How can UHD programs be down converted to HD

Comcast imposes a 2TB limit per month on streaming.  More and more programs are available in UHD, but are not worth using the bandwidth to stream/view in UHD.  My Home Theater with a JVC 790 projector has UHD-HDR capabilities and the ROKU ULTRA is set to automatically match the JVCs capabilities and UHD-HDR looks great.   How can I easily and quickly set the ROKU to stream only HD and thereby reduce my total bytes per month?

Re: How can UHD programs be down converted to HD


The simplest way is to manually configure Settings/Display type=720p or 1080p.

Some app/services also have resolution/bitrate settings (NetFlix/Disney+) but not all.
