This is a direct connect meaning you have to have a connection for every channel. So if your tv has outputs for 5.1 channels then yes you can but most tv's dont output this just stereo, meaning you will only get sound out of your left and right channel because most likely your tv might have the red and white outputs for right and left.
There is no dolby processor in the speaker system to take a 2 channel input and make it into 5.1. This is usually done through your sound card or your receiver. Some receivers will have preouts for this. i dont know if you have an amplifier hooked up to the tv if so you can see if your receiver has those pre-out connections.
i hope this helps clarify the situation.

Hook mz506 surround sound to my Samsung tv


Typically surround sound is run through a receiver or stereo. The sound from the tv is carried to the receiver by cables (hdmi or Audio-Video connected to input area of receiver). Then the speakers are connected to the output area of the receiver.
If you are not using a receiver, then the speakers must be able to connect directly to the tv and you have to see what kind of cabling your tv supports.

Yes there has to be a configuration for the 5.4 surround sound... look if the hardware came with a CD to update the sound driver. or Check if the its correctly configured. on the control panel then click Sound, then depending what windows you have have to lookk for the configuration or properties area and configure as 5.0 or sorround etc.

Part of my speakers are just not working. Hooked up, and unhooked and re hooked, but not all speakers working. Right now just 2 of seven are working.


If u have a surround sound card that supports up to the amount of speakers u have (5.1 or 7.1) try change the speaker settings in control pannel as follows.

Start>control pannel>sound>
and see if u have the setting on stereo, if so change it to the 5.1 or 7.1 setting.

If u have software on the otherhand for your sound card you can configure the settings there to change from stereo to surround sound.

Hope this helped :)

Logitech X-540 limited sound


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.

I have a x-540 speaker system I brought today. Do I need a sound card to make it work with my pc. I hook it up/no sound.


A stereo computer system with resources to produce and record surround sound channels. Such surround sound channels are played or recorded using an audio card added to the computer system, which audio card controls additional speakers and/or microphones. Software for redirecting instructions from existing stereo application programs and sending these instructions to the existing audio device driver and the additional audio device driver is needed. Resources for processing the digital audio data for either extracting surround sound channels from two channel data provided by the application, or for encoding two sets of two channel audio data recorded by the two audio cards is also needed

Hi,

Based on your query "...which jack...put the green cable ...", I would suggest that you replace that green cable with a 3.5mm Stereo Phone Male to Twin RCA Male as shown below.
19ba6b8.jpg. The stereo phone would match the green INput ((Front) of the Logitech X-540 while the twin RCA (white & red) would match the RCA AUDIO OUTput of the LG 37LC2D.

Of course hooking it up this way would not fully utilize the 5.1 features of the X-540 (Rear and Sub/Center) but the TV sound will come out of the front speakers.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
