    I just brought one home last weekend and the answer is "YES".

    Does it work when outputting a component video signal to your display device?

    I have a 3802 and it doesn't seem to have an onscreen volume display. Does anybody know otherwise?

    The on screen display (volume and other displays) only works through the S-Video or composite video outputs. If an input signal is put to both the S-Video and the composite at the same time it will output only to the S-video output.

    I have the monitor (TV) connected to my 3802 through the composite output (temporary) and I don't get an onscreen volume display. Bob, were you responding to my post?

    ---Is it still advisable to use "Monitor Out 2" on the 4802, to avoid video interference?---
    If you want to bypass the OSD you can use the monitor 2 outs. I have not noticed any signal degradation however with monitor 1 outs on my VPL-VW10HT on a 110" screen.
    Here is what the manual says about the OSD:
    NOTES:
    • The on-screen display signals are not output from the video signal MONITOR OUT-2 (yellow) or S-Video signal MONITOR OUT-2 jacks.
    • The on-screen display signals are not output from the color difference (component) video signal MONITOR OUT jacks.
    • For 4 above, the on-screen display signals are output to the VIDEO MONITOR OUT-1 video signal output jack (yellow) if the monitor TV is
    not connected to the S-video MONITOR OUT-1 video signal output jack.
    You can download the manual in PDF form from Denon's web site if interested.

    Patrick: you're right! I keep my Denon outputting component video about 90% of the time so volume control on s-video/composite video doesn't buy me much of anything. I heard the reason is they want to keep the signal path for component video as pure as possible. To my knowledge no a/v receivers output menus and such over component video.
