Has the firmware update been released? This seems like the only affordable TV you can get right now, IPS displays have refresh rates that are to low and LED monitors that do have a high refresh rate do not look as great as IPS. As a gamer who often plays FPS, I am interested in this television because of the refresh rate.
Would you beable to play games at
2560x1600 resolutions or 1920x1200 resolutions and it would still look good? All at a 120hz refresh rate of course.
I just received my Seiki Digital SE39UY04 39-Inch 4K Ultra HD 120Hz LED TV from Amazon and I'm having troubles getting 4k resolution. I'm using the HDMI cable that came with.
I have Windows 8.1.
Graphic Card: NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M
http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gt-650m/specifications (Here it says it supports 4k). Also here: http://www.notebookcheck.net/NVIDIA-GeForce-GT-650M.71887.0.html (under

The guys in this video gets the 4k-resulution directly when they connect the HDMI 4.1 that came in the box. I checked the settings but I can't find anything.
So please help me, and don't say I cant get 4k because of my graphics card et.c. would get very sad because I really want the 4k-resolution. In that case - worst case scenario, how easy is it go get a new graphics card that supports 4k installed in my laptop?
When I check this review and see the http://www.terracode.com/Seiki_SE39UY04_review/images/1080P_120Hz_Setting.jpg (look further up for my own settings) it seems like I can't even access the settings for using the 4k-resolution.
Do I need to download new drivers for my graphic card or something like that?
Please help, I really want this to work!
Thanks for the answers guys, really appreciate you talking the time.
Well, If you looked into my screenshot with the NVIDIA Settings ( http://oi39.tinypic.com/6dsp6f.jpg ) that I posted in my first post.
You can clearly see that I'm not even available to even enter the settings that you'r tealking about. So I think something is deffinetly wrong with my driver software?
I could try using another HDMI-cable, but I'm afraid I only have old HDMI-cables, or does it really make a difference? I have to my PS3, some year old cables.
And the adapter you linked me, I don't even have a DisplayPort on my laptop. It's a Acer Aspire V3-771.
I posted on another swedish tech forum, and it seems the laptop is only managin from the Intel Graphics, and not directly to my NVIDIA graphic card.
So I obviously need a ton of help if I'm ever gonna get this 4k-resolution. Please help!
Thanks for the answers guys, really appreciate you taking the time!
Xevious>>> Please go back to my first post, cuz I don't seem to "You do not currently have permission to publish offsite links or images. Your submission will be sent to our moderator team for approval. Thank you for your patience."
Where my NVIDIA screenshot settings are displayed, you can clearly see that I'm not even available to enter those NVIDIA settings, only the 3D settings for some stupid reason.
It seems that my laptop only "uses" the Intel graphics and not my NVIDIA, and that has to be a huge part of the problme right?
I could try using another HDMI-cable, alltough I'm afraid I dont have any HDMI 1.4 cables, just old ones for PS3/etc. Or does it matter?
And the adapter you linked, I don't have a DisplayPort om my laptop. Acer Aspire V3-771 is the name and model number, barely 8 months old.
How do I know if I have the latest firmware for my SE39UY04? I went to the Seiki site and downloaded the 2 different ones. Both are zip files. I tried to load both by doing the steps they state and no flashing red light. I also tried to unzip each one and try with no luck. After unzipping, the file was a .img not a .bin like all the others. I even tried to rename it to .bin... No Luck either. Could someone help me with this. I checked the TV menu but nothing shows the firmware to know if I need to update it.
@Davteks You want to unzip and leave the .img (it mounts as an .img and flashes...do not rename).
Also, make sure that you are using a freshly formatted fat32 usb stick.
Plug in the the stick and power on the montior.
On the remote: press "menu", then "0 0 0 0". This will bring up the service menu
From there you can navigate and push the firmware update.
