    Not all televisions tell you, in which case you can't really find out.

    The easiest way is to press the ps button whilst watching the video, if the text is the same size as when you press the ps button in the xmb you're High def.

    For Samsung LCDs, Info button on the remote will show you the exact resolution the TV is receiving... Remember, that is only the resolution being 'received' not displayed. The TV will scale the output at the highest resolution it can.
