you need to use a composite or s-video lead from monitor out on the 3803 will not show on screen menu over component.

make sure you are plugging monitor cable into right hole on back of 3803 . when i moved mine round i spent a few hours trying to figure out why it would not work. there is so many connenctions its easy to get it wrong.

i use a cheap composite into plasma. remembe to select the imput its going into on plasma too. mine is on av.

press this then the one above it that says setup.

maybe as defalt its setup to composite as thats the free cable i got with it. just maybe

ps make sure on your plasma you have s-video selected too.

As far as I know the 3803 will display the OSD via component. My old 2802 didn't but I'm pretty sure the 3803 will, otherwise it would be pointless having composite or s-video upconversion as you'd still always need to have a comp/s-video connection to use the OSD.

Also make sure the remote is set to AMP (in the LCD window) before you press the Setup button. :)

Hello all

Jmack - one of the advantages of the AVR-3803 over the old models is that the 'On-Screen' is overlaid on the YUV out.

Best regards

Joe
