PCM means it thinks you have a digital cable hooked between the TV and Bose (most TV's don't have digital audio outs...). You will have to use the menus to change the TV input to use the ANALOG cables (assuming thats what you're using...).

Trying to hook up Bose AV 321 media system to Samsung LED TV model


You can use a Optical to Analog audio adaptor (found all over the internet for under $30). You'll also need an optical cable that goes between the adaptor and TV. Be sure to set the audio output on the TV settings to PCM audio output, otherwise there will be no output.

I have a Toshiba flatscren, just baught a Bose cinemate GS series 2 sound sytem, and only one speaker works, Returned it, got a new one and it does the same thing, It must be a settings issue on my TV ?? ...


The left audio channel pre-amplifier in your TV is not working. Fixing that is a job for a technician with an oscilloscope, or else you would have to replace the main board in the TV.

If you connect another device (CD or MP3 player to your Bose sound system, I expect you will hear both speakers playing the sound from the other device.

How can I hook up my Bose cinemate on my Philips HD tv when no there is no Audio out and I want to use it for my dvd player, cable box, and video systems?


You don't need to send audio TO a TV. I's a TV, not a source of anything. Many of us use monitors (no TV speakers). The Bose speakers are presumably superior to the TV speakers so whatever the TV is watching (cable/sat/dvd) shuld have its own audio.


Page 11.

If your TV does not have any audio output jacks, you can connect the CineMate™ speaker

system to the audio output jacks of another source, such as a DVD player or cable/satellite

box. However, you will hear sound only from the connected source through your CineMate
speakers.

System echos when dvd is in. When I mute the Bose sytem I can hear the TV sound without the echo.


The echo you hear is the audio delay between your TV speakers and Bose speakers. Muting (or lowering the volume) on the TV will eliminate the echo. Some TVs have a setting to turn of TV speakers entirely, allowing you to listen to your TVs audio strictly through your Bose system.

Plasma Television Connection


hmm a bit...complicated but if they all use HDMI then one cord is all you need going to the tv from the bose sound system while any other HDMI connection should directly go into the bose sound system or if the dvd player uses RCA then RCA sound should go to the sound system and video directly to the tv

PCM 2.0


I had the same problem with my 321 system. The fix is in the cable box settings. You want to change the Digital Out on the cable box..my choices were HDMI....Dolby Digital..and None. Choose Dolby Digital and it will show up on your Bose 321 display. I also have my cable box connected to my bose system via optical digital cable...and a digital coaxel cable from my dvr to my bose. Change that output setting on my cable box took care of the PCM 2.0 problem for me.
