How Can You Tell If Your TV Is Streaming Amazon Prime In UHD and/or HDR?

Right, I have a Sony 65X8509C and I am accessing UHD and HDR content via the built in Amazon Prime App.

Apart from looking at the image is there a concrete way of making sure I my TV is receiving and displaying UHD/HDR correctly?

Thanks in advance.

On my Panasonic when i press up on the Dpad it will give you the info bar and within that,top left it tell's you what it quality is being streamed, can't say for HDR as i do not have a HDR set.

Thanks. On my Sony pressing up (or down in fact) brings up the name of the file playing and a timeline. See attached.

Now I realise that it says [Ultra HD] in the title, but I believe that that is merely part of the title rather than an indication of the stream quality.
