Recommended LG UR8000 settings for PS5, Xbox Series X and S

If you recently got the LG UR8000 Series LED 4K UHD Smart webOS 23 with ThinQ AI TV, then you can check out this guide to see how you can properly set it up in order to get the most out of playing videogames on your PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and/or Xbox Series S.

Supported PS5 Features

With the UR8000, you can play PlayStation 5 games at up to 120 frames per second with Variable Refresh Rate support if you have the 86-inch variant. For the smaller sizes, you are limited to a maximum of 60 fps with no VRR.

All screen sizes of this television support HDR10 and Auto Low Latency Mode when it comes to the PS5.

Supported Xbox Series X and Xbox Series S Features

With the Series X and Series S, the 120 Hz refresh rate and VRR are both limited to the 86-inch screen size. For the smaller sizes, the frame rate tops out at 60 fps with no Variable Refresh Rate.

The TV also supports HDR10 and ALLM when connected to these Xbox consoles. This screen can’t play any Dolby Vision content, however.

How to optimize the UR8000 for gaming

For the best LG UR8000 settings when it comes to playing games on the PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and/or Xbox Series S, we suggest that you take the following steps:

1. Connect your console to the HDMI port of the UR8000 if you haven’t done so already.

For best compatibility, use the HDMI 2.1 cable that came with your PlayStation 5 and Xbox Series X. If you have a Series S, then you can use the included HDMI 2.0 cable or get your own HDMI 2.1 cable.

For the 86-inch screen size, make sure you connect the console to a HDMI 2.1 port.

On the 43-inch, 50-inch, 55-inch, 65-inch, 70-inch and 75-inch versions, all three of the HDMI ports are 2.0; therefore, you can use any of the available ports.

2. Use the remote of your LG television set to open the Settings menu. From there, head over to the Game section, where you can then enable the Game Optimizer.

By doing so, the TV will lower the input lag in addition to turning on Dynamic Auto Sync and HDMI Deep Color. Furthermore, 120 frames per second and Variable Refresh Rate should automatically be enabled if you have the 86-inch version of the series.

3. From the same Game section, make sure that ALLM is enabled if it hasn’t been turned on already. This will allow the TV to automatically switch over to Game Optimizer whenever it detects that you are connected to a gaming console.

4. There are other settings in the Game menu such as Game Genre, Reduce Blue Light and Dark Room Mode. We recommend that you leave these alone for now. If a game looks off, then you can try playing with these options later on.

5. You should be done setting up your UR8000 from gaming. However, there is still more work to do on the console side.

For the PS5, head over to Settings > Screen and Video > Video Output. In that menu, set Resolution to 2160p, HDR to On When Supported as well as VRR, 120 Hz (if applicable), ALLM, 4K Transfer Rate, Deep Color Output and RGB Range to Automatic.

Afterwards, select Adjust HDR and then follow the on-screen instructions over the next three screens to calibrate the HDR brightness output for your LG UR8000.

For both the Xbox Series X or Series S, go to Settings > General > TV & display options > Video modes. In that screen, select Allow Auto-Low Latency Mode, Allow Variable Refresh Rate (if applicable), Allow 4K and Allow HDR10.

Return to the Settings > General > TV & display options screen and then make sure that Resolution is set to 4K UHD and, if applicable, Refresh Rate is set to 120 Hz.

On the same screen, select Calibrate for HDR Gaming and then follow the steps that appear over the next three screens to configure the HDR brightness output of the console to match the capabilities of the UR8000.

Your TV and console should now be set up to get the most of PlayStation 5, Xbox Series X and/or Xbox Series S games.
