The original box will not work... just boots the tv up to the smart tv logo and freezes there. A new box SEK-3500U is not recognized by the tv.
So, I need to find a compatible box to get the tv up and running... then I can upgrade to the SEK-3500U.
I see lots of similar looking boxes online, just not sure without buying one if it will operate the tv.
You will have the same issue with an SEK-2500u as you have with the SEK-3500u. In order to upgrade to a new box you need to be able to do a Backup on the original box through the TVs menu. Samsung may have some way to force it to upgrade but not sure. You would either have to contact them or find someone online selling their original OCB.
