SkyQ UI and EPG blurry in UHD setting

I've recently bought a 65" LG G3 OLED TV and subsequently upgraded my Sky subscription to include Ultra HD. I've then followed Sky's instructions to change my box setup to UHD at 3840 x 2160 in 10-bit colour.

 

Whilst the UHD/HDR content looks incredible, there appears to be an issue with the Sky Q user interface and EPG on this setting, where ieverything looks noticably worse (blurry & unfocussed) than it does at 1080p. Almost as if the UI and EPG is being upscaled in UHD mode.

 

I can't keep switching settings between when I want to use the menus/interface to change it again to watch UHD content.

 

I've seen a few similar posts on various forums and twitter, but never reached a definitive answer. Can anybody shed any light?

Re: SkyQ UI and EPG blurry in UHD setting

I have an LG C3 and also have the same issue, it was the same on my previous LG B2. I feel as though it affects HD content in general too. People have said it's the Sky upscaling being worse than the TV up scaling which you would expect, however I've used Sky set to UHD on plenty of other non LG-OLED UHD TV's which do not suffer from this, almost as if this is an LG OLED specific problem? Still no answers either way and it does my head in as I'm very sensitive to picture quality!

I've just purchased a 65" G3 this week and noticed exactly the same thing with the Sky UI. White text looks blurry, almost like it has a slight haze around the letters.

Nothing else is like this.
