Samsung is definitely shady about how they update their television. On my es8000 I had it set to not update automatically and one day I turn it on and it starts updating. I check the settings again afterwards and sure enough autoupdate is still set to off. First thing I did was delete all my network info out of the tv. Some others noticed the autoupdate happening without prompting as well. That type of practice is 'hacking' like since we explicitly set the setting to not do that.
