I can't seem to get the On Screen Display Menu to come up. I have the monitor out connected to video in on the TV. I have tried both Svideo and component connections. I do get a blue screen and the TV auto detects a signal but all I get is a blue screen. No menu options.
The blue screen indicates a proper connection (signal received by the monitor). Try selecting "amp" on your HTR 2 remote then use any directional button at the center of the remote, the keys which circle the "Enter" button. Hopefully you will then see the menu appear. Use the same directional keys to navigate the menus.

Well, use the "Monitor Out" jack on the receiver, as that is what it's designed for.
Is there a jack labeled "Video 1 Input" or only "Video 1 Output"? It could be that the Harmon Kardon folks have a weird way of labelling so that "Video 1 Output" is actually an "input" to the amp that is then fed thru the "Monitor Out" jack. It will take some experimenting on your behalf. Some units will also NOT take an input or output thru the S-Video IF you have a composite cable connected to the (yellow) composite video jack for that same point, so make sure that is disconnected if you want to use the SVideo. Also, sometimes there is a menu setup in your monitor where you have to decide between Composite video or SVideo or Component Video, so check that in some cases as well.
Let me know what you find out.

Cables", are you refer to the red, white, and yellow cables?
Once you connected those from Cd/DVD to the receiver, did you then connect
another yellow cable from the "monitor out" on the receiver, to an
input on your television?
This is generally the step that people forget about.
The back of your receiver should have a "monitor" or "tv"
output on it. You need to connect another yellow cable from it to an input on
your TV, then turn your TV to that specific input.
I assume you have a component connected source coming into the Yamaha to give it sync and you are component connected out to the monitor. If you have no input you won't have osd on component only without a signal to sync lock.
It is always possible that the 730 doesn't actually have component overlay for osd, just its a 2in 1 out switched affair. Hence the manual says you also need the composite/ Svid as well...They certainly don't use both at the same time. Newer units have full up + down video conversion but at this age it won't have.
Almost always, there would be a yellow RCA female jack at the rear of the receiver that is marked "VIDEO OUT". With an RCA to RCA cable, connect this VIDEO OUT to a composite "VIDEO IN" of the TV. The TV must then be set to display AUX / LINE / VIDEO 1 / AV.
1. Video-out to TV: You should be able to connect the receiver to the TV with any / all of the available video modes.
However, if you don't have the HDMI connection, then the Video-In on the TV would have to be switched back-n-forth between Composite / S-Video, depending on how each device is connected to the receiver. [If the TV has 'auto-sensing' Video-In then it should automatically detect the incoming signal from the receiver whether S-Video or Composite or Component.]
2. Audio-Input to receiver: As the receiver provides only two Coax-Inputs, you would have to first assign Coax-1 to DVD and Coax-2 to Cable. Then connect the coax cables accordingly; that should do the trick and allow you to hear the cable sound over coax.
If you still have a problem then check the 'Input mode' setting; leaving it on Coax-1/2 (Auto) would be the better option. This is on pg. 50 of my manual "Specifying the Digital Signal Format".
Try connecting to the yellow RCA monitor output on the amp and corresponding input on the TV. This works for me. You could also try the composite outputs on the amp. This is one flaw the amp has that the setup screen will not display through the HDMI connection.
