Kinda defeats the purpose doesn't it? Oh well. What about s-video upconversion on dish reciever. Shouldn't that component out?

I have the same issue with viewing the OSD when I'm running any component out i.e., DVD and component out on my dish receiver. Even in the latest newsletter Outlaw touts this as an advantage of owning a 1070. Am I missing something here? The sound is fantastic however.

I don't have a 1070 to test with, but it sounds like the 1070 behaves almost exactly the same as the 990 except for one difference. While the 990 will replace a component video input with a blue screen to display the OSD menu with a component input, the 1070 does not add any OSD data (either status info or the menu) to a component input. The s-video and composite video inputs would get both status info and menu superimposed on the input video signal, and those sources would then be converted to component video for the monitor output. That means that you should be able to use an s-video or composite video input (or a video input with nothing connected at all, such as the front input) to get the setup menu while using the component output.

I have absolutely no problems with the OSD on component. I use the OSD pretty heavily since the screen is a bit hard to see so I'll often be listening to CDs on my DVD player. At present the only video connection to my TV is through the component input and it displays the OSD regardless of source. I am not, however, running anything through the DVI channel. As far as I'm aware that's the only one that doesn't display the OSD.

Thanks gonk. I'll hook-up an additional s-video cable and see how it works. As long as it just superimposes the OSD info onto the component out, there should be no problem.

Still not getting an OSD with DVD. Comes up when source is turned off, but no superimposed when on. What am I doing wrong? Thanks

Note: By the way, I love this thing! Sounds incredible.

I was able to get the OSD by changing my DVD player to "Interlaced" in lieu of "Progressive". I still can't get it on "Progressive". But for some reason I can now see the OSD when I'm viewing HD programming from my satellite receiver. It uses component connections.

Am about to hook up my 1070 and my Oppo 971. The instruction book seems to suggest that the 971 be connected directly to the TV...a Pioneer 1140 in my case. Had planned to connect the Oppo to the 1070. Comments please. Have recently read that a coax cable better than a digital audio. Any thoughts on that?
