Not getting full 5.1 sound from PC to surround sound system

I have an LX 2000 PC in my living room and am trying to connect the Philips SPA2600 Surround Sound system. I have connected the cables from the subwoofer to the Audio/Mic connectors on the back of the PC. The Mic socket is a "Mic In" so I am not surprised that nothing is coming out!! Am I suposed to have a connector plugged into the SPDF connector to alow digital sound? if so what connector would I need to connect the jack sockets from the Sound System into the SPDF Socket? Or am I totaly insane and have got ot completely wrong!!
I do have sound provided to the front speakers, again these are connected from the subwoofer to the PC via jack leads.

I am living in the UK if this makes a difference

Thanks for your help

    Is your pc surround sound capable? Spdf is digital and probably not where you want to start.. is your Phillips surround 5.1 or 7.1, and I rather doubt that your totally insane as you would probably destroyed your computer by now. I understand the temptation, but try to resist.

    Hi Ben,

    Are you connecting your surround sound to just a little green audio connecter (as in one for pc speakers).

    If so, then this is possibly a stereo output from your pc. (unless otherwise stated)

    Can you give me more info on the pc? Make and model number? lx 200 threw up a lot of results on google as you can imagine.

Well if your motherboard supports your speekers it shoud run corectlly, but if not, you shoud get a special sound card with cd, which will allow you to use your speakers. if you already have that sound card and installed drivers you should go to your sound card control pannel and make changes there to use all your sound system speakers.

I'd like to add two speakers to my older 4 pin Bose 321 system. Can I buy adaptors to split off the two small front speakers to run two additional speakers to the rear of the room?


is there any connection for 2 more speakers?
if not there is no real way to make it surround sound . however you can double up the speakers with the front ones.
but you loose sound quality and it wont be true surround sound. but you can give it a try

My mom just bought this philips sound system and the subwoofer is not producing any sound. The other speakers work just fine but the sub woofer does not work. I was wondering if their was any call backs or...


Press the surround button on the Philips remote to see if the subwoofer will begin producing noise - the surround button switches the mode from simple stereo to full surround. I would test the surround button while watching a DVD, because not every tv channel is going to even produce surround effects. Good luck!

Only 2 of my 5 speakers are working


Press the SURR button until you get sound on all five speakers. If you don't get sound on all 5, there are a few possibilities:
1) the program you are watching only gets stereo sound or lower (only two or one speaker will play in this case)
2) you need to get a digital audio cable instead of using the red/white AV cable
3) a setting on the TV, cable, or satellite box needs to be changed to allow surround sound in full
