troubles with EDLs and FrameCycler DDS

According to EDL Support - IRIDAS Online Documentation FrameCycler DDS supports the CMX 3600 format for EDLs. A workflow I am working on is to make an edit in Final Cut Pro (which offers more precision for making frame-accurate edits) and then exporting an EDL file to our server for viewing with FrameCycler DDS in another room or facility.

I am able to open my EDL in FrameCycler, but two things are immediately wrong: the starting frame number in the timeline is 90000 (!!!) and the media does not load. All the media files are indeed on the server and I have made sure to edit the EDL to use absolute paths to the files.

Here's a shortened example of the EDL:

Code:
TITLE: FCP2FC_TEST
FCM: NON-DROP FRAME

001        AX V     C        01:00:00:00 01:01:04:14 01:00:00:00 01:01:04:14  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  /PROD/FOO/FC_TEST/SEQ07_SRC.MOV

002        AX A     C        00:00:00:00 00:02:10:22 01:00:00:00 01:02:10:22  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  /PROD/FOO/FC_TEST/SEQ07_SRC.AIFF

003        AX V     C        00:00:00:01 00:00:20:14 01:01:04:14 01:01:25:02  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  /PROD/FOO/DAYLIES/LAYOUT/SEQ07_12_LAYOUT_V02.MOV

004        AX V     C        01:01:25:02 01:01:27:21 01:01:25:02 01:01:27:21  
* FROM CLIP NAME:  /PROD/FOO/FC_TEST/SEQ07_SRC.MOV
Anyone have any ideas?
