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.....?

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.

My Bose LifeStyle V20 remote died and I purchased the PMCII remote. It is supposed to be compatible with the MC1 but I cannot get it to work. How do I program the PMCII remote to work with the v20 sy


If you wish to buy its original remote control, contact the authorized service centre, or authorized dealer to your device brand. They can either give you a genuine remote control to your device, or can direct you, from where can you purchased a suitable one.
To select a proper universal remote control, you should know about the number of digits to its set-up codes. There are 3 digit, 4 digit, 5 digit, 2 digit and even single digit codes, to some brand devices. After confirming this, check the sites linked here. Both the sites have set-up code list and set-up procedure to many popular brand remote controls. Check which brand remote control has set-up code/s to your device brand, and buy that one according to availability? Brand name of the remote control isn't a matter, but it should have set-up codes in its code list, to the device brand you have.
Please note: Every new universal remote control will have set-up code list, and set-up procedure along with its pack. Never accept a remote control, that hasn't both of this. For more details about the set-up codes, visit the site http://electrohelponline.blogspot.com/ Check this site too. http://remotesearch.blogspot.com/ If you see these sites by "MOSAIC" or "Magazine" view will make surf easier. Or type in the brand name of your device in the search box, and press "Enter".
Universal remote controls are available at most of the electronic spare part selling shops.

My bose remote for my lifestyle48 only works from really close up? I was lead to believe they work from any room in the house... what's wrong?


The Bose Lifestyle 48 remote is RF device and is rated to work up to 65 feet (20m) away from the system (brick, steel, etc. construction will reduce this distance significantly however). The remote is discussed in two places of the installation manual.

The first speaks to the receiving antenna on page 16 in the form of a "Note" below section 4G. It states that both of the power cords (one between the VS2 and Media Center the second that supplies power to the VS2) need to be fully extended. Wrapping up excess cable will reduce the receiving range of the system to the remote transmitter.

The second location is at the bottom of page 29. Here, it offers the solution to poor remote performance to be an optional "remote extender" that looks like it connects to the rear of the system (RC connector?). The extender is available for an additional cost and you must contact Bose to obtain it. I can't find an image of it and Bose doesn't produce any information about it when searching their website.

I hope this helps and good luck! Please rat emy reply - thanks.
