Bose Solo Soundbar does not play audio from Blu-Ray discs.

post #1 of 5

Scratching my head on this one. The Bose Solo soundbar is connected to the blu-ray player via Toslink/optical connector and there is a nice bright red light coming from the connector that is the end plugged into the Bose Solo optical input jack.
The blu-ray player is also connected via HDMI cable to the input of the HDTV. (For the video mainly.)
Now, the Bose Solo works fine with regular DVD's, and will output audio from the blu-ray disc only during the main menu part of the disc. Once I select 'Play' and the movie begins there is no audio, no sound.
I've tried multiple blu-ray discs with the same problem occuring of no audio once the movie begins. And, again, let me say that this loss of audio problem does not occur with regular DVD discs.
Does anyone have any ideas why this is happening?

I'm pretty sure it has something to do with your audio settings in your BD player. I would just go back in the audio set up and toggle back n forth what you have enabled and what is not. That happens to me all the time and it drives me nuts when you realize it's just simple thing that was unchecked or checked.

Since the Bose Solo is designed for TV sound, I suspect it only supports Dolby Digital and the Blu-ray Discs main feature is DTS. That's why there is no sound. Unlike DVD's, Blu-ray Discs are not required to have a Dolby track for the main feature.
In your player you want to down mix your audio to stereo.

Check the settings on your BD player. There should be a setting just for Coax/Toslink, that you can change from PCM/Bitstream.

Thank You all for the replies! The fix was to change the Blu-Ray players' audio setting from Bitstream HD to PCM. That simple. No longer am I scratching my head, just shaking my head (at myself) at the simple fix due to a lack of understanding of the different audio types on the movie discs.

Thank you 'gregzoll' and 'moxie1617' and 'zoey67'. Your suggestions were on track. This thread can be considered solved. I love these forums!
