connect Creative 5.1 A500 speaker system to Philli - moz-screenshot.jpg 2d65f17.jpg
Just buy two connectors(shown above). Its having two holes upside.
1. Connect the connector to one hole of the other.
2. Connect the audio cable to the dvd.
3. Then connect the connectors to the other side of the audio cable.
4. Lastly, connect the three stereo output cables of the Creative speakers to the three holes of the connector simultaneously.
I have tried this at home with my Creative Inspire M5300 speakers and philips dvd. All the five speakers are working.

When playing dolby digital 5.1 surround dvds it.is not getting decoded.i get the sound in all the speakers.


go to your control panel
click the sound icon
under the playback tab select the audio device you want to configure
right click properties
check each tab make sure you have dts / dd ticked

you may have software from creative installed check this to make sure you have the soundcard setup to output 5.1 when available

make sure the sound is configured on power dvd

if you cant get it working that way i suggest trying windows media player 11

also remember the soundcard will only output 5.1 if the source is 5.1 a copied dvd for example could be 2 channel stereo

i hope this helps you out !

I have F&D home theatre i want to connect it to laptop


go to radio shack or walmart . get a cable that has an 1/8th inch stereo plug on one end and two (male) rca plugs on the other end.
make sure your volume is not all the way up on either the computer or the stereo.
plug the 1/8 inch plug into your "speaker or headphone" jack on the laptop.
plug the red and white (male) rca plugs into the auxilary or cd "IN" on the home theatre.
Power up the stereo, make your source on the home theatre the Auxilary or CD, whichever you used to plug the RCA's into.
now you should hear anything from the laptop through the home theatre.
Regards..

How i can connect creative 5.1 speakers to my hp dv4-1135 laptop,


you are going to need a external sound card.

Surround center speaker does not work


This is a 5.1 (6 Channel Technology) You should hear only the voice thro the center speaker. If the source you are playing is stereo, however the software splits the source its difficult to seprate the voice track, if the source is a DTS 5.1, then you should hear the voice only thro the center speaker. eg: when you play a DVD movie which is DTS 5.1 then you should hear only the voice track in the center speaker, if the dvd movie is just stereo then you will not hear any audio in the center speaker, while the other four speakers get output, this is the special effect in 5.1 ( 6 channel Output).
