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

SOLUTION: Dudes, Had the same issue, got an old PS2 mouse (same plug), cut off the plug, fiddled with different combinations. Joining 2 wires turns it on, another 2 puts the volumn to full... Jasonxart
The best thing to do is to contact the manufacturers. From this i understood that your speaker system is new. You surely have the manufacturer's guarantee. So its better to contact them than to get it repaired or replaced for free. Sir please do not try to open the sub as it will void the guarantee policy.
Hope your subs come into play as soon as possible....... All the best...
Im not sure if this will help u but check ur Remote's power botton.
Maybe its stuck?
It happened to me before... Was wondering y it turns itself on/off and found out later that the power botton on remote is stuck.
U should hear the clicking sound everytime u turn it on or off.
Otherwise... something else is wrong with the power switch on ur remote.
For those searching the answer "How to replace/repair Creative Inspire 5300 volume control":
Its simple : looking at the back of the suboofer, the pins are as follows from top right, clockwise : LED VDD , Balance pot middle leg, GND, pots + legs, Volume pot middle leg, on switch input. Connect one pots ends to GND and the other ends to pots +, connect a switch on GND and on switch input, anode of led to LED VDD, cathode to GND (there is a 1,8k resistor inside so no external resistor needed)
I'm having this same problem and have sort of solved it with a really wierd technique I found at Logitech. Evidently this problem is related to the control pod rather then the RCA jack. Try this:
Unplug the control pod from the subwoofer
Turn off the main switch
Turn the volume knob one full turn, tap the knob
Repeat again (2 times)
Replug the control pod
Turn on the main switch and the control pod
See what happens
I found that this got the speaker working finicky after it was almost totally useless. It seems to be cutting out randomly, but fidgeting with the control pod or it's connector jack fixes it. No clue what the deal is here, but your problem is identical to mine so take some time to screw around with these components with music running so you can hear if it suddenly works.
ODDS are slim without a connecting unit best bet to accomplish this is to get the dds-100 by creative good luck though as this item is discontinued and expensive even still to date. you will need osmething to decode the signal from the tv. a receiver with any surround capabilities will also work
The system comes with l remote which provides controls
for "Power", "Master Volume", "Bass (Subwoofer) Volume" and "Matrix
Mode" . Matrix mode allows you to
spread stereo sound to all speakers where your sound card may not have
the ability to do so. I find that the "Stereo Surround" setting works best as opposed to the recommended "CMSS" setting
Good day and happy holidays
you have to look at back of your comp, if you has a 5.1 speaker first, like Creative Audigy, live, or X-FI, then according with the cables, colors, must be, Green . black, according for output sound, see manual for the cables and put at back according.
