I want OSD to work via HDMI in 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p. (not just 480i) I dont need "overylay". I just want to use OSD for easy setup! I only want to use HDMI to my projector. HTPC DVI-HDMI, Xbox via Componenet, VCR, all through AVR HDMI output
I thought the 2700 was "the one" but maybe not. The SQ is suburb from what I've read and what I heard on older Yam AVR's.
-Sound Quality? (check)
-basic HDMI switching and analog passthrough or convert? (check)
-Nice OSD On Screen Display via HDMI (from what I read, FAILS) crap, but again the whole network interface gui is good enough for me! (still interested)
still, they should make OS work via HDMI in 480p, 720p, 1080i, or 1080p.
(add it to the list after HDMI 1.3!)
My projector (ax100) will only accept 480i via component. My projector HDMI only accepts 480p or better.
The Denon I was looking at has the same 480i OSD via HDMI problem.http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showt...00#post8759500
hmmm so since I really only want OSD for easy setup, the whole network interface thing I saw a few pages back would work. I'm using a HTPC/MediaCenter (does the cool Windows GUI app come with this Yammy?)

In response to your emaiL: Since you are using HDMI video monitor out to connect your receiver to your tv, the On Screen Display (OSD) video signal is outputted at a 480i video signal. Therefore, if the video image (from dvd player, cable box, satellite box, etc*) is being output at a higher resolution than 480i (High Definition 480p, 720p, or 1080i, 1080p) than it will not work because the 480i OSD signal will not overlay over the video image. Try turning off all video signals and then test out the (OSD). Or you may want to use either a RCA (Yellow Cable) or S-Video cable monitor out and connect that to any available video input on the back of your tv. Thank you! af
I'm pretty disappointed in this, and am going to do some more research on trying to make this work, but I'm starting to think that I'm going to have to return my 2700. I can't understand why an advanced system that is capable of working with HiDef and multi channel audio can't do something as simple as display what level the volume is at on screen (my nearly 10 year old RX-V2090 can do that), I'm planning on making this system the backbone of my home audio for the next 10 years, if it's already falling short of current technology I don't think it's the right system for me ... I'm going to take a look the Denon AVR-4306.
