I have a Nikkai S-VIDEO & STEREO PHONO to SCART connecting my tv to BOSE 321, yet the picture is coming through in monochrome. Should i have bought a different connector?

I had the same problem.


I could not get HDMI to HDMI to work.



i fixed it (work around), by connecting ATV HDMI to DVD HDMI port on V30, i then connect L&R to AUX.  I set the Bose remote for controlling ATV to AUX. 


so to use ATV with Bose remote i know press DVD, this gives me the correct display but not audio, i then press AUX and this gives me ATV control and audio.






interesting, when i first set this up (trial and error), it didn't work.  I was doing some cable management clean up, when i got a fright and the thing started working...but i have a ghost in my house so that is probably a more plausible reason why its working now.


it feels like this product is only 90% finished

I am about to go through the same process. I have a Bose 321, and am on the verge of getting a HDTV. From what I can figure, the Bose can play a dvd and input it to the HDTV via video and audio output plugs off the back of the Bose to the audio/video input jacks on the back of the new HDTV. I think individual cables will have to be run for each. They usually are red or white, sometimes green or blue. I am sure everyone has seen these in their life. The Bose 321 technology only had what was called an S-Video cable output for the best picture, which is how my current tv gets it's Bose signal, but now HDMI seems to have superceded S-Video. Therein lies an obstacle to be overcome.

Monochrome means that the TV's input is set to composite and not S-video. This is common with Panasonic TVs. Have a look to see if there's an option to change the preference from composite to S-Video. That will sort the problem.

Have u tryed other disc ? if so your Bose system my have read a corrupted disc u may want to change out your IDE cable and if that doesn't work then corrupted files has made its way to one of your main broads.

I'm amazed at the range of comments regarding this system; they range from unbridled enthusiasm to some **** words.


Before I try to help, if I am not familiar with a specific model but have a clue to what the nature of the problem might be, I research the item to see if I find some support for my suspicion.


You might keep tabs on some comments I found relating to a possible class-action lawsuit due to the array of problems that have appeared with this system.


This link will give you a sample of them:

Replace the batteries from the remote control. Press and hold the TV button on remote for 5 seconds. If the red light shines bright, your remote is OK since it is showing it's programmable side. If unit still won't go on using the remote, reboot the whole system by unplugging the power cord and other wire from the Subwoofer. Wait one minute, then replug all and see if the system displays BOSE 321 in front when re-connected. If so, try the remote and if that doesn't work, your dead, the Infra red communication device from the unit to the remote is busted inside the unit and needs to be returned to the company like mine!!!!!
