I checked with one of the Fibe TV installers and he said that the source video signal is not changed at the headend. If the source was 1080i then that gets transmitted in the MPEG-4 envelope to the STB.

So, I called into Fibe TV support and asked about the source video format and whether they transcode it to 720p like their satellite signal - the guy went off to talk to a technician.
His answer was - No. They do not transcode the source video signal - they leave as it is. I asked if he was sure and he said the technician was certain.

At some point I have to believe what I'm being told.

Not that I have found.
Under the System Information folder there are screens for -
System info,
Network info,
System resources,
Guide info and
Network PVR info.
Lots of interesting stuff but nothing about incoming video format.
Checked a couple of forums to see if there were some shortcuts to get to diagnostic info, but no luck so far.
