PMW-EX1, EX1r, and EX3 firmware upgrades

(Edit: corrected title)

The latest firmware for these cameras is available, but not directly from the website. I finally decided to sit and redial many times to get through to the Sony support number ( 8008836817) listed on the site:
Sony | Micro Site XDCAM

It seems that they will only give you access to the firmware ftp site if you have firmware later than a certain version, especially for the EX3. I now have the firmware and the latest revision is actually 1.17 for the EX3.

Version History:

Major functions updated with V1.17
Timecode
Ensure timecode continuity when the HDCA-702 is connected
to this unit and the timecode run mode is set to Rec Run in 720P
mode.
Media
Enable this unit to format an SxS memory card having all data
deleted by “Disk Utility” function of Macintosh.

Major functions updated with V1.16
RCP-1000 series
Support the remote control panels RCP-1000/1001/1500/1501/
1530.
RM-B150
Allow the lens diaphragm to be closed from the RM-B150
Remote Control Unit.
Media
Improve the reliability of error processing for errors that occur
during recording to SxS memory cards.

Major functions updated with V1.15
Usable media
Support “New SxS-1 (SBS-32G1A/64G1A)” with improved data
read speed.

Major functions updated with V1.10
Usable media
• SxS-1-series memory card added

I can confirm that the update worked correctly for my EX3. I cannot confirm the new/better functionality.
