You can check by pressing the "info or display or recall" or similar button on the TV's remote. If that doesn't work you can check by changing inputs on the TV because it'll usually display the incoming signal for a few seconds when you do this. You can probably set the output of the Fibe box to 1080P on the Fibe 4K boxes if you want, although you may wish to leave it at 720P since that's what the incoming HD signal is. See the following FAQ:

https://www.digitalhome.ca/forum/30-57s-home-theatre-faqs/76129-faq-hdtv-formats.html

As discussed in the FAQs, most TVs are better at the upconversion than the box, but feel free to experiment to see what works for you.

@vanhalen26 If you're watching a 4K channel you have a high bit-rate with fewer motion artifacts than if you're watching a regular HD channel at 720p. You may notice a better picture even if your 4K PVR is set to output 720p. You can change the settings on the PVR to output 1080p, which should give you a better picture when watching a 4K channel. You should also check the picture quality of the HD channels to see which setting gives you a better picture. People have reported varying results, so it may depend on the model of TV and personal preference.

Had Bell fiber optic cable connection installed yesterday in our condo and was upgraded to HH3000. Connection was not in a good place (laundry room) as old coax cable. When using 4K receiver Link light flashes from green light to red (mostly red). Picture quality does not seem to suffer and technician indicated as long as light cycling and no apparent picture problem that this supposedly acceptable. Indicated HH3000 position in condo was the problem and to keep laundry door open to maximize signal.

Any comments ????? suggestions !!!!!

Run an Ethernet cable from the HH3000 to the PVR or try the Wi-Fi PODS Bell provides to boost the wireless signal -https://www.bell.ca/Bell_Internet/WiFi.
