If you look carefully, you will see HOT marked on the input board. Only a small portion of that board is cold and only that section is cold.
But, the easiest way to tell is using the RF adapter. If your RF output ground (the metal screw part) is isolated from the internal tuner shield, it’s a good indicator the set is a hot chassis. This rule seems to apply for most hot chassis sets I have come across. You have to open the set to find out though, or have a reliable schematics to make the decision with.
Some RF only sets are actually not hot chassis either. So, assuming a chassis is hot or not hot based on just RF and composite input is not a good idea.
