    Okay..here's a dumb question that I need help with. Am setting up my new receiver(Denon AVR-4802). I have the monitor out from receiver going to input 1 via S-Video cable.

    My DVD player is going to component input directly to TV. So when I have AVIA going I cannot bring up the on screen display to adjust speaker level.

    Anyone know how I can do this ? Do I need to hook my dvd palyer to component in on the receiver and then go monitor out via component ?

    Thanks for your input.

    Dave

    Dave,

    With the DVD connected to the component input, do you have to select a video input(i.e 1,2,3)? That's the first question. Then we'll go fron there.

    Dave,

    As you have learned by now from a couple of other threads, the Denon does no internal video switching. Component in = component out, S video in = S video out. Component in and S video out means NO video at all. Only the Kenwood VR5900, 5700 and 5090 have universal video and perform all switching and converting internally.

    I don't know about the Denon but my Integra Dtr-7.1 only outputs the on-screen display through s-video.

    Dave,

    You should be able to adjust channel levels through the front panel of your Denon. Some buttons have dual purposes. Look over your manual closely.

    You'll probably need a second person to read the sound meter while making the adjustments.

    I have the AVR 3802 and the manual states that the OSD is not dispayed over component video signal (monitor out) jacks and only from the s-video monitor out during playback.

    Hello,

    This is one of the things that I love about Onkyo. While my receiver (898) does internally switch from composite to S-Video, I am still without OSD when using component or when bypassing the video switching in my receiver. The receiver's display (not OSD) works great and I can adjust everything from the remote without using my OSD. I'm not sure if the Denon receivers are as user friendly in this way.

    I have also heard of people using PIP or Split Screen features on their TV for this purpose.

    Thanks,

    Jeff
