Introduction
Welcome
English
Thank you for purchasing a LIFESTYLE® DVD-based home entertainment system. Through
proprietary Bose technologies and innovative LIFESTYLE® systems design, it delivers superior performance for both music and video programming from an elegant and easy-to-use
system.
Note: Because DVD is a relatively new technology, please take the time to read through this
manual and familiarize yourself with the features of your new system.
Types of discs you can play
The DVD player in your system can play the following types of discs having the
corresponding logos:
• Video DVDs
• Video CDs (VCDs)
• Audio CDs
• CD-Rs or CD-R/Ws
• MP3 CDs
Check for region number compatibility
For any DVD player and DVD disc to be compatible, their region numbers must match. These
numbers are allocated according to where the player and disc are sold.
Check the region number on the bottom of the media center included with your system. Then
be sure to choose only DVD discs that show the same region number on the disc label or
packaging.
For example, a Region 1 DVD player should display the following mark:
Glossary
Aspect ratio – The shape of the rectangular picture in a TV set expressed as the width of the
picture relative to the height. For example, if a TV picture has an aspect ratio of 4:3 (read as 4
by 3), the shape of that picture is 4 units wide by 3 units high. The two standard TV aspect
ratios are 4:3 and 16:9.
Chapter – In DVD-Video, a division of a title. Technically called a part of title (PTT).
Component video – A video system containing three separate color component signals,
either red/green/blue (RGB) or chroma/color difference (YPbPr), in analog or digital form. The
MPEG-2 encoding system used by DVD is based on color-difference component digital
video.

Introduction
English
Composite video – A single video signal that contains luminance, color, and synchronization
information. NTSC and PAL are examples of composite video systems.
1 – The logo representing Dolby Digital.
Dolby Digital – A perceptual coding system for audio, developed by Dolby Laboratories and
accepted as an international standard. Dolby Digital is the most common means of encoding
multi-channel audio.
– The logo representing DTS.
DTS – A type of multi-channel surround sound format used on discs.
DVD – An acronym that is most commonly known to mean Digital Video Disc or Digital Versatile Disc. The audio/video/data storage system is based on 12-cm optical discs.
DVD video – A standard for storing and reproducing audio and video on DVD-ROM discs,
based on MPEG video, Dolby Digital and MPEG audio, and other proprietary data formats.
IR – An acronym for infrared. Pertains to the type of remote that sends/receives commands
on an infrared light beam.
Letterbox – A video format which has black borders at the top and bottom of the picture.
MP3 – MPEG-1 Layer III audio. This is a compressed audio format that allows you to record
many hours of music on a single CD.
NTSC – An acronym for National Television System Committee. The U.S. organization that
developed both the American Black & White and Color television system.
PAL – An acronym for Phase Alternate Line. This is one of several composite video systems.
The PAL format is used extensively in Western Europe.
Pan & Scan – The technique of reframing a picture to conform to a different aspect ratio by
cropping parts of the picture. DVD-Video players can automatically create a 4:3 pan & scan
version from widescreen video by using a horizontal offset encoded with the video.
PCM – The form of the digital audio signal used for both CD and laserdisc. It is a serial data
stream that is coded for transmission or recording.
S-video – A video interface standard that carries separate luminance and chrominance signals, usually on a four-pin mini-DIN connector. Also called Y/C. The quality of S-video is significantly better than composite video since it does not require a comb filter to separate the
signals. Most high-end televisions have S-video inputs.
Videostage® 5 – Our proprietary Videostage 5 decoding circuitry gives you a five-channel
surround sound experience from everything you listen to – VHS tapes, stereo CDs, even
mono TV programs.
YPbPr – A component analog video signal containing one luminance and two chrominance
components. Often referred to loosely as YUV or Y, B-Y, R-Y.

