I am looking to connect my Lifestyle 48 system to a two-year old Sony XBR-65A1E TV. I also added a Bose Soundbar 700 with Surround sound speakers. The core problem for me is how can I connect the Lifestyle 48 to the HDMI-equipped Sony. The TV has only four HDMI ports which are taken up by a set-top box, an Apple 4k TV, and a Sony UHD Blue-ray player, with the Bose Soundbar 700 taking up the single HDMI/ARC output. The essence of the problem is that I have no obvious way to connect the Lifestyle 48 to the smart TV, so that I can use the music system with the endless hours great music that I have collected over the years. I added a Soundtouch Wireless Link adapter to the mix, thinking I might be able to avoid the wiring diagram nightmare that seems to lead nowhere. Somehow, I need to get the Lifestyle 48 to connect with the TV so that I can use the internal DVD and a TV picture to control the Bose console setup features.
I have studied this problem for sometime without finding a clearcut solution. I really need a good answer from the 200k plus community membership. Thank you!
