And I believe that it disables the spdif input too with the Busman mod.

That must be why I can't link my 2 DR-680's with my V3 & Ua5!

and there were some switchable digimods/ but i don't remember a switchable digimod that was also an oade or busman mod ect.. I may be wrong on that one though...

I have a one with the Busman UA5 bm2p+ with the switchable digimod.  The orginal owner did the switable digimod then sent it to busman for the bm2p+ mod.  I may be in the market to sell it if anyone is interested.

If you're trying to use the SPDIF in on the UA-5 then ,yes, I believe it's your problem.  It's been awhile since I sold my Busman UA-5 but I do remember tearing my hair out at a show trying to use the SPDIF in on the pre.  Ted, why not use the SPDIF & AES outs one to each deck.  You'll lose two channels but would be perfectly clocked.  You'll need ot "get a cable meade" to adapt the XLR to RCA for the input to the 680, but the deck will take either input.  Hope that helps, Kirk

OFF TOPIC ALERT

Yeah, someone reported on gearslutz that they Cascaded  AND word clock synced two 680's together through the cascade feature but lost the digi in (7/8) on the slave.
http://www.gearslutz.com/board/remote-possibilities-acoustic-music-location-recording/661582-linked-tascam-dr-680s-theory-vs-practice.html

DR680 #1 Digi in from External Digital Preamp
DR680 #1 Digi Out to DR680 #2's Digi Input
DR680 #1 Set to Cascade master
DR680 #1 7/8 set to DIN (Not Mix)

DR680 #2 Digi in from DR680 #1's Digi Output
DR680 #2 Set To Cascade Slave
DR680 #2 7/8 Set to DIN (Essentially word clocking DR680 #1)

Well, I would NOT use the cascade function.  From what I understand that is how to sync two decks without any external preamps in place.  What I am suggesting is to run your 680's as 7&8 digi in.   And, I'd have to say, I'm not sure why they would try to run wordclock into a SPDIF/AES input. 

V3(#1) > SPDIF out to DECK #1
V3(#1) > AES out to Deck #2
