FYI, component outputs would be useless, as the video on LD is a composite format. In fact, S-Video is usually a step DOWN in video quality. You see, to get S-Video, the composite signal inherent on the disc must be separated into two components. To do this requires a "comb filter". In general, the comb filter in a TV is better than the one in a Laserdisc player, thus you will have better performance on LD if you use the composite video out.
