I think the obvious is being overlooked here.
1. In all these videos there's only one thing connected to the TV and that's the single HDMI cable. The TV is getting video somehow in these videos, so where's it coming from? It's coming from the HDMI cable since that's the only thing connected. So, that HDMI cable must be plugged into a blu-ray player or possible a computer which is showing the demo video that they're playing there.
2. Once the Evo Kit is connected, they plug in some cable and explain that it's for internet connection for people that connect over ethernet. Ok, great. What are they connecting that to? They must be connecting it to a router somewhere which is how they're getting internet connection.
There are some major issues here if you're correct in thinking that the lone HDMI cable connected to the TV is going to the Evo Kit box:
1. If the HDMI cable connected to the TV is indeed connected to the Evo Kit box, then where is the video source coming from that they're playing on the TV? It has to come from somewhere and since there is only an HDMI cabled connected to it, it must be coming from there, which means that the HDMI cable is not connected to the Evo Kit.
2. If the Evo Kit box is connected to the HDMI port on the TV, then were is it getting it's internet connection from? There's isn't an ethernet cable connected to the port on the TV, so it's not passing it from there to the Evo Kit box through HDMI. It must be getting it from an ethernet cabled that's connected to a router. This means that it's not connected to the HDMI cable.
To summarize- If the Evo Kit box was indeed connected to the TV through that lone HDMI cable, then there's no possible way that the TV could get any video source or internet. It's simply not possible.
