One of the few things that drove me insane with my switch to MP2 was the different picture and text quality (even from skin) for fanart and thumbs on my "living room" system compared to my Desktop PC.
The images were fuzzy, sometimes pixelated or even blurred compared to the crispier versions on my desktop pc.

I realized the only difference between the two system (hardware aside) was the DPI scaling, set to 150% on my plasma compared to my desktop. I forced the application to override high DPI scaling on my living room and now picture and text quality is so much better. This did NOT affect video quality, only interface.

Can anyone else confirm my findings? I think it should be suggested on the wiki. Starting from Windows 10 Creators Update, it's possible to override DPI scaling by application by going to Shortcut properties -> compatibility and check "Override high DPI scaling behavior. Scaling performed by Application"
