Aspect Ratio on LG OLED C8

I just purchased a 65C8PUA to replace my Panasonic 65VT30 Plasma.
Overall I am very happy with it. I was worried for a bit that it was broken because it turned on Ultra Deep Color mode which worked fine for the first day and then started glitching. After disabling this everything is fine again.
The one question I have is regarding aspect ratio.
I have an nVidia Shield connected to a Yamaha RX-A1080 receiver and then to the TV. On the receivers information screen it shows it is both receiving and outputting a 4K 60Hz signal. On the Shield is says it is outputting a 4k 59.940Hz signal which is "Recommended." Adjust for Overscan is not enabled.
On the TV I have black bars on both the sides and the top/bottom. It's unrelated to content as this is how it displays everything including the Shield's menu screen.
I can fill the entire screen by changing the Aspect Ratio setting to "All-Direction Zoom" and then reducing the diagonal (both direction) zoom by 10 clicks.
But I shouldn't need to do this right? Am I lowering the picture quality by adding artificial zoom? Is there a way to see what the TV thinks it source signal aspect ratio is?
Does anyone have any other suggestions to get this working with "Original" aspect ratio?
One note: "Just Scan" setting is currently off. If I turn this on in Original Aspect Ratio setting the bars get bigger. If I turn it on in the All Direction Zoom mode it makes the bars on the side bigger.
Thanks for any tips!
Obviously something is misconfigured on either your receiver or shield . Check the input resolution on the tv by clicking in the upper Left corner of the tv screen with your lg remote , click on the input label what is the resolution and aspect ratio displayed there?
Connect the shield directly to the tv does the problem still exist ? If so it’s the shield . Your aspect setting on the tv should be aspect ratio : 16:9 just scan should be set to on.
