Don't know if someone posted a link to this article yet but here it goes;

http://samsungevolutionkit.com/samsung-introduce-oneconnect-uhd-evolution-kit/

Link States:

Samsung has recently announced its plans for two new Evolution Kits for 2014, and one of them includes a kit for their line of Ultra HD 4K HD TV sets. The new 2014 Evolution Kit is called the OneConnect and adds a few new features to Samsung’s UHD lineup including:

•HDMI 2.0 – This will allow more bandwidth for 60FPS 4K output and multi-screen output.
•Faster Quad-core Processor
•USB 3.0
•MHL 4.0

One limitation of Samsung’s existing UHDTV was the HDMI 1.4 spec, which in their defense, was the highest out at the time. Unfortunately, it only supported around 30FPS of 4K output. With HDMI 2.0, you get around 18GBps of bandwidth, which will allow 60FPS of 4K output. While this won’t make much of a difference for movies, it makes a huge difference for gaming and television broadcasts. Samsung expects the OneConnect UHD Evolution Kit to retail for about $450. Availability is set to be later this year, and if it’s the same as last year, a few more months.

While not being too specific, Samsung also explains that the new Evolution Kit for their UHD TVs will allow you to watch future 4K content, and we’re assuming this means 60FPS broadcasts.

I didn't get an email but just checked my status and it says it shipped yesterday. I actually sent them an email yesterday through the contact page just inquiring if they had any idea as of to when it would ship so not sure if that had anything to do with it or not. Submitted my info for the 4K content on 1-25.

What's the old saying? "If it ain't broke, don't fix it"; or in this case I would say "If it ain't broke don't hurry up with a riskier fix". I had the update pushed to my display at night around a week ago. I've seen no obvious improvement. I presume they are continuing to push it out or have stopped because of problems with the firmware. Since it worked fine with the prior version, and I'm not aware of any significant fixes with the new version; I would be in no hurry. Plus, I personally consider a usb update to be of "greater risk" than the automatic/tested system download process. So my perspective from a risk analysis perspective: The risk is currently greater than the potential gain. But in closing, you are the only one who can balance your expected values for the risk vs. gain.

I agree about that. But I'm still using the 2004 version. . So I was wondering if there is som major fixes.

So what's the content on the HDD like then?

Not aware of any major fixes; but strange you aren't getting the updates. I've had two pushed automatically to me in the last two months. Have you tried screen menu/ support/ software update/update now? Additionally, have you selected automatic updates in the software update section? Finally, the e-manual has a section telling how to go to online support and they will "take control" of your set and do any required updates.

Hmm strange... I tried to update it OTA trough the Samsung interface but it´s only give me a answer that "Your system is already up to date, or there is no current update available for your tv"  

But if a visit Samsung.com so is there a available update ~~2006.0 ~~2014.01.13 launch date.

The Samsung support thingy I didt try, but as your last statement. If there is no wrong with system don't **** it up:D I was only curios if there was some major updates or fixes to the tv. isn't there any, then I don't even going to try push it myself, just like the previous comments. Some are getting some probs whit connections points etc.

Only change I'm aware of is that it gave me a newer version of the Netflix app. But, I personally would not be nervous about online support screwing up the update. Plus, they would definitely know if your set was up to date and/or what should be done.

I'm sure of that samsung tech support are not going to screw up the update. I was referring to myself;) I hqve to wait for the OTA. I check out the box for update when shut off. We have to wait and see.
post #801 of 1269

Does anyone know how to keep the manual update feature permanently selected to 'manual' instead of auto?  I have selected the 'manual' selection twice now and with each update the TV tells me there is a new version and asks if I would like like to update it now or do it at a later time.  I select not now and continue watching TV, after a few days I come back turn the TV back on and it says the  "new version XXXX" has been installed.  I never told it too and now in my settings the auto update option is selected again,  I didn't change it.  I prefer to do manual updates and let them work out the bugs for awhile before I install, thankfully I have not noticed any issues so far and I think there has been slight improvements to the picture quality.  If anyone knows how to keep the TV in manual update mode only it would be appreciated.

post #802 of 1269

Simply disable the update. Anyway you are checking AVS forum and eventually are in touch about the updates and their performances. Once you realise that the update no 2xxx are stable, apply that to your telly. My TV updated itself to ver 2001, till there were no issues with colored letters when the feed is given by a comp. But once it updated itself to 2004, the problem started. I now kept it frozen to update 2004, till I find an update that doesn't break the visuals.

We just got our Samsung UN65F9000 4K HDTV last week so we are still learning how to do everything..I apologize for posting this message elsewhere on the forum and can't delete it. I meant to post it here where people have the 4k and can understand better what I need...We have a Marantz receiver with all the surround speakers and only have the HDMI cable hooked into the box that came with the TV. I have all the app accounts set up and wireless is working. I thought I'd try to watch a movie from Amazon Prime today and for some reason I only get sound from what is on the TV. Is there some setting on the TV I need to change? The sound works perfect for cable movies with Cox. We only have the one hdmi to that TV box. Is there a setting on the Marantz receiver that needs to be changed? The source shouldn't be different..I shouldn't need to change it to DVD like I did before when I wanted to watch Netflix through the Bluetooth on the Blu-ray DVD player do I? My receiver is the Marantz sr5006. Someone did post saying my Marantz needed to be ARC capable and I'm not sure... This TV is suppose to be smart. I shouldn't have to be as smart as it is. It's frustrating.
I hope someone can explain how to get the sound to work. I'd have to assume that I can't use Netflix either without changing some setting or something. It is probably a simple setting for those of you that know what you are doing and I apologize in advance for my ignorance. I hope you can explain it so my husband will understand what needs to be done.
Thanks in advance for your time!

There is one possible way to get audio from your smart tv apps to your Marantz, and one sure way to do it.

If your Marantz is ARC capable (your Marantz owners manual should tell you if it is) and if your HDMI cable is plugged into your HDMI 3 port (it's the only ARC capable port on the F9000) then you should be able to get audio when playing a movie on Amazon Prime, Netflix, etc.

However, the one sure way to do it is to use an optical digital cable from your F9000 one connect box (connect it to the labeled port that is next to the cable that connects the box and the display) to an optical digital input on the Marantz. The cable is also referred to as "toslink" and you can see what one looks like if you "google" "wiki optical digital cable" or "wiki toslink". If you don't already have one, you can purchase one at Radio Shack, Walmart, Best Buy, etc. Then when you have the cable connected, select that input on your Marantz and you should have audio while playing one of the smart hub applications.

Your Marantz owner's manual probably does a much better job than the F9000 user's manual or e-manual for showing how to connect components.

are all settigs correct? If I put everything on max, I get a tan :)

 

Btw do you think it's an upgrade from a f8000 to f9000?

post #807 of 1269
Only had the F9000 for less than a week. I am sure all my settings are not right yet. ( right to me) . I see much more depth in the f9000 picture like mini 3D. I think one of my main problems is with my cable company Cablevision. They are broadcasting in 740 not 1080. The set does a problem in uncovering from 740 and under. Looks great when you feed it with 1080.
My other question is there a true 4K DVD player. Excepts for Sony. What doesn't not work with Sammy I can't find any. Don't know what the stores do ??
post #808 of 1269
I get my digital audio out of the smart hub. The extra box where all the wires go to.

RLB,
I think you have given me enough info for my husband to figure it out. I appreciate your detailed info. You have been very helpful. I appreciate your time. Terri
