It appears the only audio output from this television is an optical port on the back. If your speakers have an optical input, then you should be able to connect them. If, however, you have typical speakers with a 1/4 inch metal connector on the cable, then you will not be able to connect them.

I believe your tv has an audio output for 3.5mm jack (which is what the green jack on ur computer speakers are. IF NOT. you will need to get a rca left and right audio cable that splits to a 3.5mm jack. they can be found for cheap at your local radio shack.

The 55HT1U only has Optical Out (TOSLink) for audio, so you will need an intermediary receiver with optical-in in order to connect up most speaker systems. If you have a higher end set of PC speakers, it may have an optical port on the receiver module or subwoofer. If so, it'll work!
See for an example of what an optical cable/connector looks like

Turn off internal speakers

This is usually a menu option that you can reach with your remote. I don't have this particular TV, but if you can turn them off, it is usually a menu configuration option. Hunt around with your remote until you find the configuration menu and look for the "sound" settings.

If your TV has a headphone jack, try plugging a set of headphones into the TV to see if that disconnects the internal speakers. If it does, go to Radio Shack and buy an appropriately sized blank plug and just plug that in to the headphone jack to disconnect the speakers.

Model 55ht1u

Sorry, but I couldn't find any mention of P'n'P in this model's specifications.
Looks, like it just not equipped with that. Look at your Toshiba's remote control: if you don't see any PiP related buttons, it just not there. Definitely, has only one tuner, not for 2 tuner P'n'P broadcast. Some TVs must use external signal source for this feature, like an extra set top tuner box or DVD recorder with it's own ATSC tuner.
you may check TV's specs at: .
good luck,

My Toshiba 55HT1U volume not working when playing games

I believe you have connected your computer to the tv? Please note that if you connected via VGA or DVI it is a video only signal. You will need a seperate cable for sound output . Connect the audio out jack of your computer to the headphones port of a tv using a 3.5mm to 3.5mm connector like this

TOSHIBA 55HT1U only shows 480i resolution instead of 1080p ( Cable TV) shud be at least 720p

Your set will automatically be in the correct resolution. If your set is broadcasting in 480, then that is what it is receiving. I would check your cable or satellite box to verify they are putting out the correct resolution.

My Toshiba 55HT1U is showing 480p instead of 1080p. Why is it not on 1080p?

It is probably your video source. If you are using component video, some devices only output 480p.

Check the settings of your sources. The TV will display only what the device sends to it.

In most devices under a settings directory there will be settings labeled "Video" or "Resolution" Changing these settings to more appropriate High Definition resolutions should solve your problem.

Where do I plug in external wireless speakers

Depending on the speakers you have, they'll have different inputs.
Some have an rca input, some have a coaxial or a digital optical cable.
Your tv has a digital optical output.
Simply purchase a digital optical cable and plug it in your tv and your wireless speakers.
You'll have to change the sound output of the television in the settings menu.
It'll be under the sound area.
