Anyone has the info for a lifestyle 48 installation?

I don't know why, but we switched to using IR for the 48 some time ago and I have not inquired as to the reasoning yet, but would imagine it's because BOSE may have dropped support for the serial data port. I don't know.

I will have to switch over to Windows (from Linux) to see what I have in my DB (that only runs in Winblows).

I may post what I have later but it probably won't be of any use to most people here.

Do you need to change something on the bose system?

Yes > For IR: Page 60 of the Owners Guide...
In the System Menu; select Remote Control and turn ON IR Commands.
"IR Control: Can change to allow (Teach) another remote to control the system using IR commands (On)."

You could teach a Pronto I suppose; I've never tried it from the Bose since I already have what I need for use with Crestron systems.

What type of cable do I need to use?

Use an IR emitter* - otherwise use the same cable described below which should apply to all BOSE models Serial Data ports [AFAIK].
