Boss BR 8 to Digi 001

    Hi folks, I hope I am posting in the right place.
    I am trying to get a boss br 8 to my 001 via light pipe to transfer some trax. I use ADAT Light pipe out to 001 all the time for the extra ins, but I can not seem to bet the little boss unit to send to PT via Light Pipe.
    I am thinking that the boos would jsut go in place of the ADAT in the signal chain.
    Also it seems that the optical out of the BR 8 is just stero L and R out for going to a DAT or mini disc, (from what i understand from the manual).
    Any way I am trying to do some one a favor here. and Failing miserably.
    Any help or input would be great.
    Peace to all

    Most likely the case that the 001 does not allow for input of the two channel optical format. Only the 8 channel format!

    That being said if the Boss has a SPDIF output you would be best to use that instead

    Thank you very much for the speedy reply.
    That clues me in a lot more about Optical outs.
    Thanx again
