1080p Branding?

If I remember way back to 2011 or 2012, when you played a video with rovideoscreen it would show dots, and a branding logo like HD or FULLHD for 1080p.
On a roku 3 today, I can't seem to get the FULLHD branding logo next to the dots anymore - was it removed?
I've tried it with the new "Streams" metadata as well as the old setting content qualities/bitrates and urls with this metadata - also tried changing the contenttype from episode to movie but it doesn't show up.

item.StreamQualities=["HD"]
item.StreamBitrates=[2401]
item.StreamUrls=["http://serverurl/HD.mp4"]
item.StreamFormat="mp4"
item.HDBranded=true
item.FrameRate=24
item.ContentQuality="HD"
item.FullHD=TRUE
item.Framerate=24
item.isHD=TRUE
item.ContentType="movie"

The roku is set to 1080p, and the TV is connected with HDMI - and it's loading the correct stream as it's the only one specified - and it plays - just how could I tell if it's downsampling the 1080p source to 720p and then upsampling it, or if it's actually showing it at 1080p ?

Re: 1080p Branding?

I remember it worked on roku1 in 2011 or so, because we made a demo to show to clients which showed the 1080p/fullhd branding.
Fullhd=true is included in the code already and no, doesn't seem to do anything different.
I was going to check the 1080p showcase channel but roku made them replace their code with 'this channel has been discontinued' - so...
