Hi, thank you for contacting My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

Can you use the power switch on the Bose Cinemate without the new remote ?

Or is it a remote-operation only device/system (unfortunately, if so) ? in which case, is the problem basically a lack of response to the remote(s) ?
