I am currently modifying my box to accomadate Component, RGBCs, S Video, Composite, Analogue Audio out and SPDIF out (electrical) as well as the AVIP connector. If it works, and I write a tutorial, will anybody be bothered to read it? Photos included.

This is bloody awesome! I will definately read this..

btw, how are you going to do the RGB/VGA outputs? Include a transcoder internally or do the VGA bios mod?

Also I guess the different video modes have to be switched, true? As in grounding the different points to specify composite, S-video or component.

True all the modes are selected using 3 bit binary. 3 of 8 dip switches hidden behind the hindged front panel will select all the available modes.user posted image
I believe everything will work with the exception of VGA. The five wire RGB output will pass 15Khz (interlaced video) and after I finishing it I will try the VGA bios which should then give me 31Khz which of course is progressive and real VGA. The convertors you can buy simply upconvert to a format a monitor can deal with.
