Hmm, it does sound like the vinyl's incompatible, but it shouldn't be since FDP timecode is based on MsPinky...have you got any other control vinyl you can test out? And torq vinyl should work - it's the same as MsPinky timecode . It MIGHT be the case that MsPinky version 4 isn't supported yet...but I can't confirm that. It would make sense since you say that selecting MsPinky v2 in your program doesn't work, implying that version 4 is a different timecode system, which isn't compatible with FDP, but I can't be sure of that .
At the moment, according to xylio, only torq and MsPinky are supported, and since they are the same system, FDP doesn't have the option to select between them. I suggest you email email@example.com and see if they can help. When you get a reply, and if it works, post it here for future reference . Sorry I couldn't really help you!
I don't have any other control vinyl. I am also reluctant to purchase $30 worth of vinyl to trial a program I might not end up buying. That said, I could always use the Torq vinyls as a back up to my ms pinky set up. I know for a fact that Torq and Gen 2 and Gen4 are slightly different (I will have to find the Pinky forum topic where dlpinkstah (the dev of Ms Pinky I believe) confirms this). I have emailed support and will let you know what they say. I believe Torq is version 3.5 or something of that nature again according to a post on the Pinky forums.
