Your Blu-Ray player should at least have an optical output besides HDMI. Connect the optical output to Bose optical input. Set up your blu-ray player that the sound goes to optical output according to the blu-ray player manual.

Looking at Page 16 of the Installation Guide for this unit, I noticed that you have an optical input. You should connect the optical output of your blu-ray player to this input via toslink optical cable. Hope this helps; if not, send me a PM and I'll try to explain better.

The BOSE sound system would be an upgrade if he was using the speakers in a 19" flat panel computer monitor.

Does this system support HDMI?
Quote:
Yes. The VS2 video enhancer integrates other video sources—including HDMI—with your system and enables the synchronization of audio and video at the push of a button. The VS-2 video enhancer is included with the Lifestyle® 48, 38 and 35 systems, but is compatible with all Lifestyle systems
Quote:
Simplay HD™ testing assures HDMI compatibility. Some devices featuring HDMI may not
work well with others. Many manufacturers submit HDMI devices to Simplay, an independent
certifying organization, which conducts tests to assure the compatibility of the electronics
products with HDMI. All certified devices carry the Simplay HD label. Bose has submitted this
Lifestyle® product to Simplay, which has verified consistent performance between this and all
HDMI-enabled devices. This Lifestyle® product has met the standards necessary to bear the
Simplay HD label.

Please let us know if Cooley's solution did the trick. If not, could you tell us what Blu-ray player you're using?

I am . i am but the OP should re-frase that part ppl will have a chuckle by reading that .

But answering your question yes you can do that since in the back of the speaker it's like a clip connector like a lot of the cheaper speakers that we know today and it uses a 20AWG wire with a RCA connector that plugs on the sub , basically it looks like a connection on a 100$ Logitech 5.1 system , so yes they can be plugged on a normal receiver minus the sub , but don't plug it on yours ... you might blow the drivers on the speakers .

Now we have a Bose store here in Montreal and i went to check it out and have some fun with the sales guy's . They were selling the Lifstyle V-35 for $3000 . I asked one guy how many Ohms the speakers were rated and the guy diden't knew what the hell i was talking about but he showed me how cool the remote was since it glows in the dark
