Question about Bose Lifestyle V20 System - black Theater System

2 Answers

I just bought my V20, I plugged it using a HDMI from my dvd to my v20 for the image, and a digital cable for the sound. My image works perfectly but I have no sound. I noticed that the light under my subwoofer was switching green-orange. Any ideas on what the problem could be??

I also had some problems with sound when i was switching between channels of my satellite receiver. I was loosing sound. Local Bose dealer told me this could be due to the inconsistent versions of HDMI supported by the connected devices. You may want to connect sound via a optical cable if there is one on your DVD and select optical as audio priority of your DVD connection on system V20.

Hi - Don't know about the switching LEDs but there is no reason to be using both the HDMI cable AND a digital coax cable to the V20.

You should have a single HDMI (carries video and 5.1 audio) cable from the DVD to the DVD input in the V20.

I have a Bose v20 when i use my Panasonic DVD hd recorder it doesn't sort through if it Dolby or 5.1 it stay on 2.0 i have connected it with hdmi & optical cable


Hi Peter,You will need to check the input menus of both the Panasonic and Bose System and tell each of the units that they can output and accept 5.1 channel Look for wording such as PCM(2 Channel),DTS (5.1), and Dolby digital (5.1) AC3 (5.1). Sometimes inputs can be set up as auto, or analogue. I reckon that one of the two is setup to be fixed on PCM
Good Luck
Hope this helps

Hi, I have an error 180 message in my bose lyfestyle V20


"Error 180" is either very bad (video board is defective) or just a temporary fluke and meaningless.. Best case-> the "error 180" could be fixed by a simple reset (unplug the DC power cable from the media center for about 30+ seconds). Worst case-> this will have to be sent to Bose for repair. Try re-seating any HDMI or component cables at the back panel as well. If you can see your system menu (by pressing 'system' on the remote) then the video board may be fine. If not, still reset it before determining anything else. Also, if the input device (DVD player) is connected with HDMI, and the output (the V20) is component.. this canl cause the error as well.

Bose Lifestyle V20 Error 180


Below is solution from an earlier post, I'm trying it out now as I have the same issue, system bought in Jan 09. I have received and installed the latest update from Bose recently, now this. Will call Bose tomorrow to fix if they can't they will be getting it back.

We disabled the power cord from the back of the media console (where the HDMI cables connect) and left it off for a minute or two.

Powered the media console back on and it is working as expected.

Was told by the Bose tech that the common reason for this issue is due to the use of the HDMI cables that have a propritary security protocol that is used between the media console and the component it is attached to (ie TV, Cable/Sat, BluRay ...ect).

I asked if there was a BIOS upgrade if it was indeed a "handshaking" issue and was told there was not one (yet).

If one becomes available, it will be shipped via mail on a CD\DVD that can be used in a CD\DVD player that is connected to the media console using the HDMI cable.

No sound from rear speakers of Bose V20


Are you useing a digital coaxil cable? or optical cable?(you will need one of these connections to get 5.1 surround!) the white /red rca jacks will not do the 5.1 surround! (back speakers)

Cannot connect iPod to Bose Lifestyle V20 System


On the side of the V20 control box (with all the inputs/outputs on the back), there is a small jack for an input directly from the headphone output from your Ipod - so all you need is a male/male ended cord (like the one used in vehicles with AUX inputs) and plug in - SIMPLE!
