I had the 92 for a few days. It would not pass video through HDMI with my Sony BDP-S1 Blu-Ray player (updated firmware 2.1). My HD-DVD A2 and my Apple TV worked Great. I miss this unit. It sounded great but no one from Sony or Pioneer really offered me any help. I purchased a Onkyo 805 as the replacement and it really does not compare.

Just to clarify the Onkyo 805 does not sound as good as the Elite?
I also would like to know if the 94 is worth the extra money over the 92.

Do you actually have a 92? Can you start with performance, setup, etc. I am torn between this and a 94 and would love to read some feedback from 92 owners.

I read an earlier comment about the guy returning the 92 for an Onkyo. Folks, I will tell you, and probably hear about it, that I would never buy an Onkyo receiver. Just remember that for all you get in those models, why is the price so low?? I believe their quality is terrible and have had several friends who have owned past Onkyo's only to get rid of them due to problems. I have never has a problem with my 82, or the 92 and have connected many different players to them. I have connected a Sony BDP S1, just like the earlier poster and it played BD's perfectly. But who knows.
Please let me know what version of Firmware you are running. I would love to get this unit back but can not wait till Sony puts out a firmware to fix the problem. My HD-DVD and Apple TV did play fine through HDMI so I am sure it was not the Pioneer.

The player was connected to my 82 about 6 months ago. The player was a friends, so I do not know what firmware there was. I do know, that I plugged it into the same input I use for my PS3. It was kind of my testing ground. I watched a movie on his S1, then watched a movie on my PS3. Both looked great, and hence I did not need the S1. There should be no difference between the 82 and 92 connections (besides the HDMI 1.2a and 1.3 factor, which means nothing in the overall signal sense) . As the PS3 and same DTV box play the same on the 82 and 92. As a matter of fact, when I connected the PS3 and DTV to the 92, it played beautifully right away. I do not know why your S1 is not playing. It should not be a handshake issue at all, but you never know.

Just a thought and you probably have already done this but did you go into the S1 settings for video and audio to change it to HDMI?
I agree with your opinion on the Pio Elite sounding warmer than the Onkyo receiver.
Good luck on getting your S1 working right.
