Is there a A/V that will show on screen displays though componet video cables? I have a Yamaha RX-V 800 that will only do it though S-video. Thanks.....Jim

Jim, I doubt it. There is a reason why companies do not put an on-screen display with Component connections. Has to do with bandwidth or picture quality suffering or something like that. I know of no company who provides this service.

I am in the same boat - I run component to my HDTV and a composite cable for the OSD from my Denon.


Of course there is always the new Pioneer Elite 49TX or Denon 5803.


I know the Pioneer gives OSD through component, not 100% sure on the 5803 but I would think so.


Both of these look interesting to me for not only OSD, but upconverting composite and S-video source material and passing it out the component monitor out.

My system sits in an enclosed oak center. When I need the OSD, I take the composite cable that is hooked up to monitor out on my receiver and use the front input on my TV. When done, I can tuck the cable back beside the receiver and out of sight. For those that are constantly using OSD this would be cumbersome. I only use OSD for occasional tweaking and calibration.

My Denon 5803 does display its onscreen menus over the compenent output. For those that didn't already know, it also upconverts composite and s-video inputs to component.

Ken,

How is the quality of this upconversion? Is it going from 480i to another resolution or just changing the signal type? I ask b/c the Scientific Atlanta 2000HD cable box (used by TWC in their early HD rollout) performed this task (sort of...it upconverted SD channels to 1080i for component out) horribly - pushing green way up among other things...

I ended up using my video 3 on my Sony KP- 61-HS30 for the on screen menu. Then all I have to do is split the screen one with video 3 and one with video 5 and I can now watch DVD and my on-screen menu at the same time.... I am Happy now! Thanks again.....-Jim
