Question about Bose 3·2·1 II System
I have a bose 3-2-1 system (series ii) with component, composite, and (1) optical input. I'm wondering what the best setup is: I have a bluray player, with red white yellow out and an optical out, a directv receiver with the same, an xbox, and a tv. What setup would provide the best quality? Should I plug everything into the TV, and then use an optical cable to the tv? Or who should get the optical cable, the bluray or the receiver? I'm new tho this, help would be greatly appreciated!
The problem turned out to be the TV itself. Somehow all the a/v and component cable inputs on the back of the TV got disabled. After finding then consulting the TV manual online (the TV is about 8 years old), we found there was a way to reset the TV to its original factory settings. Voila, the a/v and component cable inputs were enabled again, and everything worked correctly afterwards.

SOURCE: No surround sound
It sounds like the speaker wires are mixed up or maybe a setting on the reciever is wrong. Verify your speakers are properly connected. you test speakers using a 9 volt battery or smaller.

two things can be wrong. remote control or the reciever it self. 1st take the batterry out of the remote and unplug reciever for 1 minute or so. second put the batterry back in the remote and plug the reciever back in and see if any cahnges take place. make sure the battery is good and strong. if nothing take place accept TV and VCR is working from the remote than it would be your reciever IR sensor unit defective and seem to be a common problems with the IR sensor unit although bose will not acknowlege it. there is nothing you can do yourself without electronic background to fix it and trying to fix it your self might ruin the unit. I would contact the manufacture and ship it off to have it fix, after all the unit aint cheap and its worth it to get it fix. hope that help some .good luck

Sounds like you might be out of luck with the older 3-2-1 system. I am in the same boat, and am thinking I will only be able to utilize the "audio out" on the back of my Samsung LCD, and run that to the "aux in" on the Bose 3-2-1. This of course will not allow me to utilize the 3-2-1's DVD player, but by using a seperate DVD player, such as a Blu-Ray hooked to the LDC TV, the video will make it to the screen, and then the audio should make it through the Bose 3-2-1 speakers. Probably not the "best" solution, but one that I am going to attempt.

Better is a subjective term. Simpler vs complex is more accurate. I'd go for the separate components if conspicuity is NOT required and to allow unlimited future growth. Sub/sats have their place but nothing beats having full-range speakers alll around the room with some real horsepower to push them.
