Question about Logitech Z-5300 Computer Speakers

1 Answer

Using Without WIRED REMOTE

Hello Experts,
I have logitech z-5300 and for decoding i m using Creative DDTS-100.
Everything is awesome, everything is working fine but the only problem which i was aware of is the Power Button and channel volume adjustments which is on Speakers own Remote so it needs to switch on all the times.
All i want is to DISCONNECT the Wired Remote and wish the speakers to RUN without using the REMOTE with full volume output (RAW OUTPUT) to the Decoder so it can be adjusted by the decoder.
Hope you understand what i need
any possiblity

    hello Tony 

    thanks for your reply,

    let me explain a little bit more there is a SERIAL CONNECTOR at the back of SUBWOOFER suppose to connect WIRED REMOTE.
    The speakers are connected to the DECODER and DECODER is connected to the sound card's digital connection.
    you are right the way you are saying it should work but in Logitech Z-5300 you cant bypass the remote. even the standby button is on the remote if we disconnect the remote from the speaker we are not even able to switch on.
    there are 2 power switch one is at the back of subwoofer (main)  and other is on the remote (Standby button) i want to bypass the Remote so that speakers can be turn on without touching the remote so it can be adjusted by the Decoder
    hope this might clear the situation

All I could suggest is run the decoder off the line-out of your soundcard, then regardless of what the volume or power setting is to your speakers, the signal will still come through?

Hello Sir, As I wish to buy a home theatre speaker system.And my budget is upto Rs.5500.I have searched for the same in internets,I found two products that are compatible to me.The products are iball...

Both the speakers you have mentioned are multimedia speakers and don't have Dolby Digital, ProLogic or DTS decoders built in. So if your DVD player does not have 5.1 analogue out , only two speakers will work.
Among the two the creative sounds better but like you mentioned the I ball has a remote and higher output on paper !!.
My recommendation is Logitech X-540.Check the link below.

Connect an additional wired keyboard to your pc. And when the freeze happens check if the pc responds at all, using the wired keyboard. If its not responding , its an indication of a faulty PSU or motherboard.

I have a logitech 890. The remote only turns the tv on and off but nothing else.

this remote has a help button to resolve setup issues. you should see a message on the screen ask ing if you need help. If not this function can be activated using the setup software. Try using the remote to watch TV. Then press the help button(be sure to have the remote pointed at the TV). The remote will attempt to fix itself. the screen will then ask if that fixed the problem-choose yes or no. Continue to follow the prompts until everything is the way you want it.
This should get everything working for you. I assume you did connect the remote to your computer and went through the setup software.
I use this remote and I love it. Just be sure when using it to give time for it to send commands to all the devices.

You must balance your speakers. It is not the DDTS-100. I had the same thing with active speakers. Check your speakers separately though. If it still sounds like it sound comes from underneath the surface, the speakers are maybe broke. If not, get a new DDTS-100.

You can slide a flat screwdriver underneath the black faceplate and prise it up; it is glued on and will stick back down easily on its own. The screws you need to access are underneath.
