Sorry - I can't help, but I have the same problem. Expensive bit of kit for such basic problems.

I have the LS650 and Apple TV4 and it works without any issues. What do you mean when you say it doesnt recognise it? If your apple TV is in standby when you turn on the LS650 it might not connect. On the odd occassion this happens to me I just move to another source then back again. I think its something to do with how CEC works or doesnt.

My ATV4 was not recognized when I first installed my LS650. The day after, the LS650 proposed me a firmware update, and now, when I add the atv4, it is recognized without any problems. I suppose it was an old firmware when I bought it.

 

thanks anyway!

... by "Not Works" I mean that the controller doesn't control the ATV. It doesn't turn on and the up/down & menu buttons don't function. The ATV does play through the 650 etc when controlled by the apple remote.

Have you tried to setup CEC with the alternative method ? For me it works like that.

Hi - thanks for the suggestion, finally got it working using my solution method 2 (where solution method 1 is "Hit It Hard").

 

My number 2 method, learned from many years of experience, is do nothing - and sure enough, it now works after 4 weeks!

 

Whether it's had an auto update or something I don't know, but now the Bose remote fully controls my ATV - which given that there's only 3 buttons shouldn't be difficult.
