Notice

The Bose Community Forum was launched at a time when robust online support was not available for Bose customers. Over the past several years we have added new online service channels that provide a more interactive and complete digital experience. Additionally, we have enhanced the My Bose Account capabilities to deliver a more personalized and self-service experience. As a result, Bose has made the decision to close Community Forum for Consumer electronics products on September 30th. The Bose Pro portion of the Community will still operate as usual.


Please visit our support homepage to experience one of our many other digital service channels or simply use your Community log-in credentials to sign in to your My Bose Account to view your orders and view support options.


Thank you to all who have contributed and benefited from interacting in our Community. We look forward to continuing to serve you online.


Regards,
Bose Customer Service Team

Vintage Lifestyle (r) needs a new remote

I need a new remote for my Vintage Lifestyle (r) DVD Home Entertainment Center; AV48 Media Center 

ANY SUGGESTIONS?

It would be a plus to work with my ROKU, and Sharp 3D tv.

Re: Vintage Lifestyle (r) needs a new remote

I'm still using a Lifestyle 18 Series III. The secret is to run everything through your TV first and then run a digital optical cable from your TV to your Bose receiver. This method insures only digital audio (up to 5.1 channels) is being used by your Bose system. I also use a Logitech Harmony to control everything with one remote.

I have made a guide to help people connect their AV48 receiver to modern HD equipment. I also link to a universal remote in that guide.

 

There is a potential problem though. If you cannot access the menu to change the optical settings you will have to use an optical to coax converter to get a 5.1 signal. I mention it in option 2.

 

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