I would, too. I have a McIntosh MCD301 player now, and while I don't have complaints about the sound, it has begun to bother me a bit that there's no dedicated remote; while most functions are...

The 88 has been discontinued, unfortunately. But going to Pioneer's website they still promote the 88, and I can't find the 85 there. Several vendors I checked didn't have any. Only the 80FD shows up...

Update: the 88 is now connected to the 111FD and is set to output 1080p. This was prompted by the Duo losing the cable box after I switched away from it and back. This will be the setup going...

Hello,

Turning off HDCP blanks the screen, unfortunately. The Duo doesn't see the 88 at all. I do have Frame Lock off, though.

The Oppo 83 works fine with the Duo, as does the Pioneer 09 I have. And since the 88 works fine straight into the TV (PRO-111FD), I'm looking at perhaps a handshake issue. But I don't know.
