Considering that most of the newer sets are designed to have PCI Slots on their main boards, I would hope that swapping out the FRC board is as easy as installing a Video Card on a PCI-E slot.
Heck, at less than 100.00 (according to a previous post) for the new Trident Chip, I might not mind paying for it, as long as it resolves all issues. By the way, I have not been able to find the newer Trident chips mentioned on the Samsung Parts site, it may just be me, but I've tried searching using all three search fields.
In the event that Samsung does put out a new display with the updated chipset, I really hope Samsung doesn't leave us early adopters $hiet out of luck, as I can't afford to buy a new set every year. I hardly doubt they will put out a new model with just the chipset being the only difference and still use the same panel.
If a hardware FRC Board replacement is all it needs, I'll meet Sammy halfway in terms of cost, as long as it's reasonable. The only reason is because I know this is fairly new tech, one that needs time to mature, and I knew that when I bought that set. BUT, I do expect Samsung to take care of it's customers and provide a reasonable means of support and updates.
