Hey there...i just bought the x-540 system...and its awesome...only problem i have is that my itunes, quicktime, windows media player and everything else wont use the rear and centre speaker...i have a 5.1 card because i have set it up and tested it using the wizard and it works fine...but it wont use them...any help is greatly appreciated :D
The system comes with l remote which provides controls
for "Power", "Master Volume", "Bass (Subwoofer) Volume" and "Matrix
Mode" . Matrix mode allows you to
spread stereo sound to all speakers where your sound card may not have
the ability to do so. I find that the "Stereo Surround" setting works best as opposed to the recommended "CMSS" setting

Could there be an electrical short in the speakers line?Could you return them for a refund? Also did the speakers come with the logitech computer system? Have the speaker system bench tested.Then go out and buy a new pair.
Hi bud , What your laptop has is a 2.1 Channel Sound card , and your speakers are a 5.1 Channel Surround Sound system ...So in order to get the Real pure surround sound , Sound out of the speakers you will need to buy a 5.1 Channel Sound card... Hope you come right bud happy new year :)
why dont you have them all hooked up? I have the same speakers but I the model that only has 2 speakers. Try pluging your audio cable in the front where you would plug head phones in. Assuming that this is a desktop.
buy a usb 2.0 type soundcard because your laptop does not support 5.1 surround speaker here is the link that will solve your problem http://www.amazon.com/Zalman-ZM-RSSC-External-Sound-Card/dp/B0001OZ2K8
Your problem is you have a 3 channel sound card on your dell and you bought 5 channel speaker system. You can plug the green to green and get 2.1 sound but you will have to by a 5.1 pci sound like in the link below to get the full use of your 5.1 system.
HERE is a link to the Z-540 manual. It should help. Connect the green plug from the audio input cable to the "line out" jack on your TV. Do NOT use the black or orange plugs. WIth a 2 channel card like your TV's you will not get sound from the rear speakers unless you enable matrix mode through the remote.
Hope that helps!
