Purchased a house 6 months ago that already had a BOSE AV38 Lifestyle System installed along with a PS38 Powered Speaker System which are linked together.
I have ceiling speakers installed in 5 rooms and 5.1 system installed in the lounge.
I am trying to get sound out of the 5.1 speakers on all of my devices.
I have the following.
Samsung D7000 55" LED Smart TV
I want to be able to have sound come out of the 5.1 speakers when using Tivo and Playstaion. So far, I have only managed to get the sound to come from the AV38 when playing a DVD into it but it doesn't work with anything else. Here is how I have it configured. I also want to be able to use the normal TV Speakers when the AV38 is off.
TV--->Optical Out--->AV38 Optical IN
I read somewhere if I had the Optical cable from the TV to the AV38 no matter where the TV gets the sound from, it will play through the AV38 speakers but it doesn't.
I've tried changing my TV settings to "External Speakers" but this has not worked. I've changed the 'Optical Source" on the AV38 settings to "TV" but this didn't work either.
Your help and advice is much appreciated.
