I realize that there are some tradeoffs in using a tv in place of a monitor.

My TV is set for 1360 x 768. The picture quality for a 60 fps 4K ultra hd movie is great.

But the resolution of the panel icons and background are very poor.

Can I improve that?

It helped to increase the size of the pixels to 32 under General and change style to 21.0
Transparent -----Opaque under background.
