Question about Bose Lifestyle 20 System
SOURCE: PCM 2.0
I have the Bose 3-2-1 GS Series II and initially could only get PCM audio. However, I now get Dolby Digital 2.0 and 5.1 audio through the following connections: 1) Connected a coaxial digital audio cable from Digital Audio Out (coaxial) on the HD cable box to CBL-SAT (D) on the Bose Media Center. 2) Connected a coaxial digital
audio cable from Digital Audio Out (coaxial) on my Toshiba DVD Recorder/Player to AUX (D) on the Bose Media Center. All video connections are from the cable box to the TV and from the Toshiba recorder/player to the TV. To receive Dolby Digital audio, I press either CBL-SAT or AUX on the Bose Remote Control. Good luck!

I connected my surround sound to the audio output on my samsung tv and it works fine. Of course I don't have an hdmi input on my surround sound system because its an older model, but it works great. Just got to put the surround sound to audio instead of dvd or tuner setting

I had the same problem, and called Bose tech support. They put me on track to the solution. The code you need is under AUX, Music Player, Apple where you probably looked already. The secret is that you need to "unpair" the apple remote first. If I remeber right, in apple TV you go to settings, general, remotes and unpair your remote. It still works, but is no longer the only remote that works.

Call Bose and get the latest software for your system. This will solve the problem.
I had the exact same problem with my Lifestyle 48 system connected to a Dish Networks satellite box (Vip622). The sound would continually switch between 'Dolby Digital 2.0', 'Dolby Digital' and 'Dolby Digital 5.1'.
I called Bose Tech Support and they had me reset all of the components. This helped for a short time but it was still happening. They told me that the problem was with the Satellite box, since the Bose system just output what it was receiving and didn't do anything else. We also determined that my system software was quite old. They said that the software wouldn't make any difference, but I got them to send it out anyway.
Well, when the new software update arrived, I installed it on my Bose system and have not had any audio switching problems. So the Bose system software update seemed to fix the problem.
