First, what application are you using on your iPod Touch? I know for example TuneShell automatically downsamples to 16/44.1 regardless of the original file. When I first received my Mojo I had the same problem so I moved all my high resolution files to Onkyo HF Player (ultimately I moved my entire library to Onkyo). One thing to note, if you are using Onkyo, turn off the upsampling option in settings or all files will be output upsampled to 24/192. As for the cable sometimes not working, try doing the following steps: 1. Turn off iPod Touch 2. Turn on iPod Touch 3. Log in 4. Turn on Onkyo 5. Turn on Mojo 6. Connect interconnect to the Mojo 7. Connect interconnect to iPod Touch This should connect your iPod Touch to the Mojo.
