Re: Connect Amazon Fire TV Stick with Lifestyle 35 series IV

Hi futhrevu, 

 

Thank you for your post. The VS-2 Video Enhancer was created as an add-on for many DVD-based Bose Lifestyle systems, that didn't already support High Definition Video (and it may have been included with your system when you originally purchased it). Though HDMI certainly passes both video and audio through a single cable, the VS-2 was engineered to only handle the video portion. Separate audio connections still need to be made to the Lifestyle system's media console. 

 

Since the Amazon Firestick does not have any additional audio connections, you'd need to connect this device directly to your TV, instead of the VS-2. You could then connect a digital optical cable between your TV and the Lifestyle console's optical input, to receive the Firestick audio from the TV. 

 

Please let us know if you have any additional questions! 

 

Best regards,

 

Brian

I would recommend purchasing an HDMI video audio splitter like AVR Key 18Gbps, Egreat H10 and so on.
