Re: x-530 rear and mid speakers not working

Hi guys.
Right, I am not technically minded at all, and all this talk about updating software and plug-ins baffled me. I bought my Logitech speakers 3 days ago, and happily plugged them into the soundcard, only to be puzzled that only my front speakers and subwoofer worked when I played music or video. I then had a brainwave. Using the 3 in 1 port that logitech provided me with, I got myself a phono to mono lead, which you can get at all good electrical stores, (take the three way box with you if you are stuck) Then proceed to plug the three speaker outputs into the box, colour co ordinated, then the phono end of the phono to mono lead in the box at the other side. Then using the single input, plug it into the input of your Soundcard. My soundcard has 8 inputs, so I just kept trying them all until sound came out through my speakers. A much less technical answer than changing all your drivers, creating profiles, fiddling with the deep insides of your PC. Hope this is of some use to you guys!

Re: x-530 rear and mid speakers not working

I am using XP (and in a different language), but I will try to describe what I've done to my best.
Supposing you've installed all drivers and control consoles correctly, go to Volume Control of Windows (the little speaker icon in the lower right hand corner). On the top, move to Options, and select Advanced Options. Now there should be something similar to "Playback Controls" on the left side of the dialog box. Click on the "Speaker Volume" button Click "Restore Defaults" (this should set all slide bars to the middle) Click OK Now test!

Re: x-530 rear and mid speakers not working

Sounds like a software mapping problem. If your sound card has its input and output jacks configured in software, you may need to create a profile (depending upon the software and drivers your sound card came with) for how different applications configure the output ports on the card. I had this same problem playing DVDs; PowerDVD ran everything fine on all channels, while Media Player and DivX ran only two channels. Start by checking the sound card's web site for configuration utilities and installing the latest drivers. Then, launch a program that does it *wrong*, and try to tweak the sound card's properties through control panel/device manager or through the card's TSR/system tray program.

Ideas anyway. :>)

There are leads that need to be connected to your computer for the Front, Rear, and Subwoofer speakers Not all motherboards have all of these connections Your Logitech manual shows how to connect the speakers correctly if you do not have all of the connections on your motherboard

Sorry just doublechecked your board specs. Go to the sound properties in control panel. Click on the configure speakers option. If everything is plugged in right then windows should configure it for you to a 5.1 config. Hope this helps.

Trouble with Speaker 5.1 +Vista + Asus P5k Motherboard. No Rear Speaker sound

Hi Perseo,

If you run through a speaker test in windows, and hear playback from all 5 speakers and the subwoofer, then your system is correctly connected, and working properly.

Vista uses a layered sound system that renders sound a bit differently than what you're used to on your previous system. As a result, it will most often refuse to project stereo sources in 5-channel surround, on it's own. it will just play them as stereo, and the bass will fill in whenever it can.

One possible way you could use to get around this, is to force the system to use all 5 speakers, through the driver. If you're using a realtek onboard card anything like mine (I have a p5k-VM board myself), this can be done by opening up the HD Audio Manager, and selecting the "Speaker Fill" option, under the Speaker Configuration" tab.

another option would be to load your media player you use to play music or movies, and see if there's an option to change speaker settings within the programs.

hope this helps!

Subwoofer and center box problems with Logitech X530

Hi Sainty,

this is just a shot in the dark, but have you attempted to play around with your sound driver's configuration? I'm unfamiliar with the newer Nforce stuff, but try looking around in the sound manager Nvidia uses. It sounds like it's been configured to swap speakers. (As an example, I'm using the realtek audio manager on an asus p5k-vm board myself, and the option shows up as "Swap Center/ Subwoofer Output" in my configuration.)
