    Does anyone know if the OSD for the Denon 2106 and YAmaha DSP-ax757 works through the component out? I have not had an amp that uses OSD before so am unsure as to how it works - from a connectivity point.

    Also I believe that out of these 2 amps, only the Yam will Upconvert to component. Would I need a 'box of tricks' to get my SKY plus from RGB to SVIDEO in, on the amp, or is it simply a Scrt to SVIDEO cable?

    Cheers

    Can't answer your OSD questions, but I can tell you that my Sky+ has an SVIDEO output on the back as well as the SCARTS - mine is a PACE v2, but I would think the newer ones would be the same.

    Many thanks, just checked - I have the same box as you, so the S-video is there. Never occurred to me that it would have that connection as well :)

    Just need to find out about the OSD now

    Most amps can't send the osd via component (infact i'd be supprised if either did), the upconversion yes take in s-video and give you component, won't look any better but means one cable convience, especialy if your pj is on the other side of the room or celing ect...
