Fair point. I was more thinking of SmartTV's to be honest, where you might be streaming 4K. As long as the 4K BD player has HEVC support, and the TV has HDMI2.0 (or ideally, HDMI2.2) you should be ok. Difficult taking into consideration devices that could still be over a year away from becoming available.

Fixed

Using the last post from the below link i was able to fix the wifi issue of my UN55ES8000 + SEK-2000.

http :// forums.cnet.com/7723-13973_102-615399/samsung-es8000-wifi-network-problem/

Here is what is mentioned in the post

Problems: Ue65es8000
wifi search network and after that suddenly skip out ....
no connect to wifi
just connect to first wifi that i config at the first time
in secret menu: sometimes i saw wifi MAC and sometime it show fail massage

solution :
put tv in stand by mode
push mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power ( it is secret or service menu )
be careful, don't change others things
go to: Control > sub option and change "wifi region" and chose A
go back
go to: SVC > SVC restart

now your tv will be restart again and ask you to config it

I hope it work for you to
Please report you test here

So I noticed that there was a new software update notification for my SEK-1000. I'm probably not going to update again since I remember hearing somewhere that Samsung was ending support for Dolby Digital/DTS support on certain older models

What is the meaning of life?

I don't really know but I am curious as to why it would make any difference as the F8500 isn't a 4K display.

Samsung 64F8500, Panasonic 65VT50, Oppo 95, Tivo Roamio for OTA, Dish VIP722, Marantz AV8801 preamp, Rotel Amps, Atlantic Tech 8200 speakers, Seaton Submersive HP, Calman 5, Chromapure, Accupel DVG-5000, VideoForge HDMI II, i1Display3pro, i1pro2, eecolor colorbox.

So, have the UE40ES8000 and trying to get the SEK-1000 running on it. Was able to get it almost all the way there but...no wireless anymore. Have been on the phone with Samsung support, just went through a RM session but still no dice. Updated to the new firmware for the TV (2015 version, released today) and followed the samsung rep's instructions to the letter. Was able to see the wireless networks during the setup but not able to connect. Now, after a few tries, they don't even show up.

Have upgraded to latest firmware for the SEK-1000: 1013.0. but still no wireless.

Tried getting into the menu afsalva mentioned above but don't see it, the TV just turns on when I press the '1' in the sequence

push mute > 1 > 8 > 2 > power ( it is secret or service menu )

Any suggestions for what else I can try?

My instructions are for US model TV (UN series). For international TVs (UE series) you need to use Info -> menu -> mute -> power

see the below Youtube video. Check the comments section also

Search for "Samsung led tv factory reset" in youtube. I am not able to paste links here.
