first of all I'd like to wish you all a happy new year and express my appreciation for all the valuable information and advise shared in this forum in general and in this thread in particular.
Like most of you, I was an early adopter and bought my 65LA9700-TA in early 2014 in the UAE, on the premise that it would receive the UHD hardware upgrade some time later. Apparently, the upgrade kit has been made available in a few markets but not in the Middle East and LG Middle East is denying its existence. The model (-TA) I have seems to be identical to the one sold in Australia and as posted 2 years ago by "aussiegreg", the upgrade kit part no. would be AAA75845927.
I would highly appreciate it if anyone could share a picture of the kit before installation and ideally, of the box showing the LG part number. I could use that information to prove to LG ME that the kit does exist and they just need to order it for me. I'm also happy to do the upgrade myself, thanks to the valuable instructions shared in the forum.
Also, I would be interested to know if anyone has successfully managed to install the US upgrade kit (Part. no. AGF77602209) on a non-US LA970x device because a few users in Europe were considering that option but I don't recall reading any updates.
Thank you all in advance for your feedback.
