ps: i ahve a es7500 60in
I'm wondering if that impression about the PQ being different is just because the settings go back to the defaults? I noticed my picture being "different". Not better. I went back in and did some of the very minor tweaks that I had done, and I'm glad i had written everything down before plugging in the EVO. My tweaks were VERY minor tweaks, but just enhough to make the PQ how I like it. I am still amazed at the PQ of this TV.
I did figure out that one of the apps that disappeared was a cheap card game that I had PURCHASED. Only 99 cents, but having to BUY it again, is pretty much B.S.
I have actually put the original, non touch remote away, and I use the new touch one. MUCH better than that silver hunk of crap that came with the TV.
While I think its goofy to TALK to a TV, I tried out the voice command feature, and it does work quite well.
A side note:
I have an ethernet cable that runs to my AVR. It runs under the house and comes up behind my system. I had been been running my 55" ES8000 on my wireless network, but just for fun, I grabbed a cheap Gigabit Ethernet switch, and plugged the SR7007 AND the ES8000 into it.
I get super fast speeds with Comcast Xfinity, and now everything in the Smart Hub runs really fast. It ran good before, but every once in a while, while watching NetFlix, it would stutter or stall for a couple seconds. Now movies load super fast, and run smooth. Obviously not all attributed to the EVO Kit, but in combination with the EVO, I'm running real smooth and fast. The web browser pretty much performs like a REAL web browser. Its now something I can actually use.
