Hello, What's the mode number off of the back of the TV? What's the make and model of the cable box? How is the cable box connected to the TV? How is the TV connected to the Bose?The reason for all of these questions is there are about a half dozen ways the equipment can be connected, and depending on models- they will also have different jacks/connections.
