Customer Question

I got rid of my cable tv, just hooked up to an antenna. How do I hook up my Lifestyle Bose Entertainment system now? Instructions do not show hook up with just an antenna as your input, no cable or satellite. Do I still need to use the video enhancer somehow even though my antenna goes directly into the tv?

Also what model and version Bose Lifestyle do you have? There are more than 20 different kinds of Bose Lifestyle's.

So without more information, here is what I can tell you...

Most Tv's have audio output jack(s). It can be analog RCA red/white or analog 3.5 mm stereo "headphone" jack or can be digital optical output. So plug the audio out of the Tv to the audio In on the Bose. There may be some configuration in the tv menu to enable the audio out and/or disable the tv built in speakers. If you need more detail that this then we need the model information as previously mentioned.
