    Not much discussion here on the new Pioneer 920H. Is that because it's not selling because of it's high price, or is it so good that there is nothing to criticise ? What's the HDMI picture like, anyone, and are the editing features better than previous Pioneers ?

    I think you will find that the 920 has both a two way i link socket and an HDMI connection. The in/out i link DV socket is on the front panel, the HDMI is on the rear.

    JH4,

    I think the iLink connector on the front if for video only, not for outputting multi-channel digital audio to an amp as Steve K was wondering.

    True, iLink won't output multi channel audio, but it will output normal digital stereo as well as the video, as per the original DV signal from a camcorder, for example. It's a very useful facility when you can transfer DV in and out.

    so do you still need a separate DVD player with i link if you want multi- channel audio and not the spaggettie.
    Just cant understand y they didn't add the i-link for multi channel audio :confused:

    No Steve. Just take the DVD players' optical or coax output and connect either to your Amp. The Amp will then decode the multi channel audio.
