    As per the title, can the DVD Audio/SACD be passed through the HDMI connector on the Pioneer 868? How about DD/DTS?

    Don't have one so don't know. What I can say is that it won't do SACD as HDMI is not licenced to carry SACD.

    I have a Pioneer 868 connected via HDMI to my Toshiba LCD TV and audio is enabled but I think it is only for the front L/R channels.

    Nemo, could that be the TV that is limiting it to 2 channels?

    Does the Pioneer i-link carry SACD audio?

    From the manual ...

    I've no idea what that means but that's what it says. :)

    Also, as vonhosen said, it won't carry SACD or CPPM-protected DVD-A.

    No, I remember reading somewhere that the version of HDMI on the pioneer is unable to carry multi-channel audio.

    I Believe it does.
