Bose SoundTouch App should allow to switch source

I have a CineMate 520 and a SoundTouch 300. The app only allows to activate SoundTouch source and Bluetooth on the ST300. I bought a SoundTouch controller hoping to find input option and had no luck
Bose, please please add an input option to the App, which receives frequent updates
Thanks in advance

Re: Bose SoundTouch App should allow to switch source

Hi cregones,

 

Welcome to the community forum and thank you for posting. Are you looking to play audio from the HDMI IN socket of the SoundTouch 300? If so, it is possible to enable it from within the SoundTouch app.

 

To enable or disable the HDMI IN Direct Audio setting, follow these steps:

  1. Open the SoundTouch app
  2. Select Menu
  3. Select Settings
  4. Select Speaker Settings
  5. Select the SoundTouch 300 system name
  6. Select Advanced Setup
  7. Select HDMI IN Direct Audio
    1. Once enabled, in the HDMI IN Source Button section, chose which button on the remote that will activate the HDMI input on the soundbar.
    2. When disabled, the remote button chosen to activate the HDMI input will no longer perform this function.

If I misunderstood your request, please let me know.

 

Best regards,

Thank you for your reply cregones,

 

Are we trying to switch to the Bluetooth source on your Cinemate 520?

 

Warm Regards,

No, I am trying to switch from SoundTouch to HDMI

Once you are in SoundTouch, the only way to go back to any HDMI source is to use the original remote control

I would like to be able to control input with the App

Re: Bose SoundTouch App should allow to switch source

Thank you for your clarifying cregones,

 

Currently, you are only able to control the HDMI source by using your remote control, so you are correct about that. There is not a feature within the SoundTouch app to allow you to perform this function, and we do apologise for that.

 

I would recommend keeping an eye out for any future SoundTouch app updates - which may implement this feature.

Let me know if you have any further queries or questions.

 

Warm Regards,
