Actually it may not be a firmware issue, but rather choice of codecs. The 3.0 firmware update enables a 10-bit 4:2:2 All-I AVC VBR recording at up to 400 Mbps. QuickTime X player won't open these files either. The DP tells me he can't open these in the free version of Resolve, only VLC. So it's probably the 10-bit issue. The "good" EVA1 files I tested were 8-bit using one of the other codec options. So it's still a curiosity that Compressor can't open all of the same pro codecs that FCPX can open.
