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.
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.
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
