That's very weird that anytime I enable the volume osd I get the halo around HTPC text. Wow, I'm at a loss of words unless my receiver is 'mildly defective'. However, even if it is, I'm not sending it back for that, I'll just live without the volume osd rather than live with a halo.
My Onkyo nr-676 doesn't have that issue, maybe should have stuck with the Onkyo despite the slightly harsher trebles and vocals.
Is there a network API you can use? Then perhaps you can control receiver volume and display it in your own HUD inside windows. This is the approach I'd be taking at least. I suspect you may be capable of it as well.
