The cable company can open another connection in the house, as if you're getting cable hooked up in another room to another TV. They charge a little for that, but not as much as another internet...

Sorry to beat a dead horse, but no, my position on the ES 8000 forum in 2012 was that I tried various people's settings and still use one I thought looked best. And I'd do that again if I had a 4K...

The age old adage that you can't use other people's settings because everyone's TV is so unique is sort of a traditional forum line, kind of like "it's Bush's fault". Sharing settings doesn't wash on...

That's very different than the first Samsung TV forum I got on when I got mine in 2012. That was all about sharing settings, that's why people went there. Some people used a Disney Wow disc, some...

Yeah, and you don't have to buy the TV there nor do you have to be a Costco member (if you are you get an extra year). Best Buy warrantees are really expensive.

Man, I bet you guys will be glad when you can just freaking buy the disc, pop into player, and rock on Wayne. I don't think I could manage the patience for that download, unlock, load up crap..:eek:

Does my heart good to see this stuff lol :D. I'm SO glad I waited out the UHD thing. My stepson just bought a Samsung 65" something-or-other for $4k in San Diego. Mostly a gamer.

I almost forgot about quadraphonic. I didn't have enough $$ for it but it was cool. I had a very early Surround Sound VCR outfitted with a Yamaha sub ($400, still sounds great) and rear speakers back...

When I first got my TV we rented and bought a lot of 3D, and it looks fabulous on the ES8000. But we just sort of fell off the wagon, haven't watched on in probably a year. For some reason the...

Sound like this SEK 3500 isn't quite ready for prime time, at least for a lot of you. My guess is this won't be totally sorted out until the start rolling out the UHD disc players and discs. Is that...

Nah, it was horrible compared to the Harmony. The little touchpad is kind of a gimmick IMO. And the horrible Blaster thing was needing to reconnect all the time which was a PIA. I got rid of that...

I know I don't have the same TV or the 3500, but I did the original Evokit upgrade and ended up using a Harmony remote for all my devices. My new Evokit remote broke. I love the Harmony. Once you set...

What he means is the SEK3500 turns your 2014 set into a 2015 model JS9500 just as the SEK2500 turned the XXXX model into the HU9000. The very first SEK supposedly turned my 2012 ES8000 into the...

So HDMI 2.0a isn't available yet even on the 2015 flagship. What will HDMI 2.0a enable you to do that you cannot do already? Sorry if I'm a dunce, but I'm just curious.

Right! That's the same on any Samsung Smart TV using ARC (I do). The sound input to the receiver comes from the source (STB, BD player, dish receiver, etc). So the only time ARC delivers any sound to...

I paid for a Quad Core processor too, with the first Evo Kit. And my TV did not look/perform any better after I installed it. I wanted it to. I know, I know I have an old TV unlike you, but at the...

What's the Reader's Digest version of the 8 bit versus 10 bit panel history? Is it important, or is it like the "Quad Core processor" feature which probably doesn't do jack for us? (Now there's...

When I bought the first Evo SEK-1000 in 2013 for my ES8000 it was $400 retail, same as the SEK-3500 costs today. I visited the United Arab Emirates and they charged $500 in June at a mall. I waited...

Don't you have to update the firmware before you can install the OCB? I know mine was different but I distinctly remember being forced to update before the Kit would install. In fact because I had...
