How do I know what resolution is being displayed?


Mark Tiede

Question

So I got an Xbox One X which has games that display 4k.  And also the YouTube app displays 4k videos.  How do I know that I have everything set up correctly and the TV is ACTUALLY displaying 4k video mode?

Sometimes even HD looks really good and I haven't watched 4k stuff to know if I'm really seeing it.

It would be nice if there were an option in the TV for displaying the actual resolution in the corner or something.  I tried to set things up through my Denon AVR X2000 receiver and the Xbox complained about the TV not being able to do 4k.  I don't know if I had something set up wrong or not, so I just hooked the Xbox up to the TV in hdmi 1.  And I think the Xbox THINKS it is now capable of at least SOME 4k, but it would be nice to verify that the TV is doing what I think it is doing.

Anybody know an app or something that would help?

 

oh, I DID see a "+HDR" on the screen for a moment at some point.  Don't remember what triggered it nor how to get it to display it again.

Pick up your magic remote.  Shake it until you get a pointer on the tv screen.  Press the little scroll wheel button down.  This should display the input source in the upper left corner such as "HDMI1".  Then motion with the remote until the pointer is over that "HDMI1" and press the little scroll wheel again.  That should show the information about that source.

Ah, I got it.  I don't usually use the LG remote since I have the Logitech Harmony Elite to control all my devices, but apparently there is one thing it may do that the Elite does not.  If I click on the picture, then the SOURCE shows up in the upper left corner.  If I click THAT, then it shows the actual resolution, hdr, etc. 

THAT was what I was looking for!

Just registered to thank you. This works! (as mentioned, with external sources only, but that's what I was looking for)

No idea about any other TVs and Remotes other than my own.  The magic remote should show an arrow on the screen when you pick it up.  If you don't see it, usually shaking the remote will "wake" it up.  If you don't have a magic remote, I don't know how it works.  See if you can find the manual.

I have a magic remote and the arrow shows up. But then what? There is no input source in the upper right corner. 

The manual is pretty useless.

Newbie,

   Did you follow the other steps?

 

"Pick up your magic remote.  Shake it until you get a pointer on the tv screen.  Press the little scroll wheel button down.  This should display the input source in the upper left corner such as "HDMI1".  Then motion with the remote until the pointer is over that "HDMI1" and press the little scroll wheel again.  That should show the information about that source."

 

This assumes that the "input source" is something external, like HDMI2, for instance.

When I watch a 4k video and I use the magic remote to see the resolution it says 2160p and nok 4k, does anyone know if my settings are wrong?

Resolution is in 2 directions,  vertical and horizontal.  Standard "4k" is 3840 x 2160 (tall x wide).  So the 3840 is nearly 4,000 hence the 4k (a generous round off and probably a misuse of the "k" which usually means 1024).   

So the 2160p means how many pixels of vertical resolution (the TALL direction).  The p means "progressive" as opposed to interlaced.  In the old days, every other line of resolution was scanned on each scan of the screen.  Now electronics are fast enough and pixels stay illuminated long enough that it makes all 2160 lines in one scan.  

 

So it sounds like you ARE watching 4k.

      Becoming more sustainable means a commitment to using fewer resources, creating less waste, and doing everything possible to ensure a healthy planet for future generations. LG Electronics embraces this challenge and continues to take steps to reduce its environmental impact through an extensive program of ESG management. Along with its ambitious Zero Carbon 2030 initiative and goal to transition completely to renewable energy by 2050, LG offers innovative solutions that can help consumers to live more in balance with nature today.

      LG recently had an opportunity to demonstrate its eco-conscious exhibit for its state-of-the art HVAC solutions at Korea Energy Show 2021, South Korea’s largest annual energy exhibition. Instead of wasting new resources on a temporary exhibit, LG used prefabricated shipping containers and adopted recycled materials such as wood waste to create a unique, visually interesting space.

      Exhibiting a complete range of highly efficient LG HVAC solutions suitable for homes, offices, schools as well as other indoor environments, the highlight of the exhibit was a new commercial air conditioner made more efficient via an AI engine.

      LG’s latest HVAC solutions leverage smart technologies to help create better indoor air quality while simultaneously cutting energy consumption. LG’s ceiling-mounted 1 Way Cassette with comprehensive air purification system cleans, cools and heats the air to keep the home comfortable all year around.

      Other LG innovations on exhibit at the show included the LG Energy Storage System (ESS) and Building Energy Control (BECON), a powerful duo that together create a total energy management solution for businesses. Also on display was the LG 4-Way DUAL Vane Cassette which employs UVnano technology and an antibacterial drain pan to enhance the hygiene of the unit and the airflow produced.1
      LG showcased its first GHP Hybrid Heat Pump system air conditioner, a cost-effective option for educational and governmental facilities. LG’s hybrid solution combines the advantages of electric- and gas-powered climate control systems to deliver superb performance while reducing the cost of cooling and heating.2

      To further minimizing its footprint, LG moved to using recycled materials for the packaging of the outdoor units of its system air conditioners. Instead of using expanded polystyrene in its packaging, LG opted for expanded polypropylene as it offers improved cushioning and protection for its products. LG estimates that switching to reusable expanded polypropylene for all its AC packaging will cut its annual paper usage by 85 tons and polystyrene usage by 19 tons.

      After the conclusion of Korea Energy Show 2021, LG donated the exhibition containers to Habitat Korea, the South Korean branch of the global nonprofit Habitat for Humanity. The repurposed containers will be utilized by the organization as a dedicated education center.
      As LG’s efficient, eco-responsible HVAC solutions demonstrate, creating a healthy, comfortable indoor environment doesn’t have to come at the expense of sustainability. With innovations that carefully consider the needs of its customers and the well-being of the planet, LG is helping to bring about a

      1 Testing conducted by FITI Testing and Research Institute verified the LG DUAL Vane Cassette resulted in the reduction of 99 percent of Staphylococcus bacteria and colon bacillus.
      2 Based on cooling/heating load of 52HP (GHP 32HP and Multi V 20HP) and the proper energy source (electricity or gas), the LG GHP Hybrid Heat Pump can save up to 28 percent of the energy cost (electricity and gas combined) compared to the energy cost of using Multi V alone. Operation cost may vary depending on load conditions, climate and other environmental factors.
