OFFICIAL Samsung Smart TV "Evolution Kit" Thread - Page 44

post #1291 of 1474
I have a question.....should I update my TV to 1054, and then reinstall the evo kit?
post #1292 of 1474
I dont see any reason to do that. The EK FW overrides the native FW, it just needs to know that the EK exists.

Thanks.

Hi All,

 

Would an Evolution Kit potentially reduce input lag?

post #1302 of 1474

yup

If this is correct that is great to hear. The F8500 input lag is meant to be OK in PC mode but if future Evo kits have the potential to reduce input lag further then I can buy it with some confidence that things will hopefully improve.

 

It makes sense that the Evo kit could reduce input lag, as it is the processor and inputs of the panel, I hope this is correct.

post #1304 of 1474

co-processor and no inputs.. the lag is noticably lower with evo kit on a es8000 .. for the f8500 i doubt it as it has very low lag as it is.

Should I considering getting this evolution kit for my new Samsung F7100? Quad core is what I am interested in upgrading from dual core processor.

Thanks

I installed the SEK-1000 onto my UN60ES800 yesterday afternoon.  I did encounter some problems in it's operation that most likely are bugs. The SEK upgraded to v.1010.3.

 

Problems -

1. Navigating in the Apps, when trying to connect to Netflix, the entire HDTV locked-up.  The video was frozen, there was no execution of any remote control commands, I couldn't power off the set.  I had to unplug the power cord then reconnected after the internal click.  I have not traced my steps that caused this but will later to see if the problem continues.

 

2. When trying to edit Channel and Favorites in "Broadcasting," it is next to impossible to make modifications such as deleting channels or adding favorites.  What happens is; when I select radio buttons then move down to the next channel, instead of being able to continue the process, it tunes to the channel highlighted before I have the opportunity to select any more radio buttons.  To be more specific, for example I have digital channel 7-1, 7-2, 7-3 I can select them but when I move to channel 9-1, it tunes to 9-1!  I have not found any workaround for this problem.

 

So far my general impression of the SEK is very good.

 

I am amazed at how easily the process of setup and configuration was.

The first thing I noticed was that the blacks are very black and all else is vibrant.   I found Dynamic Contrast was set to, "High," I had to tone it down so I can again see the lapels on black suits.

 

The addition of the Sound Customizer is an asset.  Now I can hear conversations and other sounds that were previously lower in volume than other background sounds.

If you have a calibrated E8000 screen, after installing the EVO kit, do you need to re-calibrate? Does the TV revert back to default settings or are the previous settings maintained?
post #1308 of 1474

previous are maintained but the're new options for the screeen so its better to recalibrate

You'll have to wait for the 2014 evolution kits. The current generation only work on certain 2012 model year tvs and your tv is a 2013 model year tv.

Thanks for the tip. I hadn't realized that the evolution kit added a sound customizer to the menu. I tried it and so far I like it. I don't run my sound through a home theater and can hear conversations at a normal listening level on some shows that I used to have to jack up the sound on.

Just another couple of 'Evo Kit' questions, but I don't know if all the answers are available yet;

1. If you have a compatible 2012 TV, and a 2013 evo Kit, does this mean that the 2013 Evo kit will get upgraded to the 2014 Evo firmware when it's available, or would we need to buy a 2014 Evo kit?
2. On the Samsung 2012 E series plasma's, do these get the 'Cinema Black' feature from the 2013 plasma's with the Evo kit installed? I don't see why it wouldn't work in principal.
post #1313 of 1474

1. have to buy a 2014 model kit

2. no idea. does this have a evokit ?

post #1314 of 1474
Anyone know if 1007 is latest for uk can't see any later than that ?
post #1315 of 1474
i have the Australian model UA60ES8000 with the evolution kit installed. Had wired internet connected working good, on turning on the tv heard a loud bag & what sounded like a spark/static noise.
I noticed my channels were not updating in the tv channel guide in the smart hub . I have no internet either wired or wireless. uninstalled evolution kit & same results.
cannot connect to my router. all other devices are working fine even my samsung smart F8900 blu-ray player/recorder.
when trying to setup as wireless the menu page keeps on closing. Is there a network card in the evolution kit as well as in the main tv. Did a reset but it doesn't reset the network settings.

It shouldn't be long until the new Smart Kit is announced. The details for this kit were released right around Jan 3rd, so hopefully here in about a week or so we'll have some news and know what to expect. Here's a bit of info from avforums member TonyaNorway (thanks):

"For those wondering what the 2014 TV sets & EK units will offer, here's a teaser from a press release:

"Samsung’s 2014 Smart TV models deliver significantly improved voice interaction and motion control features so that our consumers will be able to enjoy our Smart TV more intuitively,” said Kyungshik Lee, Senior Vice President of the Service Strategy Team of Visual Display Business, Samsung Electronics.
“We will continue to develop content that integrates voice and motion recognition for added convenience.”
With the 2014 Smart TV, finding content is easier than ever.
Users can change the channel in one step – by simply saying the channel number.
They can even open a website or app using shortcuts.
For reference, 2013 models require two steps to change TV channels: ‘Channel Change’ and ‘Channel Number’
The voice search feature is also more convenient to use, letting users find all content results in one place.

Further, when a consumer uses voice interaction to search for daily living information such as weather, stocks and sports while watching TV, a pop-up window appears on the bottom of the page with search results.
Consumers can move to the app and see the details by clicking the pop-up.
Along with voice interaction, the motion control has been improved by adding the ‘finger gesture’ feature of the 2014 Smart TVs – a significant improvement to motion control.
Thanks to ‘finger gesture,’ users can change the TV channel, adjust the volume, find and select what they want to watch just by using their fingers.

They can also go back to the previous screen and stop the video by motioning their finger counterclockwise – a more intuitive way to control the TV."

Will this reduce the input lag on the ES7000? to a point where i will be able to play without GAME MODE ON? cause lets be real... it looks like ass with game mode on...
post #1318 of 1474
I suspect you are right on as to the new Evolution kit. Since I don't use gesture or voice control I don't see any compelling reason to get a new evo kit as the one I have is working fine, but YMMV:)
post #1319 of 1474
Noticed a new FW update 1011 today, after I got fed up with the TV randomly firing up youtube. Didn't fix the problem.
post #1320 of 1474
Yeah I got 1011 today as well (Carolinas).
