Is There a Test Pattern I Can Access on the 630?

I could've sworn I stumbled upon a test pattern on my 630 at some point and I could use it now. Am I crazy? Haha, that's rhetorical -- but does anyone know where that is?

I took a look at my 630 and could not find a test pattern on preferences. I think I remember a set-up on my old 530 that had color bars and maybe a test pattern. Not sure about it though. That maybe before HD TV sets and HDMI became mainstream back when output could be set to channel 3 or 4 or composite video. Just my speculation...

I seem to remember a test pattern on one of the older receivers but don't recall seeing one on the 6xx series

994

I think I have the "Advanced" channel scheme (CNN on 095), but I tried 994 and got color bars in 4:3 format.

If you have CNN HD on channel 095 you are on the Classic lineup, RuralRouter.

Not sure if you get it, but KCTS PBS Seattle runs an "Engineering Test" with colour bars in the early morning some days. I just checked their schedule and it shows on Monday, September 10th, 3AM and again September 24th.

I haven't been on here in a week or so and when I came on, I saw a bunch of replies to my question! Thanks to all who had ideas and to @bubbaspeed @RuralRouter and @57 for colour bar places. Very helpful. :-)
