I've read the manual many times, and the only thing I can find is that the videostage (music center) can send anything to the 5 speakers. Perhaps that is the faux surround you refer to. However, it aint working anymore.
Not sure I agree that Bose is crap, but it certainly is overpriced.
When I get a chance, I'm going to wheel that old JVC (yes it still works) into the living room and run the cable to it (with and without the Cisco), run the audio out the back of the JVC to the Bose, and see what happens. If all speakers work when direct connected to the cable, then the Cisco is the culprit. If not, then the signal coming down the cable is something the Bose just cant handle like it use to.
I appreciate your insights - thanks.
