Search "Test Patterns"

 

It gives you resolution that it's outputting at, frame rate video playing at, and even says left channel, right channel so can make sure sound out correct speakers.

 

Also shows how many kbps it's doing as well. Mines doing 160000 kbps.

160000 kbps is 160 Mbps. That's something strange there.

 

Netflix 1080p HD streaming peaks at 5800 kbps.

The streams have different resolutions and FPS. Obviously if you test 4K with 60fps you will use more than 1080p. Interested to know what would make it jump from 5800 kbps to 160000 kbps though, as NEtflix uses variable encoding and mostly caps the stream rate.

I remember there were some on there at 24, 25, and 50 FPS which were good to see when displays were munging that up totally. Good to see how terrible those "smart" tvs are that just stash an android STB inside plugged into a now-removed HDMI port vs the real ones like LG etc.

Don’t know if I read it wrong or they fixed it up, getting 16000kps at resolution 3840x2160

Those numbers look better, frame rate 23.976.

It’s a sub $1000 LG 4K, so maybe why frame rate is down, test direct on TV and Apple TV, same peak numbers but the Apple TV got there quicker.

Both on wifi as to far for cable.
