Hi...I just swapped out to the new Contour 2 with Voice Remote (previously had the basic Contour box). Unable to connect the new Contour 2 box with my Bose Solo 5 Sound Bar. For reference, I have the following devices that I want to use together:
Samsung TV (2013)
Bose Solo 5 Sound Bar
Cox Contour 2 box with Voice Remote
Fire TV Lite Stick
The old Contour basic box allowed me to connect my Solo 5 to the tv and the box using optical cable. There isn't a place on the new Contour 2 to do that. Can't figure out how to connect the Bose soundbar to the new Contour 2.
In the end, I want to be able to watch TV via Contour 2 and use my Bose Solo 5 sound bar. I've recently added Fire TV Lite to HDMI2 on the TV but can't figure how to add that to the sound bar as well.
Can anyone please help me?!! I've spent so many hours trying to figure this out, and a cousin that has been trying to help me (remotely) has even ordered several different cables trying to help, but none of them work (optical & otherwise). I HATE the tinny sound from the TV (and also the Fire TV stick). Loved listening to programs, movies, concerts with the Bose Solo 5 sound bar...I really want it back! HELP?? HELP??
I looked at some images of the Bose and didn't see an HDMI port.
What type of connectors are on your Samsung and Bose?
What is the complete model number of your 2013 Samsung?
What year is your Bose sound bar?
