If you said there were headphones involved that would have changed everything. Wtf? Everyone knows the headphone issues.
Hey, careful man, there's a beverage here!

The problem of no setup menu being output to tv monitor from Denon AVR-3803 receiver has been solved by Brian Phoenix. The answer is as follows. The setup menu will not appear on the screen if headphones are plugged into the unit.
Thank you for everyone who responded to my problem.

This is exactly why I ask all those friggin' questions, and why I insist on people telling us everything. And even with all that pickiness, headphones never would have seemed a possible source of this issue.

I'm still interested in knowing: which video output of the Denon do you use to view the menu on the TV?
A good answer is easier with a clear question giving the make and model of everything.

I didn't know about this, but I have NEVER had a customer who used them and I can't think of a reason to use them when setting up an AVR.
My mechanic told me, "I couldn't repair your brakes, so I made your horn louder."

Well at least it was intuitive.

Or, it was found accidentally.

The acronym RTFM exists for a reason. Still not sure why he referred to himself in the third person, though.

This^^^

There's no reason to think that you could not set up an AVR with the headphones plugged in. However, there's even less than zero reason to plug headphones into an AVR while setting it up.

The acronym RTFM exists for a reason. Still not sure why he referred to himself in the third person, though.

Probably embarrassment.

...and RTFM is not an acronym unless you pronounce it rit-fum or something like that. If you say arr-tee-eff-emm, then it's an initialization or abbreviation. An acronym is a series of letter abbreviations that can be read or said as a word.
Laser, for instance: light amplification by stimulated emission of radiation.
Or radar: radio detection and ranging. That one uses the first two letters of the first word. An acronym is not necessarily just the initials.
