I have a VP42 HDTV and just received a Bose Cimemate Series II sound system. When I hooked everything up according to the manual I get no sound. I attached the Optic cable as suggested and still no sound. The only thing connected to the TV is the cable box. What am I missing?
Hi and welcome to justanswer.I`m going to help you with your setup but first i will have a few questions;Is the cable box connected to the tv with a HDMI cable ?Did you connect your optical cable to the tv`s optical out ?
The first question - I have no idea. There are 4 cables connected from the cable to the TV.
4 cables ??
And where did you connect the optical cable that goes to the Bose, is it at the back of the tv ?
Yes, were the optical outlet is at.
O.k then i would have something for you to try if you have easy access to the back of the equipment
Take the optical cable off the back of the tv and connect it directly into the cable box, it also has an optical output
Okay, one sec please
no problem, take your time
That did it. Perfect.
Glad to hear that, the reason it was not working is because your bose was expecting a surround sound signal and the tv`s optical out will give at best a streo sound when connected to a HD cable box
sorry for the typo`s "stereo sound"
Got it, wish they tell you that in the manual. Thank you so much.
