How do I link the SEK-2500 evolution kit to my Samsung 2013 UHD TV?

Follow the steps below to install your SEK-2500U/XC Evolution Kit on your Samsung 2013 UHD TV. 

 

Before beginning please note that only SEK-2500U/XC Evolution Kits are compatible with UK televisions: if your Evolution Kit has a different model code it is not compatible with your UK Samsung TV. Also note that you must install the Evolution Kit: simply plugging the kit into your TV will not make it work.

Updating your TV's firmware via a USB drive

 

Your TV must be running firmware version 2221.0 or later. Follow the steps below to upgrade your TV's firmware to latest version.

1 Go to http://www.samsung.com/uk/support/ and find your TV's support page. (It's easiest to use the Find my device tool, but using the Search box will also present you with the support page among the search results for your TV's model code).

2 Scroll down and click on the firmware upgrade file (choose the one suited to USB drives if more than one is available) to download it to your PC. Then click here to read the 2013 TV Firmware Upgrade Guide and proceed through the steps therein to upgrade your TV's firmware.
