When using my external HDD the "i" button will show the timline, resolution HDR symbol (if the content supports in HDR) and the chapter select. If i press the "i" button while using Netflix it will show me the bitrate of the stream. If i use the "i" button on my PS4 it shows resolution and HDR symbol (if the content supports in HDR).
Yes, it's definitely the drop down info bar that you always get when you turn the TV on to your cable input (if you have one). I'm using the default remote control, via the "123" button, middle left side, and when pushed the same drop down style menu that appears has the standard 4 colored function buttons, the "i" button, the numbers 1-6 or 7, and some additional commands to the right of all that.
Yea, I also have a HDD, however the only files I have are HD MP4's, and when pressed, the "i" button gives you a center focused info screen with basic data including resolution. It's interesting that this is NOT the drop down info bar you get on every other source. But I'm sure that's specific to the filetype.
Also, yes I also know how with the Netflix app, the "i" button when pressed puts the stream and resolution info permanently on screen, upper left corner.
And funnily enough, if I play Mandalorian from the Disney app on my PS4 (not Pro), pressing the "i" button will give me the drop down info just like when I use it with the cable source. It's 1080p non HDR, but that's because it's just a std PS4.
Overall, it's very convoluted. What else is new, though? lol

Yes, I'm just running the app on the TV. Does your Netflix app behave the same way when the "i" button is pressed as well? Or does it put the text on screen until you turn it off?

If you have looked, what shows do you see the biggest change with this addition? And yes, do we think that 4K has also somehow entered the picture with this development?
