I saw that, but it also says;

NOTE: Just because an I/O is listed does NOT mean it is guaranteed to be
supported. Please check the mailing list archives before making purchase
decisions based on requirements for IEC-60958 or ADAT I/O.

Most of what I found in the archives was from before Digigram released
the drivers.

Lucky you! The best I've seen is $369 at www.8thstreet.com which also
happens to be here in Philly.

Ahh, but it's not so simple.  Jack has an alsa driver. My limited
understanding is that the frames/period must be a power of 2 of the
sample rate.  The UA-20 is at 44100 which doesn't work.  I guess I can
asume that the vxpocket at 48000 will be okay.

Thanks for your help,
