Just moved and had the Wireless Video Bridge + 4 new wireless Genie clients installed yesterday. The new UI update feels odd just because it's unaccustomed, but more importantly, it looks awful on our 65" LG OLED screen. The same was true on the smaller TV's we have until I went to Settings > Video and set "Native" to ON. That seemed to smooth the UI text and graphics on those, but the same measure appears to have no effect on our 65" LG OLED model OLED65C6P.
Any info, good news or bad, would be welcome and appreciated.

Thanks for responding. I'll look at that, although I was pretty sure we were already running it with power-save disabled. The TV was unplugged for several days during our move, however, so it wouldn't be surprising to find all the settings reverted to defaults.

:welcome to Satelliteguys Scrawny Nelson!

Yup, probably something in your settings. My 65" Vizio has a clear picture.

I have a 55” LG B7P OLED and the guide looks fine. The default settings on the tv with the power saving mode made PQ look like crap. Once I changed it for all my HDMI inputs it looks great!

I would Suggest you invest in a UPS (1500) at least and connect all A/c out to it -It will save Your TV and Everything from a lot of issue's over time -also they will last a lot longer -Direct A/c Power Is a Killer

I just bought a new 55" LG 4K set and had all kinds of issues with the C61K and the set not communicating properly. Resolutions weren't available, the screen going pink on 4K channels. I went into the settings and turned of the quick start and while the TV takes and extra 15 seconds to turn on, everything works perfectly now.

I now believe this is what I've got happening. My TV's power-save features were already turned off, but in the client's settings, only the 4:3 aspect ratio and 480p resolution are available. (The picture itself actually looks great, and doesn't appear to be subject to these crippled settings; only the DTV GUI looks bad.) I'll look into that quick-start setting when I get back home this evening.
