FS200 PRO - Issues

Hello,
is there anyone, out there, using FS200 PRO with a JVC HD201 (or 200). I'm in a PAL land (Italy) and it seems not work. I know, yes, JVC HD201 it's not on the compatibility chart for the FS200 on Focus Enhancements website, but, as long as you have a firewire (1394) out it should work...

But FS-H200 PRO doesn't work !
just unpacked and (as suggested in Focus Enhancements website) upgraded to latest firmware.

The problems are: It remains stuck in rec when in synchro mode and doesn't stop, neither I can turn off device.

I made a reset (several times) but no results at all. I tried every which way I could to make it work properly, but nothing happened.
I tried both with DV and HDV mode, NORMAL, EXTERNAL, SYNCHRO, even all flavours of files (RAW, DV MXF AVi etc.).
It seems to work in NORMAL mode (pressing rec button into device), but it works for just one clip, in the display I can see TC running and a strange "FCP example" label message, then sometimes I'm able to press STOP, sometimes I'm not, and there are times when TC run until it displays TC 00:00:07:14 then stop and all the keys become inoperative, so I've to shut down camera and press & hold shut-off key for at least ten seconds to turn it off.

I connected also my SONY small miniDV camera DCR PC9E, but nothing happened (just able to record in normal mode from the fs200, but the unit won't stop neither turn off).

I would like to test it with a previous version of firmware, but I wasn't able to find earlier version in Focus Enhancements website.

I hope that could be an answer to this situation...

Thanks to All

It's happened to me occasionally with my HD-110 NTSC.
Press the center wheel when it's stuck in Record. I can't remember
if I pressed the center of the wheel or the right side (as if I was
trying to scroll through the functions), but one of those worked for me.

Ed,
uhmmm... sometimes this turnaround works, sometimes not and I have to disconnect the battery pack.
Anyway, I hope that Focus could solve my big problem.
Thanks,
