Ok, first off, turn off the caps lock. It is considered yelling, so only use it when you would be yelling.

Now, your Bose unit only has component video out, none in, so you would have to hook up all your devices directly to the tv. You are going to need 4 sets of component cables. Hook the bose unit from the componnent out on the bose to the component in on the TV. That takes care of your DVD. Unfortunately, you only have 1 other set of component ins on your TV and HD requires at least a component connection (you can also hook up HD by HDMI or DVI, but you don't have those on the TV). So you have to get a component switcher with three inputs to run the X-Box, PS3 and HD-Cable box. This will require 1 more set of component cables + the switcher (like this at radio shack:RS Component switchbox).Hook up the PS3, the X-box and the HD-TV box using the switcher and component cables. That takes care of the video.

Hook the third gaming system to the composite (yellow video input 1,2, or 3) and hook it's audio up to the R/W left and right RCA plugs. That one is easy.

Now, the audio has to get hooked up to the Bose. You need to match up your digital audio outs on your games and HD-TV box to the digital audio ins on the bose. It looks like you have 2 coax (orange RCA plugs above the S-videos) and 1 optical (the little plug on the left next to the boselink). Hopefully, you have 2 coax and 1 optical outs on the stuff you are hooking up. If you do, you need 2 cheap video cables and 1 optical cable. Hook up the digital outs to the digital in and then see what you've got and get back to us here.

Hope this is enough to get you started and keep the family at bay for a while.


Good luck!
