How Can I connect my new TV to my Bose system? Part #1
During the holiday season, many of our clients will be purchasing new smart TV’s and will be asking is my new TV compatible with my Bose system and how do I connect it to my Bose system. The new smart TV’s are compatible with most Bose systems. How you connect the new TV depends on which Bose system you have. If you have one of the newer Bose Home Theater systems with Soundtouch streaming, your video components are connected directly to your Bose system’s console/receiver and then to your TV via an HDMI cable. Simply connect this HDMI cable to one of the HDMI inputs on your new TV. If you plan on using the smart built in apps on your new TV such as Netflix, Hulu, or U-Tube, etc., you may need to connect an audio cable from the TV’s audio output to one of the audio inputs on your Bose console/receiver. This is necessary to carry the audio portion of the TV’s smart apps to the Bose system. If your new TV has an ARC HDMI input, it is not necessary to connect this audio cable. Next, week, we will review how to connect your new TV to an older Bose system. We invite you to visit our website @ www.wbsouth.com.
