Can I watch videos in 4K from the YouTube app?

I have the Hopper 3 with the YouTube app and I have a 4K TV. However, when I play any of the 4K YouTube videos from the app my TV only indicates that it is receiving a 1080i signal. I haven't been able to find a resolution setting for the YouTube app like there is for YouTube online. My internet connection is fast enough to handle a 4K signal. Is there something I'm missing or will the YouTube app not play in 4K through the Hopper 3?

Last I read, YouTube on the Hopper does not support 4K. 4K on Netflix does work.

Sadly though, the 4K signals are so heavily compressed front Netflix, I find the digital noise unbearable to watch. (But I used to run an encoding studio, so perhaps I am just more sensitive to it than most.) I find a lot of the HD content very noisy too.
