On the LG CX OLED TV’s, there is a hidden info screen that can be accessed by pressing the three dots, on the magic remote, followed by “information”. This brings up info on resolution, aspect ratio, and audio format. What I would like to know is whether the resolution displayed is telling you the resolution of the source or the TV? If you use Sky Q, then the resolution displayed on the TV screen changes depending on what input resolution you’re using on the Sky box. This leads me to believe that this info menu on the TV only tells you the resolution being received by the TV, rather than the actual resolution of the source content.

Is this a true statement?

Yes.

TV cannot read the source resolution of the media, the set top box has its own output resolution with its own scaling system.
