Bose Solo 5 Sound Bar

 Hi, I've recently purchased a BT You View box, with a Bose Solo 5 Sound bar connected to my TV via optical cable.

I can't seem to find a way to adjust the volume of the soundbar with the You View remote (but I can adjust the volume of my Toshiba TV).

Can anyone help?

Re: Bose Solo 5 Sound Bar

When you use the actual tv remote did that adjust the volume of the sound bar? I’m not 100% sure but I didn’t think an optical cable set up had the ability to respond with volume controls from a tv remote. 

‘Does your soundbar have an option for a hdmi cable? And does your tv have an hdmi port on it that says hdmi “arc”? If yes to both of them link a hdmi cable from the soundbar to the tv hdmi arc input then the remote should control the soundbar volume. You can then remove the optical cable as well.

Treat yourself to a universal remote such as the Harmony 650.
