Hi all, love my LS 600, but...has any one figured out how to watch tv while playing music with bluetooth from phone? I don't want the audio from the tv show, just the video. Any help would be appreciated, thank you

Is the TV the source, or are you playing from cable/Set top box/appletv etc.
If the TV itself is the source, you just set it to whatever channel you want, and use the Bose remote to switch to BT.
If the source is going through the Lifestyle, then no you can't. It will only play one source at a time.
The only way around it would be to plug the source directly into the TV and have the sound return to the LIfestyle via the HDMI (ARC) or the optical so that you can BT when you want and play TV sound whenever you want.
Your in luck your Amazing Bose System will allow for just what you want for a listening panacea. God bless America and the great Bose company for bring us altogether in this fantastic and free way.

You tell them JIM (FYI you guys are angering JIM, he's an angry ELF today). Please NO political talk as Jim has stated, this a Bose Forum where people have congregated to discuss Bose products and issues that (very frequently arise).
To the OP, a great app to try to listen to music is tidal, also try apple music as they offer an incredibly large libray and if you are in the APPLE ecosystem then its a smart choice.
