Hello, Bose does not make a Lifestyle "AV 17" according to their listed models. Can you please check that model number and postback?

Sorry Av18 series III

Thanks for the reply, I'm looking that up now.

Sorry for the delay. Okay that Bose remote does not need any programming to work with the AV 18 system as it's code set is directly for the Bose unit right out of the box. So that said, I'm thinking the Bose system itself may be having issues picking up remote commands. Can you tell me what the original problem was with the remote you had?

Also, offhand I need to know if the buttons on the AV system itself are working to operate it as they should?
