How Do I Assign the Optical Input on My Old Bose System?

As we have discussed in earlier posts, you can connect a new TV to your older Bose system such as a Lifestyle 48 if your TV has an optical digital audio output and if your Bose system has an optical digital audio input. This will allow the apps on your TV to play through the older Bose system. To do this, you will need to assign the optical digital input to a source on your console such as the “AUX” input. This will allow the TV audio to play through your Bose system when watching the apps on your TV. To assign the optical source, press the System button on the remote control. If the system menu does not appear on your TV, be sure the correct TV input is selected. Next, scroll right and select Media Center then scroll down to select Optical Source. Press the Right arrow button to select the optical source options and then scroll up or down to select the button (Aux) on your remote that will choose optical audio. To play the TV apps audio, use your TV remote to select the app and then select “AUX” with the Bose remote.
