HD-DVD (as well as BLU-RAY) DVDs can only be played on dedicated players. You can get Toshiba HD-A2 for $299 plus 5 free HD-DVD movies! (I think the offer is good till the end of the month).

Yes, but you wont be able to use the optical or coaxial cable. You will be using a 3.5mm to Stereo converter because theres only two input sources for the companion 5. Its either USB or 3.5mm input jack.
The Companion 5 is designed to be used on a computer to get the most out of it but you can use it with any other source as long as you are able to plug it in via 3.5mm port.

Hope that helps.

How do I connect my Cable TV box, recordable DVD player,...

New postby Ginette » 26 Oct 2012, 18:26

How do I connect my Cable TV box, recordable DVD player, Bose Sound System to my HD TV?

I have one HD cable that will go from the cable box to the HD TV. My DVD is both a player & can record. I also have a Bose Sound System. All of the cables have me lost. A diagram would be helpful.
Here is what I've done so far:
Connected the Coaxial Cable from the wall to the Cable Converter box. Connected HDMI cable from TV to Cable Converter Box. I do not know how to connect the Sony DVD Recorder & the Bose sound system. I do not have any more HDMI imputs on the back of the DVD recorder or Bose sound system. I do have S-Video cables plus Monster cables but don't know what to do with them. Do I need another Coaxial Cable? Please give your answers in steps as I do not understand all of this. Thanks.
One other thing. My TV has many source selection imputs. i.e. Ant 1, Video 1, Video 2, Video 3, Color Stream HD1, Color Stream HD2, HDM 1, Ant 2.this has me more confused than ever.
My TV is a Toshiba 65" HD projection.

First, have the coaxial cable coming from the wall jack, going into the Input in the cable box. Then, have another coaxial cable going from the output in the cable box, to the input in the DVD recorder. Then, have another coaxial cable going from the output in the DVD recorder, to the input in your TV. Then, run a stereo RCA cable from the audio output in your TV, to the RCA input in your sound system. Now, the cable box and dvd recorder are on channel 3 or 4, and the sound will go through the sound system.

First thing, check out why Bose isn't worth the money:

Assuming you have one of the 5 Blu-ray Disc players on the planet which supports the latest HD audio formats, this Onkyo "all-in-one" system for $1,000 will make sure you take full advantage of the Blu-ray format. Click the link: ... ystems&p=i

For complete listing of those "5" Blu-ray Disc players which decode and transmit "HD audio" (DolbyTrueHD/DTSHD Master Audio), scroll down near the bottom of this link:

Digital audio input to Bose Home Theater. Should I connect..

New postby Roosevelt » 26 Oct 2012, 18:26

Digital audio input to Bose Home Theater. Should I connect from DISH DVR or DVD player - or combine?

Both the DVD/VCR player and the DISH satelite DVR have Digital audio outputs. Which shoild I conect to the Bose Home Theater or is it a matter of which we watch the most of? The DVD/VCR has a coax style hookup, the DISH DVR has the optical style.

I don't think that there as many TV programs with 5.1 Dolby Surround, but now all DVDs have surround.
If you have only one connection, connect the DVD. You can always connect the stereo out from the Dish and use virtual surround

No, infact you cannot dezone any DVD player without changing it internally, and the modern DVD players are almost impossible to do even with that. On the internet you may find sites promising codes to de-zone a DVD player, but most of these of frauds. It is true that on some older DVD players this way allowed, but by law it is no longer available. If you must get a Zone-Free DVD player than you'll have to buy one on the internet and hook it to your bose system. You will still get surround sound.

Bose 321 & Upconvert DVD player?

New postby Ardath » 26 Oct 2012, 18:26

I have a 1080P TV with two HDMI ports and optical etc. I'd like to hook my Bose 321 up for audio and a new DVD player with upconverting HDMI connection. What's the best way? My Bose system is the first generation and has no HDMI or component connections for that matter. It does have optical but not sure if it's digital or what (not familiar with that type).
Sounds good, do I hook up the Bose with the optical cable directly to the TV and the DVD with the HDMI cables directly to the TV?

If you are using the DVD player to play all of your movies you no longer need to connect the Bose video output to the TV except for initial set-up. The HDMI cable goes to the TV from the DVD player and the optical out from the DVD player goes to the optical input on the Bose system. This will send picture to the TV (sound too but don't use the TV speakers)and sound to the Bose. Also make sure that if you have a cable box, Sat box or just the TV for TV watching you send an audio signal from that device to the Bose too. This way you can get better TV sound as well.
The optical is for digital sound.

What does bose say about the problem it sounds like that the display itself is bad just as in a portable laptop you can replace the display buy itself but find a really good electronics shop that deals with these type of problems get an est to repair and go from there it sounds like you have been getting alot of MISinformation about what is wrong the dealer will take the unit out and send it to the repair shop dealers dont work on raidos the sublet them to the radio repair shop sooooooooo take it to the repair shop yourself and go from there hope this helps
