answer 1
Yes and no--it depends on what type of media you are trying to view, copy protection features in certain devices/sources, etc.

If you aren't using HDMI to connect your audio from the TV, you are left with only the headphone/audio-out jack, which is a 3.5mm (1/8") "headphone" type jack. You can buy a cheap splitter that has a male 3.5mm plug on one end and the familiar red/white RCA plugs or female sockets on the other end, so you can connect your receiver via RCA. There is also an option in the TV's audio setup menu where you can toggle the audio out between "headphones" and "audio out". If you select audio out, it will disable the TV's volume control, so it always sends the same level of signal to the receiver. (This is cool because then you can't accidentally turn the volume up or down on the TV remote.) The other good news is that the jack on this TV is located on the back of the unit, so you won't have to look at stupid wires coming out of the front panel like some other TVs.

This type of audio connection will be fine for some things (over-the-air TV, Roku streaming, etc.) but due to the copy protection from some sources (many DVD & Blu-Ray players, for example) you won't be able to connect those devices to the TV via HDMI and still have the TV output the audio to your receiver. The copy protection kicks in and disables the display. Google "HDCP" for more info on how/why this happens. Interestingly enough, HDCP doesn't always work. For example, I can play DVDs on my computer, connected via HDMI to the TV, and the audio output from the TV still works and the video displays fine--I've effectively bypassed the HDCP without trying. If I put the same disc into my standalone DVD player, it cuts out the video and gives me some warning about HDCP and makes me think the only solution is to buy a new audio receiver with HDMI. You *may* encounter the same problem with some cable boxes, but I'm not sure.

The other workaround would be to connect those devices to the TV with component video (R,G,B cables, plus the red & white RCA for audio) which bypasses the HDCP issue, but then you aren't getting the 1080p signal into the TV. And there's only one set of component video inputs on this TV.

So the bottom line is, yes, you can watch over the air TV and have your non-HDMI receiver play the audio. But if you want to connect a device to the TV via HDMI, you might not be able to get your receiver to play the sound from the TV.

That is one of the views. Go into the menu under video. Advanced Video and select one of the other views; Wide, Cinema, Zoom, Standard. You can also do it through a button near the bottom of your clicker (controller)

If you are connecting your gaming system correctly, on the remote, press input and the COMP/AV feature should be highlighted.

If your Wii is connected correctly (red and white audio cables connected to the red and white ports labeled AUDIO and yellow cable connected to the green port labeled VIDEO), you should select the Input labeled COMP/AV.

No. This model has no picture-in-picture option. Insignia manuals are available on the insignia website. I recommend taking a look at the manual for the model you're looking at to get a rundown of features.

It would be helpful to know your video signal source, so I apologize if this answer is too generic. It sounds like you have a standard definition signal coming to your TV. While some tweaking may be able to improve the picture quality somewhat, it will still have a maximum resolution of 480i. For a crystal clear HD picture, you will need to upgrade your cable/ satellite service to HD.

If you have a cable box you may have to call your cable company to program your box to 1020p. If not then check your picture settings.

Your TV will display the signal it receives. In this case, the station you are viewing is most likely broadcasting a 720p signal, so that's what shows in the station information on your TV.
