Disney pixelated text in menus

My Sony XR-75X90K that had a recent firmware update displays the text in the menus of the Disney app pixelated. I haven't noticed this until recently. The Roku Ultra, at latest firmware, is running through a Sony STR-DH590.

The Roku is set to 4K 60fps (not auto).

How can I get the text to be clear again?

Re: Disney pixelated text in menus

I gave that a try and I still get pixelated text. The video seems to be OK.

I also noticed that the app icons on the home page are a little distorted. See attached for examples.

It's a little hard to see in the pictures, but the bottom of the R in Roku is jagged as well as the D in Disney and the bottom of the X in Xfinity.

I also tried connecting the Ultra directly to the TV and I still get the same results. The Roku menus and the menus in each app are pixelated.

I reset the Roku Ultra to factory defaults and that seems to have solved the problem.

Pretty disappointed in Roku support. Communication just stopped after the first response despite my attempts to continue with solving the problem.
