5.1 sound help

Hello I am new here and I heard great things bout this board..But here is my issue I have my Logitech Z-5300e THX-Certified 280-Watt 5.1 Surround Sound PC and Gaming Speaker System and I can hook it up to my tv out rca in the back and it's an Vizio 58 4k but the hook up only allows me to use one of the 3 3mm plugs on the back of the sub that's what controls all the little speakers the cords are green pink black green is front black is sun pink is rear..My question is how can I get all 3 3mm to plug into something so I can use the 2rca that will get all 5.1 to work because right now I am only able to use the green which is only the fronts and sub?

It's a VIRTUAL channel unless stated otherwise.

You don't tell us what audio out options you have on your TV so its hard to offer specific advice.

If you have an older TV with analog out R/L RCA jacks then you can use the Video Game Console adapter that should have come with the 5.1 system.

If your TV only has digital outputs (Optical/Toslink or COAX) for audio you will need to buy a digital to analog adapter like this and connect that to the video came console adapter that came with your system.

<edit> ...plus whatever other matching cables you would need to complete the connection (ie Optical or COAX and/or RCA cables).

The R/L out of the TV is two-channel so you would use the Green 3mm two-Channel input on the subwoofer. You can connect from the TV two different ways depending on what your TV has. If the TV has audio out RCA R/L use an RCA to 3mm adapter/cable for the connection between the two. If your TV doesn't have Audio RCA outputs, use the 3mm headphone jack and a 3mm to 3mm cable between the two, but be sure it's stereo.
