1. Should I buy the evolution kit or should I wait a little longer for a newer one to become available?
2. I have a Galaxy S5 and have UHD videos. I have tried everything to get my TV to play those videos. I keep getting the error that my 4k "TV does not support 3840x2160 Screen Resolution". I have tried to stream through allshare, play direct from my pc via hdmi, play direct from usb, convert using DivX to HEVC 4k and then repeated the above steps. Nothing will allow my videos to be played.
Is the only way to get the videos to be played is to buy the evolution kit? What can my TV do in regards to 4k without the evolution kit?
You will need the 2014 UHD Evolution kit to play any HEVC encoded 4k files. I would buy one now, unless you want to wait until Summer of next year for the 2015 kit (I am guessing on the timeline based on this year's release).
