Specifically, I am interested in the third item.  I have successfully 
captured and sent 2 channel audio from both dev 0 and 1, but I (as I am 
VERY new to ALSA and the .asoundrc voodoo) have not been able to use all 8 
channels of ADAT optical io.  The goal of my setup is to capture 8 streams 
into Ardour via jackd from the ADAT in but I have yet to figure out how to 
access all of the interleaved data.  Please excuse me if my difficulty is 
naive but as I said I am new to the finer workings of alsa and am eager to 
get some direction beyond the fragments found in news group archives.
