I'm looking at a Pioneer BDP-LX88 to replace about 8 boxes on my floor and was wondering what the Zero signal connection is/does?

according to this article its ground
Quote:
ne connection I’ve not encountered on a Blu-ray player before is a Zero Signal terminal. This phono doesn’t deliver any sound or vision, but connects to the Blu-ray player’s ground, or earth. The idea is to tether it to an unused phono input on your AV receiver (at last, something to do with those composite legacy inputs!) and thereby harmonise the GND reference level between the two devices. Apparently this is beneficial; while I couldn’t actually hear any difference, I took panacean pleasure from the process.

That’s nice. It helps you elimate ground loops. It’s weird that’s now a thing in Home Theater that needs its own (for some reason) RCA jack. For the previous century or so they just used a screw. I can’t imagine it doing anything unless you’re using the XLRs though. You don’t get ground loops from HDMI. :)
