How do we know that the other 4K content is also being streamed at the same resolution being given to EL Fuente ?.... Doesn't Netflix decide what bit-stream to give at any given time to a particular title, based on their server capacities, traffic loads, etc ?....
Is there a way to do do the same "El Fuente" test to the other 4K titles (to figure out why our picture is worse now) ???
The proof that the SD designation is erroneous is the fact that you played the test clip and saw for yourself that the clip went to the highest bitrate stream while the display continued to show 2160SD.
To repeat. The display has wrongly been mislabeled.
The display on the NF app wasn't actually created for us customers to use.
The techs are not in any hurry to correct the mislabeled status display...
Because it's not there for us, or intended for us to use.
Any degradation in the stream, will be reflected in the status display when you see it drop any lower than 2160.
Ignore the SD-Jedi Hand Wave These are not the initials you're looking for....
.. concentrate only on the numbers.
Move along now. No speeding on the bantha path please.
