Thank you for your inquiries. I'm sorry to hear that you are experiencing these issues.
1. Is your Lifestyle console connected to your TV's HDMI/ARC input? If so, be sure that CEC (Anynet+) is enabled within your TV settings. Next, try adjusting the Lifestyle system's CEC settings. I'd recommend toggling between Default On, and Alternate On, to see if either allows control of your TV.
2. It is certainly odd that the system isn't detecting the Ethernet connection. Could you try the following Ethernet setup steps using the SoundTouch app? We'll need to remove and re-add the system from your SoundTouch account:
3. Great question! This is because the Lifestyle 600's Bluetooth feature is its own source, separate from the system's HDMI sources. For example, if you have a cable/satellite receiver connected to one of the console's HDMI inputs; when this input is actively selected, the video will be passed from the cable/satellite receiver, through the Lifestyle console, then to the TV. Audio will be passed to the console, and then to the Bose speakers. When you switch to the Bluetooth source, the console is no longer actively focusing on the cable/satellite HDMI source and will cease to pass video to the TV. If you were to connect your source devices directly to your TV instead of the Bose console, the video would likely continue to play on the screen (since the console is no longer in the middle to support video pass-through).
I hope this helps!
I have posted here regarding this pairing of the remote.
regarding the bluetooh/soundcloud, since these are mainly audio inputs, I dont see why the video to the TV should be changed. it just makes more sense when someone wants to listen to bluetooh/soundcloud while watching TV you dont want the video to change.
