Sometimes voices are low on playing of music/films
I have the X-540 5.1 speakers and on certain songs, they play fine through all speakers with the 'matrix' setting turned on. However, on certain songs and particularly with films with music in the backround, the voice on the audio is at a very low volume, and is sometimes barely audible over the rest of the music. I've installed the logitech software, but this has not helped. Please someone help, i'm beginning to lose patience! :)

Re: Sometimes voices are low on playing of music/films
Well, it sound to (recording ) on each songs, depending on how it record, if happen only with some , it is no problem but if all songs you play happend then its a problem with the drivers, or program to control your music, try to down a notch on control panel the hardware acceleration. it solve a lot problems of this kind, or reinstall the drivers for the sound card.

It sounds like a problem with your centre channel or speaker. The sound of Voices and on-screen, actions in the middle of the screen are played through the centre speaker. General sounds such as music in the background, off-screen events, etc. will be played through other speakers on a home theatre system. Check your connectors coming from your DVD player to your sound system. Are you using a single-cabled digital connector or one for every channel? Check your sound settings as well, i.e., Surround, AC3, Music, etc.
Magic Jack stores your messages as an AUDIO FIle. You play them back via Microsoft's player program. If your audio program is not working, then you can not play them back. Check and see if you can play a music file from the sample music folder. It works OK, then Windows Audio is fine. If not you may have turned off the Audio. Look to the lower right side of the computer screen and you will see a small speaker. Left click and see if the VOLUME is set to an audible pitch suitable to you. Check the master control and make certain it is on, set to the type of speakers you use. If all the settings are correct and the sound level is OK, then you should be able to play back your messages. Write back if you still have the same problem.
do you have the sound set to surrond sound? What it sounds like is that it is trying to play through surrond speakers but you dont have them, which is why you can hear the music and not the actors voices. click with the right mouse button on the speaker in the bottom right of your screen, then click on sounds , now click on the playback tab in the sound window, click on the sound device shown and then click configure, choose stereo and choose two speakers. Continue to the end then try to play the video and see if you can now hear the voices. If you cant then you maybe missing codecs needed to play the audio correctly. Please state if this is a movie you have downloaded or a dvd film on disc etc
An old trick to remove vocals from a song was to rip the right channel, then the left, the combine them (since vocals are typically mixed in a third 'center' channel, though things like reverb or echo are applied to the right and/or left channels which sounds like what you are hearing).
I would play with the balance and mixer settings and see if you can get the vocals back. Also try other speakers or even headphones and see if you have the same problem.
If you got your songs from a music service, especially Rhapsody, the songs have a fixed-term DRM license on them. After a certain period of time - sometimes as little as 3 days - you have to resynchronize the songs to the music service from where you got the songs. If you let your music service subscription lapse, then the songs will not be usable until you renew your subscription. This process of resynchronizing the songs to the music service does not always go smoothly. Sometimes synchronizing through Rhapsody or another service does not resolve your issue - in this case, you will have to go through the long, tedious process of deleting the affected songs off of your player and reloading them - either through the music service or through Windows Media Player.
If you never want to deal with this problem again, the solution is to only download songs that are in mp3 format. Mp3 files do not expire once your music service subscription has expired, and they do not give you strange messages to resynchronize the files.
to philipyork: the speakers never will be detected in your pc, the hardware (plug and play) is the only detected for the computer, if u have a message saying no device sound then will be the audio card.
The only way for you to be able to play music on your mp3 player with those speakers is if you Connect the mp3 player to your PC and play the music threw there.remember you cannot use your speakers for portability it has to be connect to a power outlet constantly in order to work
first check the settings on the audio menu of the dvd player. make sur it is set to 5.1 (if available) otherwise set it to stereo and your system should decode it.
assuming the second step is okay : as other dvd you play seem to work) it still may be that your unit is decoding stereo inputs just fine and 5.1 is not working properly....
so if adjusting audio settings in dvd play back menu dont work,
check that the cables to the satellite speakers are connected correctly and all plugged in soundly ( voice is high frequency,- coming from satellites - the garbled noises you hear are the base ( low freq) elements of voice which are coming from the bass box ( that the X.1 part of 5.1) and so that is obviously working. ,
