I am happy to see a thread on the Yamaha 1700 and 2700's. I have not had any luck with OSD. I called tech support to find out about such and was informed that if the signal was 480p or less, then the OSD would work. I tried and it did not. Overall, I am still happy with the unit and its perfomance but some of the best features are nearly unusable based on quirky design. I have HDMI in from Dish and from DVD player. On the DVD player, it would not talk well with the Yamaha. I ended up with a screen taller than it was wide. When the movie finally started, it ran for 30-60 sec. and then quickly cycled between green screen, blue screen, snowy, then black out. The pic would come back up but it cycled over and over with no resolve. This may be the DVD player anomoly but I thought it should be posted in case others run into the same thing. Initial set up is fairly intuitive but my skills need to be honed before tackling the user features.
