I have a Bose sound bar attached to my TV with an optical cable. I just switched to FiOS TV One with the voice remote. At first I could not get my voice remote paired with the Bose sound bar, but I think it was because I didn't try long enough to find the remote code. Using the voice remote, press the play/pause button and the 0 button simultaneously. When the blue light on the remote begins flashing, let go of the buttons. Follow the instructions on the screen to, "Select a new Audio Device Brand". "Bose" was already an option on the next screen. It took me through a few screens, testing if the TV muted and if the volume changed. At first, the the tv muted, but the volume didn't change. I had to select the option, "No, the volume didn't change", several times until the correct remote code was found. Then, finally, the voice remote controlled everything. Good luck!

Thanks for a very detailed reply
I got sound bar working, but now want the stupid screen saver deleted before I turn off TV, a Samsung smart 50" one.
The screensaver never goes away,. Not a feature you can change. Just have to turn off the tv.

According to the AV guy I brought in specifically to do a Bose system pairing, Bose has proprietary software that doesn’t allow such pairing
Seems like others got their Bose soundbar to work with the fios remote. Try the procedure posted above. It is just simple IR codes that need to be sent.
