i have also linked my Encoder Output from spindle servo to c axis and ENC module.
but i am doing the spindle orientation (for the ATC) on the servo drive, this is enabled
by a digital Input on the servo and reported back by a digital Output from the servo.
anything is possible, just try to do it.
if you find some mistakes, in my bad bavarian english,they are yours.

So using the encoder signal twice does actually work?

From the vague replies i get from CSL its not to be done at any cost ;) But i guess maybe that would affect sales of ENC modules ??

I will be trying this, my encoder will also be sharing the ENC channel1 input between main spindle and 4th axis spindle, i won't be doing dual spindle stuff so its either one or the other. I'll do the switching with a 74LS257BN quad channel, dual input switch IC, could have used relays but thats messy i think.

Yes, you can parallel the signal. Works on my setup.

Yes I can confirm it does works very well, for threading at least.

I still can't get spindle orientation to work properly - it does stop at a location, it will creep back to a location if needed, trouble is that the location it chooses is not the same each time?

Yes the encoder is 1:1 with the spindle and threading does work very well.

Do you have an index signal in your spindle encoder?

Yes, it uses the index for threading sync as far as i know.

So threading works, but orienting the spindle doesn't?

Yep thats it.

No error messages, it will creep to a stop each time but that stop is different :)

Which way do you orient the spindle? By setting in the plugin or M20?

Only tried the plugin, didn't know about M20?
