Apple TV setup

Hi guys,

 

so I have a bose SoundTouch home theatre system - My question quite simply is, can you connect the Apple TV box (HDMI) to the bose console and stream the picture on the tv? Is the setup straight forward or would I have to configure this?

 

Any pointers would be appreciated

 

Thanks

Nish

Re: Apple TV setup

Hey Nish_D,

 

Thanks for letting us know that!

 

With the 520 system, you can indeed connect an Apple TV to your console, all you would need to do is connect it to one of the HDMI ports on the back of the console, then selecting the input on your remote. 

 

I hope this helps! Let me know how you get on with this!

Re: Apple TV setup

Does that Bose support 4K?  If not, you can always plug your Apple TV into one of the TV HDMI inputs.  It will send the sound to your Bose.

Re: Apple TV setup

Hi - thanks for the confirming.

 

So I brought the Apple TV box and managed to set it up all ok.

 

Only thing was the input source kept switching to back to TV whilst my Apple TV box was switched on. I have now disabled BOSE CEC setting and it works fine.
