But it has a tonne of composite inputs and output, which is 50s technology. And comparing the two, s-video is superior quality given a quality source.

Upgrade and destroy whatever old piece of crap still only has an S-video connection. The last car you bought, tell me did it come with a hand crank to start the engine?
It was more of a rhetorical question, but since you obviously have some modicum of smarts about you, I'll confess that what equipment I'm using is none of your business in regards to the question I asked. That aside, I am using some older video game consoles and computers which are not digital-capable, as well as a selection of digital-capable devices. When confronted with what appears to be an otherwise good device which has analogue inputs, I question why it would have composite rather than a better analogue technology.
No, the last car I bought did not come with a hand crank, but it did come with a six disc in-dash CD changer and no sign of a smart guy like you to warn me away. I really wish you'd been around. I've been living a droll and disappointing life with my hobbies and now realize I should just chuck everything and become a shiney device whore. I hope when I finally make this transition, you will make yourself available as a guide and, dare I say, mentor.
