    The only way to see the receiver's OSD while watching DVD is by using an S-video connection in addition to component. Component would run direct to the TV (best quality) and S-video (through the receiver) would be for setup purposes only. Component video ins/outs don't pass the receiver's OSD. Also note that of the two S-video monitor outputs (can't recall if the 3801 has this) only Monitor 1 carries the OSD. You wouldn't have to switch the receiver's input but you would have to switch the TV.
