I had this same problem and it was due to their instructions which do not adequately explain the setup procedure.

On my own, I was successful in programming volume up but that was all. I assumed that for volume down I would hold the power button and the VOLUME DOWN button and wait for the flashing light just as I had for volume up. Problem is, you never get a flashing light.

Today, I spoke with a rep from Boston Acoustics who patiently explained that step one of the instructions has to be done the same way each time as it is the step that puts the soundbar into programming mode.

It is only at step 2 that things change.

The solution is to hold the power button and the Volume Up button every time in order to get the system into programming mode. Once the light is flashing, in order to program Volume Down, you then hold the Volume Down button until the light goes solid. Once the light goes solid, then press the volume down button on your remote 4 times slowly. Works like a charm.

Works the same way to program the mute button. Follow step one to get the unit in programming mode. Once the light is flashing, hold down only the mute button until the light goes solid. When the light goes solid, press the mute button slowly 4 times.


OBTW, this was programmed with a Logitech Harmony 650 remote unit.

Was able to program the original TV remote with the above instructions, but not the Harmony 650 so-called universal remote. Very very frustrating. Any other ideas to try?

I HAVE A 50" EMERSON T.V. AND I HOOKED UP A SOUND BAR TO IT AQND I DON'T HAVE NO SOUND


Ensure that the output from the TV is feeding the soundbar. Use Settings/Sound/Output in the Main TV Menu.

Can't get sound out of Boston soundbar when hooked up to 46" LCD Philips? Soundbar works fine when hooked directly to iPod.


You may have to go into the settings on the tv and turn off the internal speakers in order to get audio out of the jacks on back.

Programming time warner remote to boston tvee volume


I had just about given up on programming my Time Warner universal remote with my Boston Soundbar until a mental lightbulb came on. This is a two step process. Step 1: Program your Time Warner remote (I have CLIKR-5, instructions available for other models at timewarner.com) Using Pre-Programmed 3-digit Code method -Turn on soundbar - Press device button (I chose AUX) and OK/Select simultaneously until device button stays lit. - Point remote control toward the soundbar and enter code (447 for Boston Acoustics) - Press the device button again to store the code. The TW instructions say you should now be able to turn the device off to verify that it works, but this is not true for the soundbar. Hang in there with me. Step 2: Program your remote from the Boston Soundbar. - Press the power button and the volume up button simultaneously until the indicator light flashes orange. Here's where the instructions provided with the soundbar fail to explain how to do this. Each button is individually programmed into the TW remote. What you have done so far is enable the remote to accept the programming. - Volume Up: press the volume up button on the soundbar while it is flashing, the light should become steadily orange. - While holding the remote steady about a foot away from the soundbar, slowly press the volume up button on the TW remote four times. The orange light should flicker each time you do, turning green when completed. - Volume Down, Mute, Power: repeat the steps for Volume Up, except press the button on the soundbar you wish program to the TW remote while the soundbar is flashing orange. It should become steady before you press the corresponding button on the TW remote. Good luck, I hope this helps. -Deidre.

Tvee model 25 wont shut off light goes red and after 3 seconds flips back on


The TVee 25 will turn itself on whenever there is an input. If there is no audio input it will shut itself off or you can manually shut it off. Or, you can select an input that has nothing connected to it.

No sound in sound bar and subwoofer


It could be that the unit is bad, it could also be that the device providing the input is bad. I doubt the cables are bad, but that could be also. Could it be possible that your television has a menu setting that turns the outputs off and on?

Even without the sub, you still get sound through the Bar.

Only way to test it is, different cables, alternate device to provide input for sound.

Not enough IR range to use remote


Get yourself a very thin and small screwdriver. The type that comes in the eyeglass repair kits. Remove the cloth/plastic grill from the front of the sound bar. Locate the IR sensor in the center of the bar. Pry the dark red filter off the IR sensor and leave it off.

Problem solved, greatly increases range. I have read that there is a clear replacement cover you can buy but whats the point?
