Where I work we have a Bose Lifestyle 28 and a 3-2-1 running Bose-made demo videos. The thing is I am fed up with hearing the same repetative (boring as hell, too) demos that company supplies to play in these systems. Both systems are set up in permenant fixtures and their manuals were put away by our in store Bose rep (which I don't want finding out I'm doing this) which is hardly ever there. Also, whenever someone feels the need to press the pretty red flashing button to play the demos the speakers come on blasting people away while they cover their ears. I just want to turn those darn demos OFF. Anyone here know how?

I looked into that. Power cords run into the fixture. I figured there would be some sort of code or steps that I could take to disable the demo mode so I can put in a movie or something other than the Bose demo discs.

Check out this thread:

Scroll down to a post by Andrew Kay. He says he was able to get out of demo mode, but doesn't say how. Maybe you could PM him?

Actually it's pretty easy. Unplug the unit and wait ten seconds. plug it back it and jam repeatedly on the eject button. The demo disc will eject and you can put in anything you want. Just don't ask where I found that out...

Realize that Bose probably paid the company that employs you hundreds of thousands (if not millions) of dollars to make sure that display is where it is and behaves the way it does.

Somehow I doubt this is a Bose employee's favorite place to hang out, y'know, given all the love the general population sends to that name.

Ya think? Somehow I'm doubting you spend 8 to 10 hours a day nearby one of these displays having to listen to the same thing over and over again. I don't care. My employer is worldwide and I'm quite sure Bose is, too. When Bose decides to dish out some of that profit they make to make some better demo discs with well-known musicians, instead of cheap generic elevator music and not always having to use jazz or classical genres all the time, I'd leave this whole idea of disabling the demonstration mode alone. Until then they and their overrated products can burn in electronics Hell.

The better know the demo material, the greater the chance people have heard it on a better system!
