So I have a 26" 720P monitor, model number ln26360 What confusses me is the number of resolutions that are being diplayed. I hope I havn't lost anyone yet but lets say, I use this LCDTV and I use an HDMI wire, is it 1080p or not because I think the resolution for HDMI wires is like 1920x1080 Here is one question what is actually displaying ? and aswell, im not sure if you can but can you choose a resolution with the hdmi say go down a resolution from 1920x1080

So 1366x768 is the normal pixel count, say im just using a normal tv end that goes into a vga cable so thats what the screen is showing on the screen, but say if I go into a video game and I adjust the game resolution around 1680x1050 or 1680x1200, which resolution is actually showing ?

Please help I am still lost on this subject and its been two years, and I still can't figure out why these resolutions confuse me

If your monitor is 720P, that is the highest resolution it can display. Period. I can't quite follow all your trains of thought, but I get the idea that you believe the different connection types always display a particular resolution, which is wrong. They just have a max resolution they can display if the hardware is able to.

So eventhough the hdmi's max resoluton is 1920x1080 it will only display at 720P on the TV. And no matter what resolution I use in video games the screen will always have 1366x768 dimensions and the game resolutions basically are useless and there is no point of adjusting its resolution

The resolution is capped at 720p due to that being the max your monitor can display.

Exactly. Even if you set it lower, it will still display the same resolution, that's how LCDs work. You can read more about LCD resolutions here:
