Nexus HD 1080p streamed to Netgear ptv3000 only shows 720p
I get an extremely good picture streamed from my nexus to the TV via Netgear ptv3000 but I dont think its 1080p.
When I first boot the PTV3000 the splash screen comes on and the TV briefly displays 1080p indicating the format. Next I boot the Nexus 7 tablets Cast Screen application. The desktop of the tablet is then displayed on the TV. The thing that bothers me is that the TV now indicates 720p. I downloaded several 1080p video clips to test it. I also played some low def video 320x240 to see what the TV would indicate. In all circumstances the TV displayed 720p.
I also have taken some HD 1080p videos with the Nexus 7 2013 and played them back through the TV and again the TV displays 720p.
I would like to know why the video signal streamed from the Nexus 7 2013 is not 1080p. If anybody knows a surefire way to test the video output format I would like to know.
Also, my TV is a Sharp 52" 120 Hz
