Bluetooth problems, 3D, problems, netflix sound problems, netflix starting problems, wifi/ethernet problems.

I need to restart my TV to fix these bugs, but it doesn't completely fix them.
Mine worked great, ES8000 65". Make sure your firmware is the latest on the tv. Pins on the E-Kit are delicate be careful, update 2 latest firmware after.
I'm buying the SEK2000 and installing this week. Understand I need to remove the 1000 upgrade FW on tv then install the 2000 can anyone confirm. Any gotchas on the 1000 removal I need to know about?

Time Limit on Evolution Upgrades

I own a 2012 UN65ES8000F and decided to wait until the next upgrade to finally purchase the evolution kit. I just purchased the SEK3500U One Connect Evolution Kit. It is supposed to arrive on Thursday, so I called Samsung with a question only to find out it was not compatible with my TV. I did not understand as I thought they were all backward compatible (outside certain functionality not working e.g. if you don't have a 4k tv, etc). They told me the upgrades only were guaranteed for 1 year after the model year. That there was not going to be another upgrade of the evolution kit that would work on my TV past the SEK-2000

Does anybody know this if this really true? Evolution kits are only valid for 1-2 years past your model year and then your TV evolution experience is expired?

There is reportedly also a SEK-3000 Evo Kit soon to be released. And supposedly the Evo Kits were to be designed to upgrade a TV for several years to come, not just one year. Unless that has changed, perhaps due to the new Tizen system. Still awaiting word on the SEK-3000 and what models it will be compatible with, including the F8500 plasma.

This was my understanding. Thank you for the insight. I will hold off to see what this will offer.
