The Sprout should work with ANY general MIDI compatible device.  Your Clavinova or Plaggero should both work just fine.  After looking at the instructions for both digital pianos, it is actually a big pain in the ass to get the MIDI input to respond to the correct channels (its all setup for drum machine input on the Clav and takes many keystrokes to change). 

Please make sure the MIDI cable is going into your Keyboard MIDI INPUT port, if there is a lightshow on the MIDI Sprout then you should have MIDI data pouring out to your keyboard.

No they are not too old, but it looks like they are hard to configure for MIDI input.
