    Yes you can. I just hooked mine up this evening and it worked. I have a Samsung LED tv, and I'm sure it will work with most modern flat screens. I first tried hooking up to the back of the TV using a two-pronged red/white RCA cable with a 3.5mm mini-headphone jack at the other end. This didn't work. I then realized that the Audio Out jack right next to it was the one to use. So you need this:

    A 3.5mm (mini-headphone sized) cable with male connectors at both ends. One end goes into the Audio Out on the back of your TV, and the other goes into the AV slot on the back of your Bose sounddock. You'll be able to hear both the sounddock and your tv's audio at the same time if you want to. I do that, and the two of them together make a nice full sound.
