You CAN use AES & ADAT 1&2 simultaneously.

You CANNOT use AES & Optical SPDIF (which takes over ADAT 2 ports) simultaneously.

You CAN use ADAT 1 & Optical SPDIF (ADAT 2 simultaneously)

Apparently when switching to Optical SPDIF mode, it's using the same internal component that drives the AES which makes this a hardware limitation that unfortunately won't be fixed in a firmware update.
