Bose product name

Lifestyle 48

I am trying to hook up google chromecast to my system for the surround sound experience. Is there anyway to accomplish this or am I out of luck. Was on the phone with support and they told me that it was either chromecast or cable not both for sound. I find that hard to believe but is that true? Any help would be greatly appreciated. We did try an adapter but that doesn’t seem to work either.
Thanks Tim

I made a guide to help you connect that and other modern devices to your Lifestyle DVD system. In this case, I think Option 3 would work nicely, though you should at least check out Option 4.

 

I hope that this helps solve your problem. Let us know what you ended up doing 🙂

Nice. That is one out of many HDMI switches that would work with your AV48. Let us know how it works out for you 🙂
