Mine does pioneer elite 94txh, but even tho it will bitsream. The player can't sent it out 7.1 it reverts to 5.1. This stinks, and LG will not fix there problems. No more LG for me unless I see that they fix these issues, and lets not forget DD+ on hd dvd's the ever so popular helicopter sound. In order to play the feature one must set the player to pcm, and I've noticed you do loose some volume.
