    But, when I connect the DVD to the TV there is no problem, it sounds for both sides right and left?? any other idea?

  • luistoronto Feb 12, 2008

    ok, my DVD is a Samsung DVD-R130, when i connect it directly to the TV i use the red/white/yellow cables that came with the DVD player. After I bought the logitech X-540 I connected this way. The three cables yellow/black/green (sub centre/rear/front) coming from the back of the surround equipment, I connect the green output to the green input of the extra 3 input cable that comes in the surround equipment suppously for game consoles. with a cable that I had in my drawer (that has in one end a red and white input and in the other end a red and white input and output together) I connect the red/white input to the output of the game console cable, the other end I connect directly to the DVD and the red/white that were on the DVD going to the TV i connect on top of the other ones to close the connection. I know its kind of messy, but the cables from the surround system dont fit on the DVD directly, when I connect the Ipod to the surround system i just plug the green output to the Ipod input and when I conect it to the Laptop i connect also the green one to the headphones input.

    Do you have any other Idea on how to connect DVD to X-540 without so many cables???

    Thank you very much

Bad connection on that one speaker, if you have tested the system with other equipment and it works thn you MUST have a bad connection INSIDE you DVD player. If your DVD had a whole channel out on your output amplifier I beleive then 2 speakers would not work so more than likely you have a bad solder joint inside system for DVD output

    OK... so when you connect to the TV what type of connection are you using for audio? Are you using the exact same cables and plugs in the back of the DVD that youused for your computer speakers????? Do you see where I am going with this ? Let me know and if possible may I have the model number of this DVD player so I can look at its specs to help you more?

I have a JVC DVD player that doesnt come with surround sound but i have surround sound speakers is there something I can buy so that I am able to use the speakers

If you have surround speakers with a surround system, then connect the Player to the surround system using for example RCA cables (White and Red).

If you have speakers only, connecting many speakers to a non-surround system won't give you surround.
In surround systems the sound is controlled, elaborated and distributed through the speakers by a circuit.

If you wnt surround sound the alternatives are :

  1. Connecting a surround system (eg.Home theater, receiver) to the player (amp+speakers)
  2. Upgrading the DVD to one with surround.
Let me know if you need more help.
