I just ordered the k8500 but thinking I have an 8 bit panel (tv version us07). I hope I'm not going to be disappointed since I will not benefit same as those who have a 10 bit. Pisses me off since my panel was recently replaced twice.

Side note, my claim is under review for replacement. Wonder what they'll offer since F9000 was flagship model. They can't downgrade me...... I hope.

I got the UN55F9000 a little over two years ago. I recently picked up the new Samsung UBD-K8500 Blu-ray player. As I suspected would be the case, it didn’t take long to figure out I had to upgrade my one connect. I purchased the SEK-2500 and now everything works.

I have to say the UHD Blu-ray hasn’t knocked my socks off like I thought it would. I've watched Kingsmen, Ender's Game, and Martian. I’ll probably continue to futz with the settings – I’ve already made settings changes recommended here. The upgrade of the evolution kit HAS in fact knocked my socks off. Youtube, Vimeo, and my own recordings are incredibly crisp and the colors pop. I really should have made that upgrade before.

Are you sure, that the OCB you connected is SEK-2500. That was 2014 model and SEK 3500 was newest one made available in 2015.

Smile Part Number of SEK 3500 OCB + Model Number and version of your F90000 TV

Dear Forum Members owning samsung f9000 tv,
I need your help urgently and as many of you post reply, my task will become that much easier. I wish to upgrade my one connect box to SEK 3500. I contacted the service center and they have asked me first the exact model number and version number of my Samsung UA55F9000 TV, which I've to find out after reaching the back of my TV. The exact Model number of my TV is UA55F9000ARMXL, Version Number: TS01. Further, they are not able to find compatible part number for the OCB SEK 3500. I could locate two part numbers for the full scale One connect box SEK 3500 (many are mini) at the samsung website:
1. BN 68 - 07069L-01 for UA65JS9500KLXL
2. BN 68 - 07069J-03 for UA65JS9000KLXL.
Now my questions:
1. Did anyone landed with a OCB, which was totally incompatible and has to get that exchanged?
2. If your samsung TV of F9000 model is working fine after upgrade to SEK 3500 OCB, what is your exact model number, version of TV and part number of SEK 3500 OCB?
3. Of the above two, which one has greater chances of being compatible or both will be functional?
The picture of the back is attached for clarity.
I request you to expedite the reply.

I myself have owned a UN55F9000AF for 2 years, mated with Samsung BD-J7500 Player and have gotten great enjoyment from the combo. A while back, upon reading about a lot of horror stories from those getting downloaded upgrades, as well as a few from those upgrading to newer OCBs, I've held off.

Recently I heard that the SEK3500 would not just update my Samy, it would also make it possible to play UHD 4K BD-DVD content with the UBD-K8500 player and show HDR content as well.

What I am hoping is that there will be someone else with the same set as mine who has done the same thing and can verify my hopeful outlook. I'd consider a SEK2500 at minimum so as to be able to display true 4K content and use 4K streaming, but since I got the Samy along with a 5 yr Warranty, I prefer at this stage to make as big a jump as possible.

............just not over a Cliff onto rocks.

What say you.......?

I have the UN55F9000AF(XZA) for a little over three years now and about a month ago upgraded the OCB to the SEK2500. It was a simple process and I've been impressed with the results. I say go for it. I think you will be pleased with the results.

Thanks for the quick reply and info / comment.

The SEK2500 is my fall back unit, if I cannot ascertain the value of the SEK3500 as being worth it on primarily the weight of having the HDR feature added.

Again...thank you!

I have a 65F9000, and a SEK3500. I had the SEK2500 before that. The SEK3500 is worth it on various levels. The HDMI 2.0 support on the SEK2500 is sketchy at best, while the SEK3500 it is very solid. It also adds HDR support, which the UBD-K8500 likes. I watched Kingman in HDR via M-GO, and was very impressed. I only have two movies that are UHD for the K8500 (Ender's Game and Fury Road). I found that Fury Road was too grainy to tell, but Ender's Game with the post production stuff turned off, was quite impressive. (With the post production stuff like digital filtering and other processor picture enhancements made it look 1080p). I also do gaming on my TV, so the added 4:4:4 at 4k:60P makes a difference for me. In the end, it is your choice, but I think it was worth it for me.

As far as I am aware there's only one sek3500? A mini box is a completely separate model and not for the F9000 series I'm sure.

