thnx for update. i had that too one time.. u could try and wait till u got everything updated on the sek-2000 and remove both apps then reset the smarthub and turn off and on the tv and re-install both apps after that. sometimes its a network error or app get screwed up due to smarthub update.

today i found myself without wireless connection on the tv and i had to plug in the network cable in the end. sometimes it finds wireless but won't connect and sometimes it will give hardware address of 00:00:00:00:00:00 , it misses 5ghz wifi ap's .. clearly something bugging in the firmware.

Thanks

its not gonna work due to different hardware used . but you could try update tv to latest firmware then attach evokit (tv unplugged from mains if u do this) then in support menu update firmware online. skip the usb question and make sure it's online before turning on tv. case of wireless make sure it connected before. or go usb route, then u need the evokit euro firmware on usb.

Hey I wanted to know if anyone who now has the SEK-2000 has been able to download and use Netflix? I was going to buy one today but I won't if Netflix isn't available. I read here that someone installed it in their TV and then removed it because netflix wasn't available. I would rather wait to purchase mine when Netflix is available for download than have it sitting at home collecting dust and hoping for an update from Samsung to fix the issue.

Is the skype working for you? I was able to download it, but it wouldn't complete an outgoing call (or even the free test call).

For the F9000 the model number for the one connect box is SEK2500UZ/A for Canada the "UZ/A" may be different. Check with Sparco, their phone number is 800-840-8400

For those living in Norway, the ZG model will be available in around 2 weeks time. See for http://www.prisguide.no/produkt/samsung-evolution-kit-sek-2500u-205473 for retailers.

Nice pictures. How about getting a scan of the manual and specs? Everyone here seems to be in such a rush to buy something "sight unseen". With no specs on any of the global Samsung sites, and nothing much listed on the e-retailers sites, I would find it hard to lay the money down not knowing what this new Evo-Kit improves upon.

Thanks for that.

So just an install manual, no real info on what systems and services update, and which ones do not?

That's the biggest problem I see with these Evo kit updates. It's a great idea to keep your purchase at the current technologies but they need to explain what they exactly are offering. Especially with the new HDMI 2.0 specs. There's a lot of smoke and mirrors that some of the mfrs are playing with in regards to HDMI 2.0 and it would be nice to see exactly what your $400 or what ever is really getting.

Now to be fair, for the SEK-1000 there was a lot of information on what was updated, and what would not carry over from the 2013 SH to the 2012+EK. All of this was on the Samsung site, but for the SEK-2000, it seems that have allowed some companies to sell it before the specs were released. I get that some distributors have gotten a special deal to sell before it hits the rest of the stores, but they could of at least still published the info.

But I suppose, why bother... it seems a lot of people are willing to buy sight unseen.



Me, however... I need to know what it will do, before I buy. I wasn't too impressed with what the SEK-1000 would do for me, so I figured I would wait. Looks like I will have to wait a bit longer. It is only a 2012 TV, after all. Hell I may just wait till the 2016 EK gets released.

Sorry to hear this. That sucks! Do you think it's because it needs a firmware update? Keep us posted. what a bummer

There's no way to do a firmware update because the TV screen only shows the image of the cable trying to connect. Nothing on my remote works except on/off. BTW the latest firmware with the original one connect box is 2007.3 and was told by the Samsung "Experts" that that's the latest version.

You need to do the update with the old box plugged in first.
