Question about Bose Lifestyle 38 System
My parents have a Bose Lifestyle 38 in which they never used the optical input. So I had them purchase an optical cord to input from cable box to TV to receive 5.1 audio. The problem is that it seems like some of the audio channels aren't present with the optical input, especially some commercials where no audio is present. I have also tried other output sources such as my XBOX360 and the same problem exists where certain channels aren't present. I have also tried 3 other optical cables which I have and they don't remedy the problem. Any tips would be much appreciated. Thanks!
Only one can be digital. TV preferably since you probably watch more tv than dvds. use the analog output from the bluray to the analog in on the lifestyle 28 and optical for TV

this is possible, however not a very good idea.
Bose speakers are designed a little different than other brand speakers, the Equalizer built into the bose system will probably not sound amazing when you hook up your other speakers. Are you looking for more bass? cleaner highs?
if you want more bass, you could try doubling up your subs, if you want cleaner highs you could buy Bose Jewel Cube Speakers (purchased from a Bose Built-Invisible Dealer

audio has to connected seperatly.vs 2 is for video connection only..Bose is a ripoff.... u pay all that money and you need a seperate audio connection plus all those wires..it isn't worth it and regret i bought it.

Actually, you can do this. Just get an optical to RCA converter.
This looks like a good one: http://www.amazon.com/Cables-Go-40019-Optical-Converter/dp/B0002GV876/ref=pd_cp_e_2
