Your pass will ALSO work on the inbuilt Xbox music player which I prefer 100% more than Zune player. It is more beautiful than Zune.
I now only use Zune to sync my WP7. Everything else including Smartglass happens via my Xbox Music.

I'm not referring to the pass or Zune on my WP7, but my Zune MP3 Player. I sync mine a couple times every day to update the podcasts I listen to (I don't like to use my Lumia 800 for music or podcasts) and want to know if it will still work when I upgrade to Windows 8. Will I use Xbox Music? Zune? Another music app?
I had the Windows 8 preview on another system but the music app wouldn't work for me at all, so I couldn't test it there.

Ah! Sorry din't understand about the actual Zune hardware. Does it sync over Zune desktop client? If yes, then I have my Zune desktop client installed on Windows 8 and it sync fine with my Lumia 800 and HTC Titan (7.8 ROM). I've never owned a Zune player so am not sure if it is exactly the same sync procedure as Windows Phone 7.x

I have a Zune HD and it still syncs fine using Zune software and Windows 8 Pro. Just download the same old Zune software (which you can still do at zune.net, btw) and you'll be fine. I have not tried using Xbox Music to sync with my Zune, but I highly doubt it would work anyway: The Zune software was built with Zune in mind, Windows 8 and Xbox Music were designed WITHOUT the Zune in mind.
I'll never get rid of my Zune software. I've got multiple copies of the install program just in case.

Thank you very much. I'm in the exact same boat where i still use my Zune HD daily (it's my mp3 player for the gym) and i also use a wp8 as my daily phone. I've stickied this post to remind me when i upgrade to Windows 8.
