Look at my bootloaders "hi5":

GenoaS with Parma, GenoaS only
Seems, here is Parma chip.
Or maybe not.. IMO that only suggests that both (Genoa-S with Parma / Genoa-S only) hardware configurations are supported by T-GAS* firmware[s]. Doesn't mean there is Parma 3D chip in your particular TV model. I'm not quite sure what Parma 3D chip is exactly (looks like it's involved in 2D -> 3D conversion in hardware; is it doing something else or just that?).
Are the gas6*,gas* and gap* mainboards cross-compatible?
I guess not (at least, not as a general rule).
In comparison, B550 -> B650/B750 mainboard switch was very simple (the same 50/60Hz video format on LVDS bus for all 3 models; virtually identical mainboard PCB layout).
Sadly, that's not the case for D6000 -> D000. I expect many more troubles (for a start: power board connector in D8000 is 28pin vs 20pin in D6XXX - ?).
We don't know:
- what signals we can expect on LVDS bus in D6000 and D7000/D8000.. I guess video format should be 100/120Hz for D6XXX models (they use 100/120Hz panels; FRC & 3D is done by Genoa-S on the mainboard - only one chip on the T-Con, no DRAM). D7000/D8000: they use 200/240Hz panels, and FRC & 3D is done on T-Con. But what exact video format[s] are transmitted on LVDS bus in D7000/D8000? 48/50/60Hz? 96/100/120? No idea..
- will D7000/D8000 T-GAP* firmware operate properly while unable to detect FRC/3D Napoli chip on T-Con?
- is Genoa-P even capable of doing on-board FRC & 3D processing? Not very likely, IMO. If yes: 1) is there support for such unusual combination in T-GAP* firmwares? 2) will 3D be actually any better than Genoa-S FUBAR implementation?
