Soundtouch 300, Non ARC TV and Echo Dot

Is there a way to connect my non ARC TV and a Echo Dot (without using Bluetooth) to the Soundtouch 300 sound bar?

Hey soundofbrad, 

 

Welcome to the Bose Community!

 

I'd be happy to assist you with your question today. Can you please confirm the Make/Model of your television so I can determine what options are available? 

 

Kind regards,

Thanks, soundofBrad.

 

It looks like your TV has a Composite (red/white/yellow) input on it. I would recommend using a stereo 3.5mm mini-jack to stereo RCA cable to connect the echo to the red/white composite inputs on your TV. If you set your TV input to Composite, you will be able to hear the Echo Dot through the SoundTouch 300. 

 

I have created a diagram to show how everything should be routed. I hope this helps.

Let me know if you need any further support. 

 

 

Kind regards,

Thank you for the help. The only issue with that setup is that if I speak to Alexa I can't here the response unless I change the input on the tv. Not optimal. Again thanks
