    I just recently purchased this receiver and it is great so far. This is the most complicated receiver I have ever bought and it is really confusing me. Can I program it just using the remote and the front panel switches or does the majority of it have to be done while using On Screen Display?

    Second Question, I realize that to do OSD I need to have an S-video cable going from my receiver to my TV, right? Well, I currently have component video cables going from my DVD player to the receiver and I was going to then run another set of component video cables from the receiver to the Sony Wega TV (non-HDTVI have. Would this be redundant since I am already having to run an s-video to the tv from the receiver? Am I better off just using one of the video modes for OSD programming and keep the component video cables connected for the pictures transfer...is it necessary? I'm a little lost here. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks

    You can do all adjustment using only the remote.

    Component offers better video for dvd. You will need the OSD to set the Front Input In/Out choice, Advanced menu options and the Speaker Setup like Size, Sub X-over, 5.1 or 6.1/7.1 option, Bass Peak Level, Multi-room, these are basicly a one time adjustment you can do by temporarily connecting an RCA or S-vid cable.

    Other than that you can basicly set everything else up with the remote and front panel display like delay, speaker output level, sound mode choice per input.
