Thanks in advance

First step is to make sure that your firmware is updated to the latest version. If you have the SEK-1000 installed remove it before checking for firmware updates and updating the firmware.
Second unplug the power cord from the wall and leave the TV unplugged for a few minutes. Remove the rubber protective cover on the SEK-2000 and the paper covering the upgrade slot on the back of the TV.
Next to install the upgrade kit, I first put the hooks on one side into the two slots. Then I line up the SEK-2000 with the connection on the TV and firmly push the SEK-2000 into place making sure the connection is secure.
I connect the Ethernet dongle to the side of the SEK-2000 and connect it to my Ethernet jack and then plug the power cord back into the wall receptacle. Turn the TV on and if the SEK-2000 should be recognized by your TV.


Make sure that you have the correct version for your part of the world. A kit from Europe won't work in a set manufactured for North America.

....or the reboots are unrelated to the SEK-2000.

I had a few on my F8500 and I don't even have an evo kit of any kind. (4 in maybe 2 months)

There were some settings I've changed to remedy the problem but its too early to tell.

Giving this a little more thought, this may have started about the time there was a firmware update.

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.

Hi poppagene,
First, thanks for your fast answer.
On the other hand, I did what I told me?
Update the firmware (1056 version) and turned off the TV and shiched off the power TV and then add the SEK-2000 to my TV and then I shich/turn on my TV again and unfortunate, my TV did not detect the EVO Kit.
I am sure myself that the TV/EVO Kit model is the correct because both was bought in USA(UN46ES7500FXZA and SEK-2000/ZA), for it, Do you think that EVO kit is defective?
Thanks again for your help
Best Regards
Alejandro

Probably either the evoluition kit or the TV is defective. If you have an SEK-1000 that works with your TV, then it is fairly clear cut that it's the SEK-2000 that is defective. Otherwise, you might examine the slot on the back of the tv and the connector on the back of the kit. If no damage is visible, then it's probably the SEK-2000. Judging by some of the replies in this thread, the quality control on these was poor and many have reported problems. Even though mine installs just fine, after 8 months of use, it started causing the tv to spontaneously reboot while I'm watching tv. I'm going through what is proving to be a difficult return process to get my unit replaced.

Hi again,
Thanks for your advice. I will look both devices but I think that the EVO KIT is defective because I looked the TV and it seems is fine.
Good luck with your problem and hope you can fix it soon !
Regards
Alejandro

Upon close examination of the Evolution Kit, does it appear they've actually used Gold Contacts, or did they go cheap and now there's an issue of oxidization of the contacts, or possibly dissimiliar metals between the TV contacts and those of the kit, making things worse?

The network cable adapter going into the EK-2000 is absolute garbage, every month I get a 'Network cable has been disconnected' message getting spammed and I need to fiddle around with the damn cable.

I used to get those all the time. I never had to fiddle with the cable, I just checked the network connection through the menu and the connection to the internet was confirmed so no fiddling required. Try that next time before messing with the cable.

When I tried playing with settings, the pop-up message would close the settings menu. So I'd have to rush and try to switch it to wifi before the pop-up came up again. I found that fiddling with the cable was the only fix.
