Bose 700 remote

Can @bose cconfirm if a software update is coming out soon for the Bose 700 doundbar remote.


I just bought the whole 700 series including the soundbar, module 700 and rear 700 and although I am super satisfied with the sound, I am surprised with the controller. I am sure it has a potential to be a great device to have but it currently lacks functionality. Constantly the buttons are switch off on you have to stay shaking the remote for the buttons to light up. If you dont move for a second they will immediately turn off.


Also the lag is pain. You press the arrow key to the right for example once a it moves twice to the right instead.


I look forward to hearing from you with some positive feedback

Re: Bose 700 remote

Both issues are well known and have been reported many times on the forum.


For the light issue, don't expect anything... People have been complaining about it for more than a year. Nothing has happened, and will probably never happen.


For the lag / multiple press of button, apparently they have found the issue (This started with firmware 6.0.15). So hopefully a new firmware will come out soon now with a fix...
