Hi all,

Does Serial Data, RS422 mean anything to you guys ?

I know that the model 50 & 20 can be controlled via the Serial Data 3.5mm stereo jack input on the rear of the unit. (Baud 1200,8,n,1).

This is NOT an RS232 input and connecting a PC serial port to it will probably pop the receiving chip. (232 = +/-12v), This port expects TTL level data (+/-5v) so either a MAX232 type chip to act as a gateway between 232-TTL or RS422 (available on AMX & Crestron) uses acceptable voltage.

My dilemma is that I'm face with an Old Lifestyle Model 5, which DOES have the 3.5mm input but it's labeled "System Control" rather than "Serial Data". Does anyone have any experience with this blighter ?

Yes you can control a Bose with a T2. You need to change the system to be IR instead of RF. There are many post already about this. You should try a search.

But it can be done

Call Bose Tech. They're actually very helpful with this sort of thing. The codes themselves are in the Mega Code List.

Hi, is there someone can tell me if it's possible to control LIFESTYLE 48 via "Serial Data" connector?
I have documentation about commands but that port seems not operating.
Maybe there is some action to enable it??

Thanks in advance.

The Lifestyle 20 and 50 require an IR converter box. It was an Audio Authority C-1024 sold as a Bose C-1024 IR converter. They used to be available on www.BluDo.com but I no longer see them on their site. There are discrete IR codes for most everything. This was back in the bad old days of their marriage with Philips so there are bose published CCF files out there with all of the commands. I can send them to you if you need them.

The newer Lifestyle systems have an IR receiver built in and there are well documented codes for the 18, 28, 35, 38 and 48. You can find them in the RTI library. I also possess an excel generator file that will create codes for all Boselink rooms A-O.

As far as I know, the serial data port on the newer models are used to communicate with their add on video switcher. I could be wrong but I have been working with Bose product integration for quite some time and I have never run accross any published 232 protocol

It is definitely possible to integrate the newer range of systems (18/28/38/48) with rs232 and integrate with amx/lutron etc as I have seen this done. From memory Bose were not keen on giving out the necessary code to enable this integration so alot of programming was needed to make it happen. If anybody is realy interested in this I can contact the programmer and see if he will share the code that he used and the methodolagy?!
