Accessing a TK50 or TK70 from RT

      I have had some success in fixing a couple of TK tape drives.

They now load and unload every time you press the button.

SFSG now to talk to them from RT.

Using the diagnostics on the format (RX50) disk the Identify function 
shows the drive and by inference its controller.

However its calls it MUX.  I seem to remember under RT you needed to do 
a SET or ASSIGN to link it to the driver.

Anybody know the correct syntax  so I can init the tape and start to 
read and write files to and from it.
