Maybe that's why the newer models don't have that es8000 BT dongle like thing for glasses any more..............just a thought.
Seems they figured it out & us 2012 owners are left with luck of the draw...........
I am scared using an evo kit will mess something up...........i really wouldn't mind getting the newer evo #2 but not feeling to confident in the way sammy handles problems.

SEK-2000/ZA....Any GOOD ?

Remember. the FINAL 4K Specifications have not been arrived at yet! Why BD Players Manufacturers have been holding off. They don't want to put out a product that will be obsolete the day after tomorrow. Unfortunately, TV Producers aren't of the same mentality.

The 2014 UHD Evolution Kit was designed for the 2013 TVs so uninstall it and go backto the one connect that came with your UN65HU9000FXZA.

Does the SEK-2000 change the behaviour of the digital audio output at all?

The most annoying thing with my ES8000 is that I have to manually enable Dolby/DTS output every time I watch a video (in Samsung Link or other apps) which has it, because the TV always defaults to outputting stereo over SPDIF. So every time I have to do:

Menu -> Sound -> Additional Settings -> SPDIF output -> Audio Format -> then select Dolby Digital or DTS

The best audio mode is:


PCM - Line


PCM is an uncompressed audio signal. The TV sends the original sound of the source to external speakers through SPDIF (optical) in correct format (Dolby Digital, DTS...). are the speakers or home cinema which decode the signal audio in their format original.

Samsung tvs only output 2 channel PCM.

To answer the original question, my SEK-2500U remembers that I selected DD, not sure about the SEK-2000.

Will the Evolution Kit work on a Series 6 Samsung tv model number UA60F6400. It does have provision for the kit at the back.

Not sure if I understand your comment, but my HU8550 outputs DD 5.1 over ARC HDMI when watching movies with the Vudu app.

Sure it does if you select dolby digital in sound menu. But if you select PCM it only outputs stereo.

So I just received my SEK-2000 and was installing it in my UN60ES8000, but I can't get the thing to work. I made sure the updates were applied before installing it, but nothing happens after I turn the tv on, no updates or anything. The current firmware version on my tv is 001054? Any ideas??? I tired taking it out and putting it back in at least 7 times but still nothing. Is there a way to tell if the unit is getting power? I guess I am trying to figure out is the unit bad or is it the tv causing the problem?

Did you plug the SEK in with the Power Cord removed from the wall? If not, hopefully no damage was done. Try again with the Power Disconnected. Then put power plug back in. Still not working - try the Factory Reset in the Service Menu without the SEK.
(Remember, shutting the TV Off, is actually putting it into Standby Mode - in other words, it's still somewhat on.)
