Connecting Bose Wave to TV-aux input jack same as headphone jack?

Hi, I'm trying to connect an old Bose Wave to my TV using the headphone jack from the TV to the aux jack on the Bose.

 

This is an old Bose, it doesn't have left and right RCA inputs, just a single jack.

 

Is the aux input jack a 3.5 mm jack? 

 

The cable doesn't seem to fit.

 

What else could it be?

 

Thanks.

Hello J1111,

 

Thanks for posting in the community, I am sorry to hear you are having issues with your Wave system. I would be more than happy to help, please could you tell which Wave system you have? Most of the Wave systems will use a 3.5mm jack so it should fit, perhaps it could be that you are using the wrong type of audio jack?

 

I hope this helps, let me know how you get on!

 

Kindest regards,

Hi Zoe,

 

I was just about to delete the topic because I had solved it.

 

Yes, the cord I was using I thought had 3.5 on both ends....but it didn't!

 

So I found another cord with 3.5 on both ends....and it works!

 

Thanks for the quick reply!
