I cannot seem to get the main menu of the AVR up on my TV. I have the AVR connected direct to the TV with component video just for this purpose (Otherwise everything is going through my new Oppo 103 with HDMI. I am changing the input source to Component 1. Do I need to run coax or an S-video for this OSD set up?

I don't think the AVR 520 does OSD over component video. My AVR 320 didn't.

s-video or composite should work.

page 19 of the AVR 520 owners manual.

Quote:
To view the on-screen menus, make certain you have made a connection from the Video
Monitor Out Jack on the rear panel to the composite or S-Video input of your TV or projector.
In order to view the AVR 520’s displays, the correct video source must be selected on the video display.
Note that the on-screen menus are not available when a component video display is in use
