I recently bought a 26 inch, NS-26L450A11 HDTV for my apartment room and am wondering if there's a way to change the resolution for regular, cable TV? I was able to get the resolution up to the full 1080p without trouble on my Xbox 360 by changing the resolution from the 360's picture menu settings. But when I switch to the ATV channel for standard, cable television (connected by a coaxial cable if I'm not mistaken), it only displays at 480i (shows when I change from Component to ATV). So I'm wondering how I can change the resolution to go higher (even to 720)?
I've tried going through the Picture and Channel options but have had no luck. The display models at the store I bought it from were showing TV stations and were in (clearly) higher resolution/quality, so I'm confused as to why it'd be different for me. Does it have to do with connecting via coaxial cable (need a different cable for higher resolution)? If so, are there any cables that can offer top-quality picture which connect to regular, cable, coaxial outputs?
Also, does my Insignia HDTV have a Game Mode option that can be turned on/off? If so, how/where? I also tried looking for that in the menus, and while the picture quality in the games is great, it does look a bit blurred/fuzzy on Forza Motorsport 3's environments when racing/driving (which I don't recall seeing quite as much when using a regular TV).

Welcome to Community@Insignia™!
Coaxial is the lowest resolution of all the methods by which you can connect cable to your TV. Are you using a cable box? If so, you may adjust the output settings on the box to a compatible higher resolution (720p, 1080p). If you're not using a cable box, you may wish to consult your cable company for options.
