Question about Samsung Audio Players & Recorders
It would be simpler to buy a new remote for the 321 system. Spares for this system are not very expensive. A remote will probably cost less than £20.

SOURCE: Bose 321 Remote not working
Pull off the front panel, be carefull there is a ribbon attached. Detach the ribbon. There are 2 ribbons attached to the front panel, one that leads to the IR (remote sensor) and other for the controls on the top of the unit.
Most likely the ribbon that goes to the IR sensor detached itself, this is common if the unit is dropped etc. Insert the ribbons (2) re-attach the front panel and the remote should work fine. You'll notice some tape on the IR ribbon, I suggest using some stronger tape, BOSE tape thats not very good.
This happened to me on my 3-2-1 GS II system and fixed it.

Very simple. Red and White RCAs into any available input on the back of the 321. If the PS3 A/V cable can't separate the audio from the video (yellow RCA) by length of cable then get an RCA extension.
You can also connect this digitally with an optical cable (better sound) but you need to assign the optical cable to an input from your system menu. Your system menu can only be displayed on the TV from the video out of the 321. Go to "media center" and then down to "optical source"

-If this happens on all DVDs, then this may need to be repaired (Bose will repair this for free if this is the case- they can test it too)
-If this happens on some or most DVDs, you can try a firmware update. Call Bose at 800-367-4008 and tell them about this. Request the most recent software/firmware update disc.
If you haven't already, just try resetting this first. (unplug the power cord from the acoustimass module for about 30+ seconds and try again)
If this happens primarily on rentals or home-made dvds, an update will most likely fix the problem.

Replace the batteries from the remote control. Press and hold the TV button on remote for 5 seconds. If the red light shines bright, your remote is OK since it is showing it's programmable side. If unit still won't go on using the remote, reboot the whole system by unplugging the power cord and other wire from the Subwoofer. Wait one minute, then replug all and see if the system displays BOSE 321 in front when re-connected. If so, try the remote and if that doesn't work, your dead, the Infra red communication device from the unit to the remote is busted inside the unit and needs to be returned to the company like mine!!!!!
