The B2 and G2 are both 4K OLED television sets that were released in 2022. These two TVs support all of the advanced display features set of the new PlayStation 5, PlayStation 5 Digital Edition, Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S consoles. These benefits include 120 frames per second, Variable Refresh Rate and Dolby Vision.
To see how you can properly set up your LG B2 or G2 for these gaming systems, you can take a look at this tutorial from Seeking Tech.
1. To start off, make sure you plug the console to your LG OLED.
For the uninformed, only the HDMI 3 and HDMI 4 ports of the B2 support HDMI 2.1. Therefore, you need to plug your PS5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S to those two ports.
All four HDMI ports of the LG G2 are HDMI 2.1; thus, you can connect your console to any of these ports.
2. Once you connected your console, you then need to change the HDMI bandwidth on your television set. In order to do so, you need to take the following steps:
- Open the Home Dashboard menu on your B2 or G2.
- Select the icon that has three vertical dots.
- You then need to select Edit Inputs.
- Next, you need to select the HDMI port that is currently connected to your PS5, Xbox Series X or Xbox Series S.
- Finally, you need to select PC to unlock the full HDMI bandwidth.
3. You should then make sure that the Game Optimizer mode has been turned on. In order to do so, go to Settings > All Settings > Picture > HDR Select Mode > Game Optimizer.

5. You can then adjust the color settings of your B2 or G2 by going to Settings > All Settings > Picture > Advanced Settings > Color.
From there, make sure you that you set Color Depth to 55 for HDR games or 50 for SDR games. For both HDR and SDR set Tint to 0. You should then select White Balance and then make sure that the Color Temperature, Red, Green and Blue settings are all set to 0.

8. You should then disable the Energy Saving Step setting by going to Settings > All Settings > General > OLED Care > Device Self Care > Energy Saving.
