Cinemate Connection

Hi,

I own a Cinemate system now for a few years and love it. I've recently bought a new smart tv and it doesn't have rca type Jacks to plug in the remote module.  Does anyone have a solution that works? I've tried the little rca to hdmi modules on Amazon and have had no luck.

Thanks in advance!

 

Bose product name

Cinemate 

Country

Canada

Firmware Version

(1.0.7, 4.8.1, 1.7.0, etc.)

App Version

(4.1.1, 13.0.2, etc.)

What devices were you using that were affected and what version are they on

(Samsung Galaxy S9 on Android 11, iPhone X on iOS14, etc.)

Detailed description of the issue and steps to reproduce

 

What environment do you experience the issue in?

(noisy office, quiet kitchen, etc.)

 

When did you start to experience the issue? Did it work correctly previously?

 

Any troubleshooting steps you took

Oddly enough the same solutions I wrote about in this guide about how to use for RCA based Lifestyle CD systems with modern HDTV's would work well for you. Though I have not looked into what audio formats your system supports.

 

I hope this helps solves your issue. Let us know what you end up doing 🙂

Re: Cinemate Connection

@Chris S. Does your Cinemate support optical?

Re: Cinemate Connection

OMG!  Don’t use a power surge protector.  Reading again how everyone was using this conversion pushed me once again to keep trying and my apologies in advance, it was my fault.  The power to the converter was not fully getting through and now it works!  YAY! YAY! YAY!  I’ve had multiple receivers for my entire childhood, let alone adult life but alas, somehow I have none right this moment and had to succumb to this stupid Bose Red White cable jonx.  Anyway, if anyone has an issue, make sure you are getting enough power or it will never work.
