How do you arrive at r1c8=8?

Potential DP 78 is labeled *.
Either:
R78C1=16; 16 pair in B7; R7C3=8; R1C8=8.
or:
R7C8=9; 18 pair in C9; R1C8=8.

Thanks. I was just attacking it in a different way, trying to use pincers. The pincers in r7c3 and r1c8 take out the 8 from r1c3 which makes r1c8=8. I should have followed up a little more closely.

XY-Chain
If r7c2=1, then, r2c2=5 ->r2c3=4 ->r6c3=6; r7c3<>6 solves it.

After basics:
Code:
+----------------+----------------+----------------+
| 3    269  268  | 26   1    5    | 4    89   7    |
| 14   15   45   | 7    38   9    | 6    2    38   |
| 68   269  7    | 246  238  34   | 1    5    389  |
+----------------+----------------+----------------+
| 2    3    9    | 5    7    1    | 8    4    6    |
| 5    7    1    | 8    4    6    | 9    3    2    |
| 46   8    46   | 3    9    2    | 7    1    5    |
+----------------+----------------+----------------+
| 1678 16   68   | 24   23   34   | 5    6789 189  |
| 1678 4    3    | 9    5    78   | 2    678  18   |
| 9    25   25   | 1    6    78   | 3    78   4    |
+----------------+----------------+----------------+

To avoid the DP, either
R78C1 is 16, forming a 16 pair in B7; R7C3 is 8. Or
R7C8 is 68, forming an XY-wing 6-89.

Either way, R1C3 <>8, solving the puzzle.
