When I watch a Netflix 4K movie thru my Hopper I am getting 2160p from the TV info reading. Also when I play the 4K HDR Winter Olympics from my EHD I get the same reading. Is 2160p considered 4K or HD?

Sometimes I wonder if the Hopper steps down the connection or if the shown D/L speed is inaccurate. I setup a Velop Router by my modem, setup a 2nd one b y my Hopper and connected it via Ethernet. WiFi D/L speed is about 250 on my phone at the Hopper, but the Hopper shows 50 MB/s

When downloading OnDemand, my Hopper claims it is getting 100+Mbps (on my 100Mbps Internet connection). This is my physical network layout between the Hopper and the Internet:

Hopper -> Ethernet -> Gigabit switch -> MoCA adapter -> RG59 -> MoCA adapter -> Gigabit switch -> Edge Router -> Residential Gateway -> ONT -> AT&T's Off-premises Equipment

The slowest speed it should encounter between itself and the Residential Gateway is about 540Mbps at the MoCA adapters.

Is there another way to test the speeds the Hopper is experiencing?

The only way I know of is in the Diagnostics menu, select Status, Send Status, then Test Connections.
