Hi Bose Community,
We have an aging Lifestyle 28 Series II system that is connected to a Panasonic TH-42PW7 TV via a Panasonic TU PT600 Tuner Box. Since Analogue TV is no longer a thing, we have a Set Top Box connected via composite to the Lifestyle system.
Problem is the system is slowly starting to fall apart, our TV provider now requires us to get one of their TV boxes that is HDMI / Component Only. We want to connect an Apple TV but the speakers work fine and the TV is still functioning.
1. What options do we have? Can we upgrade the Lifestyle 28 ii whilst keeping the speakers and Acoustimass? (Purchased Nov. 2004).
2. Should I just invest in a Bose VS-2 Digital Converter, although I am not exactly sure how bose manages to create 1080p HDMI images over Composit connections (Does anyone actually know how this works?).
3. We buy a new TV, then just connect the Bose to the TV for Audio via Optical and connect everything else directly to the TV.
