    Hi,

    I've just got my RXV1400 setup. I've only connected it to Sky at the moment, but it does sound awsome. DVD will be setup in the next few days.

    The problem I'm having is that the navigation on the front display is damn confusing. I understand I need some sort of connection to get the on screen display working, but I'm not sure how to achieve this.

    Equipment
    Panasonic TH-42PWD6
    with Sky to VGA (via convertor)
    with DVD Player (via Component)
    I never purchased any Scart or Svideo terminal boards. Do I need one of the these.

    Any ideas whats the best way to get the above working. Even if it's only a temp fix just to tune things up.

    Thanks,
    Andy
    :)

    I know what you mean about navigating the Yamaha Receiver menus. You need to use the 'Right' cursor key to enter a menu option, then 'Up' and 'Down' to change it. To get the on screen display hook up the 'Monitor Out' component connections from the back of the receiver to your plasma screen using your exisiting component cable you are using from your DVD player.

    Thanks for replying.

    I assume if I had 2 x component cables I'd be able to leave it connected permantly, however a temporary connection is all I need

    Thanks,
    Andy

    You can also use s-video to link it up as well.
