Default WD-65638 Color Wheel - 6 color wheel or not a wheel, that is the question.

I just bought a "wd-65638" online for $50. I have never had a DLP and feel like i have "missed out" on an exciting era. Anyway. My question about the "wd-65638" is weather or not it has a 6 color color wheel or a 3 color color wheel. The description says it has a "6 color" color engine so does that mean a 6 color color wheel? Checking online i have found a replacement part for the color wheel and its only 3 colors. I don't know if that's because its a replacement part or not. Thank you VM. I will be happy to find out that it is 6 color.

I just need to know if the TV has a 6 color wheel or a 3 color wheel so i can decide weather or not to save the TV or sell it.

Every "Color Wheel" replacement that I can find for this model is 3 colors, but 6 segments (2 red, 2 green, 2 blue)
