parallel jobs to one Tape drive with backupexec 2012 R2

This issue has been solved. See solution.

i want to boost the backupspeed to our new tape library with a  LTO-6 Drive (TANDBERG StorageLoader)

therefore backup jobs sould be able to be combined for writing to tape (4 jobs parallel to tape) 

Now, jobs B2T are waiting for the next free slot, because only one job can be stored to the tape at one time.

Our earlier BackupSoftware arcserve could combine several write jobs to tape together (up to 4 or 8) ... 

can BE2012 do this also??

No.  Only one BE job can write to the tape at one time.

Backup Exec doesn't utilize this feature of multiple backups to one tape drive simultaneously (Multiplexing), however Netbackup does so.
