I used Final Cut Pro Studio for many years - and was appalled at the "upgrade" to Final Cut X - I have maintained two old computers using FCP 7 in snow leopard while I was hoping for Apple to finally fix the mess that is X - alas it seems that is never going to happen - so I tried Resolve last year hoping it would give me what I need - but was shocked to discover that I couldn't download my files from P2 cards without a lot of trouble

It is not like P2 cards are obscure technology

If Resolve 14 will import P2 then I will be happy to try it - but I am not wanting to get third party programs to solve what obviously is an intentional weak spot in the program.

The answer is YES.

I can confirm that Resolve 14 can import HPX173mc (similar as HPX170) DVCPRO HD 1080/25P P2 files flawlessly.

The Step is very simple: just drag P2 "content" folder directly into Resolve 14 Media Pool. That's all, Resolve will automaticlly sync videos with audios and they became some "single" clips (any clip including a video track with 4 audio tracks). The clips retain the origin TC. Then you can edit it like any ProRes or DNxHD .mov clips. Very nice P2 workflow IMO.
