    I have the denon 3801 and I was wondering if I could see the onscreen display over the same signal used for my dvd display this way I would not have to switch input sources to see the osd. Some help would be great!!

    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.
