I HOOKED UP THE AUDIO CONNECTIONS FROM MY CABLE BOX TO THE BOSE RECEIVER. THE SOUND DOESN'T SOUND MUCH BETTER THAN MY TV SPEAKERS. WOULD USING A FIBER OPTIC CABLE MAKE MUCH DIFFERENCE?

You don't state how you have connected it but even with an analogue cable the sound should be better than your TV speakers, unless you have fantastic TV speakers, so something else is wrong however yes it should be better with as the full stereo surround signal is (if supported by your cable box) is transmitted digitally over the cable, so any analogue problems such as bad connections etc will be eliminated. I would not however buy a cable until you figure out whether there is a problem with your cable box or the Bose, do you have access to another source and connecting cable you could try first? Also go into the cable box menu and check if the sound out is correctly configured. Please rate my reply. Thanks

I have a Bose lifestyle 50 (from 1999) and just purchased a new Sony Bravia TV. How can I connect the TV to the Bose sound system?


hello!
unless your "Bose" has an optical or coaxial digital stream audio inputs, there is no way of connecting TVs audio output to your receiver(home theater). to by pass the TV itself, connect analog audio output off your cable or set top boxes. those, still have analog audio out. If you need to connect more audio sources, use TV as a video monitor, connect all the audio outs to your "Bose", instead. In case of terrestrial broadcast, you may need to obtain digital converter box and use it simultaneously with TV to get your audio out. Also, if you lack DVR, that box will allow you to use regular DVD recorder. It's not going to be HD quality, but better, than nothing. You can't feed HD video signal out of TV set.Only analog.
good luck,
Alex.

I have this receiver hooked up to a Vizio LED tv and a Vizio Blue Ray using HDMI cables. The surround sound works from the speakers while watching a dvd (HDMI -1 connection) but I have no surround sound...


AV cables don't pass surround sound through, they are pretty much just left and right stereo. You need to turn pro logic on on the reciever to "pretend" to play surround. The better option of course would be to use a digital signal like another HDMI cable or digital optical audio from the cable box, if thats what your using.

Denon avr-1804/884, speakers Bose vcs center, Bose acoustimass 5 series 3 speaker system, Bose 201 series 4. All speakers play in test mode, with tuner, dvd, phono, cassette. The left side speakers will...


You don't say how "TV audio" is entering the system.

My guess is you're using analog audio Out from the TV into an analog input on the Denon. One channel failing would probably be the Left Channel cable failing or not seated.

I always recommend bypassing the TV audio entirely if the programming comes from somewhere other than its own antenna, as TV audio electronics add nothing good to the process.

If you're using cable box, sat box, game, whatever, ITS audio is best sent directly to your Denon's specialized audio hardware - digitally, if possible, to preserve multichannel possibilities.

You could also run standard analog audio from the cable box to the TV analog Audio IN if you just want to watch news and weather on TV speakers without the Denon involved.

TV/DVD surround sound through receiver


Try running digital audio from the source - cable/sat - to the receiver. The fewer intervening connections and entities, the better. TV's are NOT considered sound sources for high end purposes or we wouldn't have Yamaha HTR-5860's and better speakers, would we?

No sound from rear/ surround speakers on Bose V20


Yes, very easy and cheap if you get it from the right place. Fiber Optic going from the output of the device to the input of the receiver. If your lucky enough to have an input/output fiberoptic in your tv, run the fiber from the device to the tv input, fiber the output of the tv to the receiver so not only are you getting the device full surround sound, but you'll also get better TV surround sound for those that are made with Dolby pro logic II sound. (pretty much all the newer movies and shows)

Unable to get ps3 to play when hooked to receiver


The audio inputs on the receiver need to be set to receive the Optical signal on the switch you set the ps3 to. ie Game, DVD, AUX. Each switch needs to be set to receive the audio signal coming into it. Usually on the remotes setup feature.

Connecting bose 321 system to lg hd flat screen,bose receiver plays fm am ok threw speakers.tv will not play threw bose speakers.bose dvd plays sound ,but no picture


You will need a Component Video Cable
Connect the Red Green and Blue Connections from the TV to the Bose.

if your audio is coming from the TV, also connect stereo audio from the TV's audio out to the "TV" input on the bose.

if you want to hook up other devices (VCR, BluRay, etc) the video will go directly to the TV and audio will go directly to the Bose

No sound from Yamaha HTR-5990


You must be sure that you also have "audio" cables connected to the receiver to make this all work. As far as the TV is concerned, the same applies....accordianman
