Question about Bose PMCII 035323 LCD Remote Control
HELP. THE REMOTE WILL NOT RECEIVE ANY INFORMATION FROM THE LIFESTYLE 48 MEDIA CENTRE. I HAVE TRIED LONGER AERIAL BUT NO JOY. IS THERE ANYWAY OF BOOSTING THE SIGNAL FROM THE MEDIA CENTRE OR RECEIVER IN THE REMOTE TO SOLVE THIS ISSUE?
Have you tried using the remote antenna supplied with the Bose system? This connects to the "Remote antenna" socket on the rear of the media centre and is made up of 2 parts: a shielded section (black in colour) that runs past any sources of interference - mains or signal cables, other electronics products - and the unshielded antenna (clear plastic covered copper wire) that must be fully extended vertically to act as an aerial. Position this away from sources of interference and as close to the second room as possible (Bose do a longer version, free of charge in some countries....)
The remotes only have a range of up to 20metres - this will drop the more walls it passes through and the thicker the walls. Any interference can affect this - radio transmitting equipment (WiFi, video sender, but especially products transmitting on the same frequency - 27MHz or 40MHz, e.g wirless thermostats or alarm systems....) or products with poorly shielded transformers. Experiment with swtiching off other electical equipment (including lights if they have a transformer - e.g. halogen spot lamps). If you identify a source, can you move it away.....?

SOURCE: My Bose remote control RC28TI-27
Did you find a solution? I unscrewed the screw under the battery compartment lid near the rear end of the remote. The rattle is a broken radio frequency antenna. A replacement for this ancient remote is $89 plus shipping and handling. Supposedly the Bose systems can also be programmed with some universal remotes without rf antennae.

I got my bose remote to work when I did a system update on the remote. Turn the TV on. Select the TV video input that connects the system. On the control console, press and hold setup until the system information screen displays. line 5 will display the currently installed console software version. on the remote press any button. Line 10 will display the currently installed remote software version. Do a bose system update. On the control console press setup. on the remote control, press the down arrow until update is highlighted and press ok. make sure yes is highlighed and press ok. on the control console plug a clean usb drive into the usb port.when prompted, remove the usb drive and connect it to a computer. open the drive and double click on the download_launcher file, which should bring you to an update page on bose.com. Once complete, put it back in the control console. When the update is complete remove the usb.
