This Sony receiver DOES NOT display overlaying of the volume control level status when you are watching a movie. It only will display a volume status bar when you are inside its own GUI interface.

farbnj, you either have a unique situation or you misunderstood D Bone's question. There is no overlay of the volume level when watching a movie.
No matter what I tried on my receiver connected to an LG 3D 47" TV, it never shows the volume level indication when I go to change volume levels.
Let's make it clear and keep it factual for all those looking for these details.
The missing volume onscreen overlay does not bother me personally but apparently many other A/V enthusiasts do want that feature. This receiver does not have it.
Other than that, I recommend this receiver whole heartedly for those looking to get a new receiver in this price range. I think nothing else can touch it at this time!
I kept mine even though I detected that the transformer hums a bit on mine.
It has been kicking out fantastic audio ever since I installed it. It sounds even way better once I ran the auto calibration which seems to be pretty damn accurate.
No need for overly fancy Audyssey or whatever here! The Sony method is simple, fast and does a really excellent job. I cannot believe I stumbled upon this receiver at the sale price and have no regrets.
It sounds fantastic easily matching my high-end receivers (Sony STR-DA4600ES, Onkyo TX-NR905 and Pioneer Elite VSX-49TXi)! ... and it has more up to date features to boot! and was way cheaper to buy!
Holy cow! What a winner.
