Question about Televison & Video

I have a sony kdl-46hx803 with a bose lifestyle v20 system - there does not appear to be a suitable 'sony' code listed on the Bose setup for the remote programming - do you have any solution - perhaps an alternative manufacturer code that may work?

Hello there,

The reason that it's sometimes possible to get remotes codes for other brands to work with some TVs is because some TV brands use a variety of different manufacturers for their panels/screens and or components. It's rare for this trick to work with Sony TVs.

However, some Sony LED panels 46" and larger are made by Sharp, so the codes for Sharp may be worth trying. However, this isn't exactly a Sharp TV with a Sony badge, so the simple and honest answer to your question is probably not. It's likely that this TV is too new and the remote wasn't pre-programmed with codes (i.e. IR flash patterns) for this TV.

Give me a short while to investigate this particular TV and I'll give you a more definitive answer.

Regards,
BElectric

    The panel in the 40" version of this TV is manufactured at the Sony/Samsung joint manufacturing facility. I could not confirm 100% who made the panel in your 46" version, but it is either made by Sharp or Sony/Samsung.



    The TV may also use other Sharp or Samsung hardware, so I'd suggest trying codes for these 2 brands. If none of the code for Sharp or Samsung (or Sony) work, the Bose remote definitely isn't going to work with your TV.



    I would still expect this TV to use a Sony code regardless of who made the panel, but the other codes are worth a try as a last resort. I think the reality is, your TV is simply too new and the Bose remote does not have a code / flash pattern for it.



    Hope this helps. Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.



    Regards,

    BElectric

Hi cjdwood,
If you've already tried the code on the list but still the unit didn't respond on the remote, there is no chance that it will function on your unit. Remote control has a limitation and only compatible brand and model will be access. I've would advice you to replace the remote control with bose brand also.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

You can connect an iPod to your Bose V30 using an ipod dock, or simply with a mini-jack (headphone jack) to RCA cable plugged into your V30's Audio-In ports.

I hope that helps.

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.
