Anyone mapped a CDJ-101 with Ableton?

I got myself one of them DJ Tech CDJ-101 mofos thinking I could use it in my Ableton projects to throw a few half-assed scratches here and there. It says it's compatible with Ableton, so I figured it'd be super-peasy, but not so. I tried the MIDI learn function, which can map most of the buttons, but the most important part of the controller, the turntable (I've heard other folks call this a jog wheel) only seems to send one MIDI message regardless which direction you turn it, which ain't much use when you need it to be a forward and rewind or the like. I was thinking of using it to control Turntablist Pro or something similar. Maybe I'm doing something wrong, but hey, I thought I'd put this out there in the hopes that someone else might be able to help me out. Any advice y'all can throw at me would sure be appreciated. 

I should probably add that I'm using Ableton Live 8 with OSX Lion.
