Unhappy Harmony and Bose??

I have the panasonic plasma tv..sony bluray, and Bose Lifestyle v20.
I purchased the Harmony One Remote, because I was told EVERYTHING would work with it!! Well I had 2 guys here from firedog, and they worked on it for 2 hours. Needless to say cannot get the Bose to work with harmony.

Is there anyone out there that has the Bose V20 programmed to a harmony? If so, please share the code or whatever I need to do to program it.
Thanks in advance.
Marilyn

The best advice is to call Harmony (Logitec) and they will figure it out for you.

Try switching the remote to IR instead of RF and see if that makes a difference.

I have the Harmory 880 and in order to get my DTV HR20-100 to work I turned off RF and it works like a charm.

Bose is not compatable with universal programmable remotes because they use a unique RF system.

lmao, are you serious?! Could Bose get any more lame? Nope. Its the apple of sound, and can easily be out classed by a cheaper system from a number of companies [Definitive Technologies anyone?]. Stuff like this disgusts me.

Bose is compatible with IR systems, at least with Logitech. I have LifeStule 28 working nicely with a Logitech harmony One. On the Bose system, I had to turn on the IR in the System Setup for the Remote.

Once I did that, and used the codes that Logotech provided it worked NICELY.

I'm interested to know more about Definitive Technologies, could you point me to a complete theater system, from DT that has a receiver, wall mount speakers, wiring for less price than Bose? I'd especially be interested if it were super siple to hookup.

Thanks

Good to know that some Lifestyle systems will work with IR codes. Mine won't, so not all will.

here ya go - http://www.accessories4less.com/make...00-Watt/1.html

Double the quality - triple the sound - and about a 1/3 the price of Bose. Simply put - bose is high price, overly hyped crap in a box.
