After the 2.0.0 update all the posters have lesser quality in grid view.
When I enter a movie, it shows it in great quality, but when browsing it shows them with some sort of "compressed" quality that does not look good. 
 
Don't know why this i happening. It only does this on my HTPC connected to my 4K tv.

Nope, still the same. Version 2.1.6

Everything is crisp (icons etc) but posters are low pq.

I understand that the zoom will have some blur, but if I look at the picture at full size you will see that all the posters have low quality (when selected or not). It was not like this before. 

 

It does not look good when browsing, and some are worse than others. Is there a reason for the "compressed" quality?

Okay, will try to reinstall Emby Theater later on. Will also check if it has something to do with scaling in Windows. I think I have 150% scaling when at 4K.

Correct! Turns out that my scaling was on 300% when in 4K mode.
Tried 150% and 100%, both worked perfectly, but now I can't use my HTPC to anything else than EMBY because it is impossible to see anything ! 
 
There have to be a way to fix this, because it worked before 2.x.x :)
 
The app itself looks beautiful and crisp in 4k, and scaling does not impac the UI, only the posters.

When you scale the UI it gets blown up, so it's not really 4k anymore, it's more like 1440p or 1080p being upscaled. So the app is going to use poster sizes based on those smaller resolutions, then the OS will blow everything up.
