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.
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.
