The speakers are designed so that you can switch between a variety of different audio sources. there are 5.1ch analog 3.5mm jacks to hook up to a computer's 5.1 soundcard, SPDIFs (both analog, and digital), and a bunch of other goodies. I have their predecessors myself (the Z-680s), and they are excellent speakers in themselves.

but has to answer your question, here's a PDF of the user manual, explaining how to connect each source (click here).

also, here's a link to a complete specification breakdown, if you want to know the details regarding what this system is and what it's capable of.

hope you enjoy them :D

verify if the computer has a digital output that matches your speakers (5.1 or 7.1). Also, verify that the cable leading from the PC to the main speaker box is OK. Also, the speakers may come with an installation CD, so you'll need to install the accompanying control application.

Since Logitec Z-5500 is a 5.1 Speaker System you need to purchase a Sound Card to be able to connect it with your pc. You can get a Sound card starting with a price tag of 20 Pounds.

Well you have some options, you can either live with 2 speakers and change the settings back to default. Im assuming the colors you have are orange black and green. black= the surround sound speakers. orange= center and subwoofer. green=right left front

Now if u want true surround sound then you need to buy a new card that had all the ports for your speakers.

Can the cable ends be converted to fit a DVD?

You can certainly purchase a cable or an adaptor to connect the speakers to almost anything - this however is not the issue - z5300 computer speakers have an impedance of 8 ohms, whereas most home theatre systems will be set up to use speakers with an impedance of 4 Ohms or 6 ohms or 8 ohms - using the wrong type in the wrong configuration is very likely to result in damage. Also the speakers contain their own amplifier, and are designed to accept an input that has not been amplified to speaker levels before - most tv/dvd audio output will be amplified, depending on the model, so will almost certainly destroy your speakers unless you have a low amplification output on your tv/dvd. If you post back with the make and model of your tv and dvd player, hopefully i can find the necessary info to describe how you could make the connection if it is possible. Logitech says; "Logitech speakers are powered speakers and are designed to be used with a home computer. However, it is still possible to connect your speakers to many other devices. You can connect any Logitech speaker to any device that has a pre-amp mini-headphone jack. Home amplifiers will normally contain a standard ¼" headphone jack. You'll need to purchase a ¼" to 1/8th" adapter to connect your Logitech speakers to a home amplifier. Note: Under no circumstances should you connect your Logitech speaker system to an amplified output such as the rear outputs of a home amplifier. Doing so may cause damage to your Logitech speakers as well as your home amplifier." Hope this helps - please post back with details :)
