Instruction on how to control Bose Cinemate speakers with AT&T remote
Sorry for the duplicate post, I just wanted to give info on how to control your BOSE Cinemate speakers with the provided AT&T remote. Here are the details. Now if I can just figure out how to control the Pinnacle Show Center.
I was able to get my U-Verse DVR remote to control my Boze Cinemate Speakers. Here are the steps:
1. Send me $50 as a thank you - ok, just kidding
1. Release the volume controls and assign them to the AUX:
A. Press and hold AT&T Button and OK Button at the same time, release both buttons. All the mode keys will flash twice indicating you're in programming mode. B. Enter 955 on the remote keypad, the AT&T key will flash twice indicating a correct entry C. Press the mode key you want to alway receive the volume commands - I assigned mine to the AUX mode button. The mode key chosen will flash three times indicating success. Volume commands will now be delivered to the AUX button regardless of the mode you are in.
2. Assign the AUX to the BOSE system:
A. Make sure the Boze remote receiver is powered on (green light is on).
B. Press and hold the AUX Button and OK Button at the same time, release both Buttons. All the mode keys will flash twice indicating you're in programming mode.
C. Enter the 4 digit BOSE code on the keypad, I used BOSE Remote Code 4000. D. The AUX Button will flash three times indicating correct entry.
You can test by hitting the power button while AUX is selected and the BOSE should turn off and should also be turned back on when hitting power once more. Volume control should also now control the BOSE regardless of what you are watching. Basically the Volume up and Volume down buttons are now set to send signals to the AUX mode regardless of the situation. Thus, you odo not need to select AUX when you want to control volume. You only need to hit the AUX button when you want to turn the BOSE system off or on.
Hope that helps, I'm new to U-Verse and so far rather pleased. I'm stubborn techie that doesn't like the machines winning so my next goal is to figure out what can and can't be done with the USB and network ports on these boxes without violating any terms of service, warranty, etc. I figure if that USB port wasn't meant to be used, it shouldn't have been put on the front of the box staring at me... taunting me. In fact he's looking at me right now.
