputs on your tv it should send that audio to your speaker setup.
