Denon AVR 3801 wonky OSD

Hi all,

Connecting a new Sony 65" and BluRay player into my old system and I am having trouble with the on screen display. My ultimate goal is to assign the BluRay players digital audio to Optical 1 input. This is via a Denon AVR3801 receiver.

I've connected an old TV to the composite monitor output as OSD only works in composite or S video. I can get the Setup OSD up but as soon as I try to scroll up or down to any setup options the display goes wonky then mutes the video output.

I've tried just counting button presses but that isn't working and I don't think I am really scrolling through any options.

The manual implies that Opt 1 should be assigned to DVD by default, but it isn't, so I am stuck.

Any ideas?

Have you tried resetting the microprocessor per the instructions in the Owner's manual?

Thanks, good suggestion.

The display is still wonky, but at least that did set the inputs back to default. Opt1 is on DVD and Dig Coax on CD, which is usable.

Still, now I can't set channel levels. Not much you can do without a display!

The benefit of a newer model with networking (in addition to better audio quality), is that in addition to the HDMI OSD on the TV, you can also use the OSD via a laptop or tablet as well as control the unit with a smartphone.
