Making audio and video connections

You might already have a high definition DVD player, cable/satellite box or some other audio/video device connected to your TV. To have the sound from that device play through your Bose® system, you will need to make audio connections and keep the current video connections as you have them.

There are three possible output connections on your audio/video device that are compatible with your Bose system:

Analogue

Digital coax, also may be marked as S/PDIF

Digital optical

If your device has all three options, choose either digital coax or optical for the best audio quality.

Choose the type of audio connection you want to make from your audio/video device to the Bose system and follow the steps below:

Making audio and video connections

On the back of your audio device, insert one end of the RCA plugs into the AUDIO OUT jacks. The jacks are white for left and red for right.

Insert the other end of the RCA plugs into the Aux audio in jacks on the Bose media centre. The jacks are white for left and red for right.

On the Bose remote, press Aux. The display will show "Aux" as the selected source of audio.

On the remote, use VOLUME + and - to control the overall sound of your product.

Note: If another device occupies the Aux input, use the Video 1 or Video 2 input on the back of the Bose media centre and select that source.

Note: If another device occupies the Aux input, use the Video 1 or Video 2 input on the back of the Bose media centre and select that source.

Making a digital coax connection

On the back of your audio device, insert one end of the digital coax cable to digital AUDIO OUT. This might be marked as S/PDIF and also may be orange or black in colour.

Insert the other end of the digital coax cable into the black Aux Audio IN jacks on the Bose media centre. This is the bottom jack marked D for digital.

On the Bose remote, press Aux. The display will show "Aux" as the selected source of audio.

On the remote, use VOLUME + and - to control the overall sound of your product.

Note: A digital signal will override an analogue signal when connected to the same input.

Making a video connection

The Bose system has a single video input to allow one device to pass video through to the TV.

To pass a video signal through a Bose system, follow these steps:

Connect a video cable (composite or S-video) to the video output jack of the external device.

Connect the other end of the cable (composite or S-video) to the video input jack on the Bose system connection panel.

Connect another video cable of the same type to the video output jack of the Bose system and to an appropriate video input jack on the TV.

Note: The same type of cable (composite or S-video) must be used for both input and output. The Bose system will not convert the video signal.
