MNT_MODE_IN auto compatible with gimbal protocol v2?


I want to switch (preferably in flight), between mavlink gimbal control and manual gimbal control. I haven’t yet configured the manual control, but for the mavlink control only gimbal protocol v1 seems to work for mavlink control. Gimbal protocol v2 messages are not accepted. However, gimbal protocol v2 messages do work when I set MNT_MODE_IN to gimbal protocol v2.

I currently have in mind to connect sbus2 of Herelink to my cube orange and configure the manual control via the cube.

Is the auto mode compatible with gimbal protocol v2? Does gimbal protocol v1 have disadvantages over v2? Do you maybe have another way in mind to tackle this problem?