With that bold statement, I've decided to pull the trigger. Now any SEK 3500 OCB, I'm going to lay my hand, I'll pick up. But do be on the side to help me a bit if something is stuck.
Thanks for reply.

F9000 with SEK-3500U UK spec

I have both and can say it made a difference and all is working good. I am not in a position to afford the 4K player at the moment but hopefully it
will drop to a price to reflect the US and euro model over the coming year.

Hello All,

Long time reader here, however this is my second post. I originally posted the query below on the SEK-3500 thread but I didn't have much luck, I wonder if anyone here can help?

I am looking at buying a SEK 3500 for my 65" F9000, which is hooked up to my PC. I have a couple of questions (I had a search through this thread and couldn't find a clear answer, forgive me if it has been stated in the past!):

1) With the SEK 3500 connected to my F9000, will it be possible to achieve a display output of 1080p @ 120 hz? (I will shortly be buying a graphics card with HDMI 2.0 output) If so, what is the lag time like? Good enough for gaming?

2) What is the display lag time like with the above setup, however with the display changed to 4k @ 60 hz?

The reason I am asking is because I am toying with the idea of buying a GTX 1070/1080, along with a SEK 3500. Even this beast of a card might not be able to achieve 4k @ 60 hz in some games, but a nice consolation would be able to run games at 1080p @ 120 hz, do any of you folks have some first hand experience?

Cheers!

1) I can check on the refresh rate for you tonight. I want to say that I tried to get it to 120 before, but i think it made the TV reboot after I applied the settings.

2) I do not use the TV as a gaming monitor. The input lag for me was unbearable. I play games like Gears of War, Rocket League, DOOM, etc. Games that require you to be kind of 'twitchy.' I always found my self over aiming because the input lag threw me off. Ironically, fighting games like Mortal Kombat X were fine because all I had to do was perform the right input on the controller and the moves would work, it just may be critical if you trying to land a precise shot, or evade a projectile. hdtvtest.com said it had an input lag of 69ms, I think that is with the original OCB, however the SEK3500 doesn't seem to be much better.

The new GTX 10's look pretty amazing. I wish I would have held off buying my 970. It will be hard for many cards including the TITAN X to handle 4k at 60hz for many games. I have been able to get Rocket League, Max Payne 3, Mortal Kombat X, and pretty much all of my older games (2013 and older) to run 4k@60 with my 970.

When it comes to input lag, its really a personal preference in my opinion. There are some benchmarks that I can tolerate (20-30ms), but after using a 4ms gaming monitor, I definitely cant go back to 60-70ms.

Good Luck!

Let me know if you would like anymore info and I can try to get it for you.

Thanks for the reply!

I have had my PC hooked up to this TV for over 2 years now, so I am used to the input lag it has when it is in game mode. I play games like GTA V, Fallout 4 and Skyrim, so I think the lag is acceptable enough for these games... I was never any good at the fast twitch games anyway hahaha.

If you could do a quick check with 1080p @ 120hz (I guess there's no way to do 90hz either?) I'd really appreciate it, as I think this could be the pivot point on what I choose to do next. I'm a bit gutted that the new GTX's cant quite manage 4k @ 60hz for newer games, after waiting for a long time to upgrade (I currently have a GTX 670), wishful thinking I guess. I'm now split between buying a used GTX 980 and not upgrading the one connect box (So around €300 total), which would allow me to play almost any game with 1080p @ 60hz, or going all the way with a GTX 10 series and SEK 3500 (€1000+) and being able to play 1080p @ 120hz or 4k @ 60hz (wherever possible). I'll make the decision over the next few days as I currently have a bit of free time on my hands for the next few weeks, so a great opportunity to catch up on my Steam library.

Buying a monitor isn't really an option as I have nowhere to put it, so I guess I'm trying to make the most out of the TV!

I'll make the decision over the next few days as I currently have a bit of free time on my hands for the next few weeks, so a great opportunity to catch up on my Steam library.

Buying a monitor isn't really an option as I have nowhere to put it, so I guess I'm trying to make the most out of the TV!
Hey I finally had a chance to test this the other night, here is what I found out.

I was able to create a custom resolution within the NVIDIA control panel and changed the refresh rate to 120. The setting was applied. However, the TV did not indicate the source was at 120P according to the source info. I was also not able to see the Hz adjustment on any of my games. I turned on Vsync (which should match the FR to the maximum indicated by the display) and the most it would reach was 60 on all of the games I tried.

