For those of you that just want to see FRCM / Main page / Optionbyte differences across all 3 firmwares:Click here
For those of you that want to figure out your Audio stuff or any other thing of your interest here are screens from EVERYTHING including whats in the link above:SM Screens for 1002.3
(~35MB)SM Screens for 1003.G
(~35MB)SM Screens for 1003.M
(~35MB)NOTE: All pix are not 'web optimized' and are full 8.1mp highest quality - sorry I did this late last night and was up till 2am. If someone wants to 'optimize and shrink image sizes' and reupload then feel free.
FYI - 1002.3 and 1003.M are IDENTICAL for FRCM (Amp) stuff.
I really hope you guys enjoy this as this took a very long time (3hrs).
Let me know your thoughts.
EDIT: Since the filenames of the 'full SM screens' (larger zips) are not very informative...you can easily figure out what screen it is by looking at the text in the upper left portion of the screen. (ex. ADC, WB Movie, EDID, FRCM, etc)
Here are my observations and some general comments on what I discovered while I was taking those shots.
1) 1002.3 -> 1003.G
-They turned off Watchdog
-got rid of a option that allows you to switch between 10bit/12bit processing
-jacked around with FRCM making it stronger.
-added FRCM ADV menu
2) 1003.G -> 1003.M
-the option to switch between 10bit/12bit processing is back
-FRCM is back to pre '1003.G' level aka 'stock'.
-FRCM ADV menu is gone now
There could be other changes like for the 'SOUND' menu in the SM but I didn't pay close attention to that yet - I'll have to go back and look at my pictures.
Thoughts and comments:
Now here is the deal with FRCM (Amp) settings and what I found works best for me and why.
1002.3 and 1003.M are Low: 16 - Med: 13 - High: 10
1003.G was Low: 12 - Med: 3 - High: 0
Now for animated movies and gaming people say they like 'pop' effect from 71f days yada yada... so High to 0 seems appropriate.
For some people they use it on Low cause of their wives/gfs or whatever other reason....so Low to 16 seems ok. I don't recall anyone wanting a lower setting of AMP then the what they had originally.
That brings us to Medium... now to me 16, 13, 10 from 1002.3 and 1003.M seem like the differences would be minimal at best and some of you may be ok with that. For me I set Medium to 8.
Low: 16 (from 1002.3 and 1003.M)
Medium: 8 (my choice)
High: 0 (from 1003.G)
Those are my settings and I think I have logically reasoned to myself why I picked it to be that way. A little bit of all the worlds and even amounts of AMP strength increase.
Let me know what you think. ALSO to respond to all the 'thanks' I'll say: "Your welcome guys!! Enjoy!"
