I have configured Windows XP audio settings to accept 5.1, so that rules out that problem. My PC is brand new AMD ks-rock m/board with built-in 5.1 audio.
The problem seems to be a connection issue, after wiring up the satellite speakers to the subwoofer correctly and connecting to my PC I can only receive sound through the front 2 speakers and subwoofer. Or if I switch the connectors around I can receive the central and s/woofer, or the rear 2 speakers and s/woofer. But I cannot receive sound through all five speakers at once.
The coloured jacks going to the PC are; orange, green, and black.
However, the recievers at the rear of PC are coloured orange, green, and blue.
I have also tried to re-install the audio drivers and checked that they are operating okay in device manager.
Also, after ringing Logitech I was told to try the speakers on another device (like a dvd player) to make sure they are working alright. When I went to do this I realised that the dvd player receives different jacks. So I simply returned them to the shop and got a replacement set of speakers - that has'nt cured my problem, so I can only assume it is a connection issue and very probably something very simple that I'm overlooking. Can anyone help me?? Please.........