Someone else might be able to check it for you, but I couldnt get 120hz.

Thanks for trying it out, what a legend!

Seems like it is not possible then, nevermind. Incidentally, I also emailed Samsung about this and got a reply this morning, please see below


************************************************** ************************

You had inquiries on the SEK-3500 connected to your UE65F9000.
You had the following question:

QUESTION:
I would like to purchase a 'SEK-3500U UHD Evolution Kit'
for my UE65F9000 TV, with the intent of connecting my PC to it to play
games. The PC will have a HDMI 2.0 output to the TV, so my questions are
as follows:
1) With the SEK-3500U connected to my UE65F9000, will it be
possible to achieve a display output of 1080p @ 120 hz? If so, will it
be possible to have the TV set to 'Game Mode' in order to reduce the lag
time?
2) With the SEK-3500U connected to my UE65F9000, will it be
possible to achieve a display output of 2160p @ 60 hz with a colour
output of 4:4:4 chroma?


REPLY FROM SAMSUNG:
It is possible to achieve a display output of 1080p at 120hz, but this is not possible with a HDMI connection. A DVI cable is the only way to reach the display output you prefer.
60hz on 2160p is possible, but without chroma subsampling of 4:4:4, caused by the the Y'CbCr components. All three of them have an equal sample rate. The influence of the Game Mode reduces the
input lag, although this differs for each connected device.

Should you have any further questions, do not hesitate to contact us. Contact us via phone, e-mail, Live Chat or through Facebook and Twitter.


************************************************** ************************

I got a little bit confused when I read this, as I didn't think the TV had a DVI input port. Turns out that HDMI port 2 is labelled as a HDMI/DVI port, but I'm not sure how this is any different from the other HDMI ports. So anyway I had a look around online for a DVI-D Dual Link to HDMI converter, but it turns out that only 19 of the 24 pins on the DVI-D Dual Link connect to the 19 pins on the HDMI adaptor, effectively rendering it a DVI-D Single Link. As far as I am aware, you need the DVI-D Dual Link to achieve an output of 1080p @ 120hz. This means that it isn't possible to get a proper DVI-D Dual Link connection into the back of the One Connect Box.

In conclusion, I'm not sure how the Samsung expert can say something like he did, unless I have missed something?

Finally, I found an old DVI-D Single Link to HDMI converter in the drawer and connected from the DVI output of my GTX 670 to the HDMI/DVI port 2 in the One Connect Box, in the feeble hope of managing 1080p @ 120hz... unsurprisingly it wasn't able to go beyond 60hz.

You need the original OCB and make a backup with it. Then you can connect the evolution kit.
Alternatively you could do that on another TV and set up your evolution kit this way and then connect it to your TV.

Now all of a sudden it is taking multiple power cycles to actually start. Every time the cycle starts it shows the "Smart TV" wording and icons and then goes black. Some times it takes 5 minutes and some times it takes over an hour. The red indicator also blinks 4 times as well. I have checked all cable connections and power supplies. I have even removed it from the home theater surge protector and put it straight into the wall with no change. I did move the One Connect box around to ensure it is not over heating or in a cold spot. I am hoping this is not a major issue as the TV is now out of warranty and would be paying out of pocket. Has anyone else encountered this or have anything you can suggest?
I read your post about your TV taking for ever to turn on. I bought the UN65F9000 2 years ago and am having the exact same issue. I had a Samsung authorized service tech come to my place and the diagnosis was that the PCB Jack in the One Connect box is bad. They quoted me $800 to fix it.

I thought I could fix the problem by ordering the Evolution Kit box, but my TV does not recognize it. I was curious as to how you solved your problem.

*Cross posted to SEK 3500 thread as well!*

Hi all!

I recently decided to upgrade my UN55F9000 55" with a US07 panel to the 3500 OCB. The picture looks great. I've still been tweaking picture settings, as I haven't found anyone who has shared settings for that combination yet. Does anyone have any interesting tips or tricks for this particular combination?

I've had one minor issue that I can't seem to figure out yet. I have Netflix 4K running through my Fire TV 4K box and when I watch something in UHD on there, I experience the SOE. I have Auto Motion Plus turned off. Do I need to enable it and try out a custom setting to fix the judder, perhaps?

Been enjoying this forum for advice over the years, so thought that I'd finally make an account.

Thanks in advance for any advice you guys can pass along to me!
