Evolution Kit Limitations

Last Update date : Oct 11. 2021

The Samsung Evolution Kit brings you a fresh look and some extra features to your older Samsung TV, but it does have its limitations also.

Below is a list of what these limitations are.

  • The Samsung TV panel and design do not change when you connect the Evolution Kit.
  • The actual performance of your TV may vary depending on the model specifications and hardware performance.
  • Some app and functions that were available on your Samsung TV may not be supported when you install the Evolution Kit.
  • The Evolution Kit picture quality output is limited to the optimal resolution of the Samsung TV it is connected to.
  • If the power cable of the Samsung TV connected to the Evolution Kit has been disconnected, please ensure that the Evolution Kit power cable is disconnected also.
  • It is recommended that you change the connections of all external devices from your Samsung TV (such as Blu-ray player, soundbar, or game console) to the Evolution Kit. If an external device is connected to your Samsung TV, and you turn off and then turn on your TV while the Evolution Kit is operating, the TV outputs the picture and sound from the Evolution Kit, not from that device.
  • To use an external device, with the remote control change the TVs source to the one it is using.
  • If you connect a PC to the Evolution Kit, adjust the PC’s resolution by selecting a resolution from the resolutions supported by your Samsung TV.
  • To optimise the picture quality when a PC is connected, set Device Icon to PC in >  Source on the Evolution Kit, and then adjust the picture quality in the Picture menu on your TV using the remote control.
  • To optimise the picture quality, adjust the Picture menu on the TV using the remote control.
  • To use the functions of the Evolution Kit, use the Samsung Smart Remote supplied with the Evolution Kit.
  • The HDMI-CEC function is not supported when an AV receiver is connected. To adjust the AV receiver, use it’s remote control.

Note: If you are trying to troubleshoot the installation of your Evolution Kit, go to either How do I install the Evolution Kit on my Smart TV or Installing the SEK-4500 Evolution Kit, depending on which style of Evolution Kit you have.