General System Operation
English
Turning your system on and off
You can turn your system on and off using the On/Off button on the remote control or the
media center button panel. When you turn it on with either On/Off button, the source that
was played last is automatically selected. You can also press any source button on the
remote to turn the system on and select the source at the same time.
Making sound adjustments
Volume
System volume can be raised or lowered using the Volume ▲ ▼ buttons on the remote or the
media center button panel.
Changing the number of speakers playing
When you turn on a source, the number of speakers used for that source is automatically
determined. For example, when you select FM, the front right and left speakers are used.
When you play a DVD video, all five speakers are turned on. You can change the number of
speakers used for any source by pressing the Speakers 2-3-5 button on the remote control.
Adjusting surround sound
The sound level of the surround (rear) speakers in your system can be adjusted in small steps
using the Surround + / – buttons on your remote. In surround (5-speaker) mode, Surround+
raises the volume; Surround– lowers it.
Using the headphones jack
For private listening, you can connect a headset to the headset jack located on the right side
of the media center. When a headset is connected, all ZONE 1 speakers are muted.
System settings
When necessary, the system settings can be changed using the system settings menus. See
“Changing System Settings” on page 22.
Using the sleep timer
Your system includes a sleep timer, which can be set to turn your system off automatically
after 10 to 90 minutes of listening to any source. This timer can be accessed through the settings menu. See “Using the settings menus” on page 22.
Changing the video output for component video connections
If your TV or video monitor is capable of component video input signals, and you have connected your TV to your system using the component video adapter (included), you must
change the video output setting in the settings menu to “YPbPr”. This will enable the media
center to send the correct video signals to your TV.
To change the video output setting, see “Using the settings menus” on page 22, and
“Changing the system setup” on page 34.

Playing a Video DVD
English
Before you play your first DVD
This section tells you how to use the DVD player in your system to play video DVDs. Before
you play your first DVD, make note of the following:
• Make sure that you are familiar with the functions of the remote control buttons (see “The
remote control” on page 7). Although some remote control buttons look the same as those
found on a VCR or CD player remote, their functions are different.
• In order for some system features to work, the DVDs that you play must be encoded with
the information for that feature. For example, in order to display subtitles while watching a
movie, the disc must contain subtitle information.
• Both the DVD player in your system and the discs you play are coded by region. In order for
a disc to play, these region codes must match. Check the label on the media center or on
the shipping carton for your player’s region code.

Using parental controls
Playback restrictions can be placed on your DVD player by choosing a level of parental control and setting up a system password using the settings menu. See “Parental control setup
submenu” on page 36. For information on using the system settings menu, see “Changing
System Settings” on page 22.
The Motion Picture Association of America (MPAA) standard movie ratings are mapped to
specific parental levels of control in the following table. There are eight levels, each less
restrictive of content than the level below. The DVD player in your new LIFESTYLE® home
entertainment system can be set to any of these eight levels.

Changing the house code settings
Each LIFESTYLE® remote control uses a system of matching house codes to communicate
with its corresponding media center. If commands given from your remote ever conflict with
those of another nearby LIFESTYLE® system, you can easily set a new house code for your
system and its remote control(s) by doing the following:
1.
Open the remote control battery cover and locate the miniature switches (Figure 15).
2.
Move one or more of switches 1, 2, 3, or 4 in the opposite direction from its current
setting. Use a paper clip, ball point pen, or similar object.
Note: DO NOT change any other switch settings. Moving other switches may cause your
remote to not control your system.
3.
Replace the battery cover.
4.
Lift the media center door and press the All Off button.
5.
Press and hold the Store key. Your current house code will appear in the media center
display window in the form of four rectangles which represent the positions of switches 1
through 4:
HOUSE CODE:
Current house code = 0 0 0 0 (Switches 1 - 4 down.)
6.
While holding the Store key, press any key on the remote control.
The display will change to show the new house code to confirm recognition of the
new code:
NEW HOUSE CODE:
New house code = 1 0 1 0
(Switch 1 up, 2 down, 3 up, and 4 down.)
7.
Release the Store key. The system remains off.
8.
If you have additional remote controls, change the switches to match those of the first
remote control. It is not necessary to repeat steps 4-8.
Note: To verify your system’s house code, press Store while the system is off. The display
confirms the settings of switches 1-4.

Setting up a second listening zone
English
Your LIFESTYLE® home entertainment system can direct sound from one or two sound
sources (such as CD, AM/FM tuner, TAPE, or AUX) to two different listening zones at the
same time.
What is a zone?
Each listening area, whether a room or a group of rooms (including outdoor areas), is called a
zone. Your primary listening area is set up as zone 1.
What do I need for setting up a second zone?
• A Bose® powered speaker system that is compatible with your home entertainment system.
An existing stereo system can also be connected (special adapter required).
• The appropriate LIFESTYLE® system cable to connect the zone 2 speaker system to the
SPEAKER ZONES 2 connector on the rear panel of the media center.
• A second LIFESTYLE® system remote control to operate the zone 2 sound.
See your dealer or contact Bose for information on obtaining additional powered speakers,
remote controls, cables, and adapters for connecting additional equipment.
How do I set up a second remote to control zone 2?
