No, 'algorithm' being the system that governs the adjustments the TV makes and when. Basically, the software.
D-Nice has said that there will be no firmware that an end user can deploy themselves. I took that statement to mean that there is a possibility for a tech to come out and deploy an upgrade, or for the display to return to base (if ever a fix was to be offered).
With my limited understanding of the problem, it is still apparent to me that there is no way in hell that Panasonic can roll out a global one-shot-fix firmware that patches every TV. We've all got different models in differing states of decay and there would need to be individual attention given or the results could be quite ugly.
If Panasonic want to issue individual fixes to us 'squeaky wheels' without worrying about the general user-base (who couldn't care less/don't know), then I'm more than happy for that to transpire.
However I'm not holding out much hope on that.
I'm waiting for some talented individual with all the right skillsets and desire, to sit down and basically hack it. If Panasonic won't devote resources to correcting their mess, then perhaps someone else can/will.
Necessity is the mother of invention and I just hope that momma is pregnant.
