How do I install my Evolution Kit on my ES7000 or ES8000 TV?

If you own an ES7000 or ES8000 TV you can have all the functionality of the F range Smart Hub by installing an Evolution Kit on your TV. Follow the steps below to do so:

1 It is important to make sure that your ES7000 or ES8000 TV has the latest software installed by following the steps laid out here. This will ensure the rest of the installation proceeds without a problem.

2 Turn off your TV by switching it off at the wall socket, removing the mains plug from the wall socket or removing the mains cable from the back of the set. We recommend removing the plug from the wall socket.
3 Insert the Evolution Kit into the rear of the TV, following the directions set out below:

a) Remove the sticky label from the back of the set that has Evolution Kit written on it.

b) Remove the rubber cover from the large plug connector on the Evolution kit.

c) Line up the Evolution Kit with the two slots as shown in the diagram and insert it.

d) Swing the Evolution Kit round into place as if closing a door. This will line the large connector on the Evolution Kit up with the large socket on the rear of the set.

e) Ensure the Evolution Kit is attached securely by pushing it towards the rear of the TV until you feel a click (you will need to support the TV while you are pushing against it). You can check the Evolution Kit is installed correctly by gently pulling the right hand side: if the kit comes away from the rear of the set then repeat steps a through to c. If installed correctly the kit will not move.

4 Plug the mains power cable back into the socket, plug the mains lead into the TV, switch on the wall socket and then turn on your TV.
5 The TV will detect the Evolution Kit and will start the installation process. The Evolution Kit will write new software to the TV and then the TV will switch itself off and on again automatically. Next you will see the new 2013 Smart TV Welcome video followed by an Evolution Kit installation screen. Press the select button on your remote control (on the standard remote control and the centre of the touchpad on the Smart Touch Control) to activate the Start button on screen. The process will take about one minute to complete.
