The remote control for the Bose 3 2 1 Home Theater System will automatically control your Bose 3 2 1 media centre. Setting the Bose 3 2 1 remote for use with other components will allow you to eliminate additional remotes. It isn't difficult, but it will require some codes. Here's a look.

Skill level:
Moderately Easy

Things you need

  • 2 AA batteries
  • Code for your Make/model

    Set up with Predefined Codes

  1. 1

    Install the batteries into the Bose remote. Slide off the cover on the lower back and insert batteries as shown by the terminal markings.

  2. 2

    Turn on your component and 3 2 1 system.

  3. 3

    Hold down the button for the component you're synchronising with on the remote (TV, CD-DVD, CBL-Sat, FM/AM, Aux) until the LED light on the top of the remote turns on.

  4. 4

    Enter the code for your component. See in the link in Resources for the 3 2 1 manual from Bose. Codes are listed at the end of the manual, beginning on page A-1. When the correct code is entered, the LED light will turn off. Otherwise, the LED light will continue to blink. Try a different manufacturer's code.

  5. 5

    Turn the component off with the Bose remote, then back on. Use the channel up/down button to switch channels or skip through options. If both functions work, the remote is ready for the component. If not, try additional codes.

Tips and warnings

  • Refer to your specific manual for possible instructions on searching for codes, if listed codes don't work (see link in Resources).
