I have all my sources (HD-DVR, HD_DVD, Blu-ray) connected to the 875 via HDMI and Component cables, then component out to my legacy TV that doesn't have HDMI in. I get great 1080i picture over component and the unit processes Dolby True-HD over HDMI no problem. When I hit setup to make any changes to the receiver, however, the 875's OSD doesn't come up correctly via component output...I have to connect to the TV via S-Video as well and select the S-video input on the TV to do the setup. While connected over component, I do see the volume control and input selections on the TV.


Is this an issue with the 875's setup OSD or do I have a something set incorrectly?


Apprec. the help.

Make sure HDMI Monitor is set to No.

Yep. HDMI is set to NO so no HDMI out and component passes thru as component and S-Video passes through as S-Video or is upconverted to component output according to the diagram on page 29 (which is puzzling why the setup OSD comes out on S-Video fine but garbled on component). Monitor Out resolution is set to 1080i. As I mentioned, the volume and input buttons do come over the component output so I can see the volume level etc when using the remote.


Other thoughts? Customer support has been particularly unhelpful, even downright incompetent so far (after 30+ minute waits to get a person who is clueless). Hoping the combined experience here will set me straight.


PS. I also have an old Escient hooked up via S-Video, and I DO see that on the component out, so it is upconverting correctly...its just the SR875s setup OSD that's not output correctly.
