Trying to connect audio chromecast to my bose soundbar

I’ve bought an audio chromecast & trying to use it my Bose cinemate 1SR soundbar using an optical cable. I can connect to the audio chromecast but there is no sound. Can anyone help me? I know the audio chromecast works with other speakers using the stereo cable but no luck with my Bose speaker.

Hi @SarahS

 

I have Chromecast Audio connected to my SoundTouch Systems at the moment too. 

 

The only suggestion I have is maybe to turn the volume up on your system. Sometimes, the audio is quieter on Chromecast/Bluetooth streaming. 

 

I hope this helps

 

Take care,

 

David

An earlier topic may answer the question.  Whil the 1SR looks like it has an AUX input, it's a secondary connection for the primary input.  Hence if you have TV connected you cannot switch to the second input.  You may be better with a Chromecast attached to the TV.
