@colin lawson I think the only (very basic) information is given from the "i" info button on the remote, like HD or SD for any given programme.

This is further "muddied" by the fact that HD can mean 720 or 1080. Here are no "apps" that can show this while a programme is being watched, but personally I think there should be more "info" on the "info" screen to shows this.

I thought the OP (@colin lawson ) was asking how to tell what the actual broadcast signal was, before being upscaled and displayed, so sorry if I confused things.
Certainly a 4K TV will, as you say, upscale to "fill the screen" pixels from the lower resolution source. But, on some sets, SD can look awful, unless at a distance away (say 9 to 10 feet).

Given that some channels on Freeview/Sky/Foxtel are still only using SD (and even on "HD" channels, I think SOME older stuff still goes ou at SD) , have a read of this quote from :

"Perhaps the biggest problem with 4K is upscaling. Upscaling means taking something of a lower resolution (like 480p DVD) and stretching it out to fit on higher resolution display. All 4K TVs upscale, obviously. However, not all of them do it very well. Poorly upscaled content can look grainy and soft with jagged edge and loss of detail. Even older standard definition can look just plain bad no matter what 4K TV you buy."

      I recently bought a UHD tv 65UP75003. I'm not sure, but I think there was a problem after the software upgrade. The TV is connected via an HDMI cable to a DTV receiver that sends 1080i resolution and the problem is in the horizontal line that travels from top to bottom. The line is not visible at progressive resolution. What I did: Reset the TV, receiver, bought a new high speed HDMI cable ...
      Please help and what to try next?

      It would be great if I didn't need to use an Amazon fire stick on my awesome oled tv to get the apps I want.
      Please update the webos to at least 4.0 on modelsOLED65B6PB6

      Dear LG TV.,
      Could you please give a feature to make the 55 inch TV to 32 inch TV ? 
      Like under Settings -> Aspect ratio -> Screen size reducer
      So, that we can reduce the power bill and can switch back to 55inch when watching movies.
      This will be a good feature kindly take into consideration.
      If you like it Kindly let us know some when can we expect this update in feature (Some approximate).
       
      Thanks & Regards,
      Srini.

      I have an LG Model: 42LB6500-SF, webOS TV Version 1.2.0-2810
      In Settings/General/Time & Date I only have two options to choose from: Santiago and Eastern Island.
      I live in a different time zone, how can I choose the correct one.
      Thanks in advance

      I do not wish to have the weather app or search function, which together take up almost 1/3rd of the screen, nor do I want any of the other bars, but the application bar on my home screen.  (All I want is the application bar and nothing else.)
      How can I edit the home screen to do this?
