Connecting Lifestyle 48 to Sky and Apple TV



I have just inherited a Lifestyle 48 home theatre system with VS-2 video enhancer from my father.  I can get pictures through it but no sound.


I have connected my Sky Q box via HDMI and my Apple TV via HDMI. Is there a way I can get sound for both to run through the Lifestyle system so I can enjoy the surround sound of the system?


Thank you!

Hello Scott_Taylor, 


Thanks for reaching out to Bose. 


The VS2 is designed to handle video, but not audio. (This product came out when HDMI was not as commonplace as it is now.)


For the best experience, you may be much better off having everything HDMI-based connected directly to your TV, then connect the TV to the soundbar via an optical cable. 


Be sure to let me know how you get on.


Kind regards,
