First, you need to run the coax cable from your satellite dish to the "cable in" input on the back of your satellite receiver, not the Bose. If your satellite receiver has an HDMI OUT, and if the Bose has an HDMI IN,run hdmi OUT from the rec. to the Bose IN, then keep your HDMI connection from the Bose OUT to the TV IN as is. Make sure you've selected the correct input on the TV menu. As it is right now, you're not delivering any video signal at all to the TV!! -only audio(red and white). There are a couple other ways, but they won't give you the same quality. I assume this is HD, right? If you CAN do it this way (i.e. if you have enough HDMI ins and outs), it's the best possible hookup and you won't need the composite (red, white and yellow) at all. By the way, it's the yellow connector that carries the video signal; the red and white are audio left and right. If you can't hook it up all HDMI, disconnect the "separate cable" (I'm not sure what that is or what kind of cable or what it's for)and plug in the yellow connector into video IN on the Bose.
You need to buy a Bose VS 2, video enhancer. Your cable/sattelite, vcr and aux connect to the VS 2 and the VS2 connects one HDMI cable to the TV. The VS2 then upconverts DVDs played on the lifestyle through the VS2/HDMI.
You are right I checked the Manual online and there is no Optical in.
The other tech was right in suggesting that, Cause it would be the next best thing to HDMI.
It only has 1 Analog Audio in, So what I would Recommend is Plugging in all of your Devices to your TV and then 1 Audio cable from your TV to The Bose input.
Although this will NOT transfer Digital Audio to Analog Audio.
This means if you are going in HDMI then the Audio would most likely NOT transfer to the Bose.
In this case you would have to hook up a set of Audio cables (Red and White) From the Blu-Ray to the Bose along with the HDMI.
This will leave you with only Audio from the Blu-ray through the Bose.
To go a step further you can purchase an Audio Splitter (or Video) then plug your Devices into the Splitter and then 1 cable out to the Bose and just Switch the Input along with the TV.
The Bose VS2 does not pass the HDMI audio. Must connect analog or digital audio direct to the corresponding audio input on the media center. Also, verify you have loaded laster Console Software revision provided by Bose.
