Ok, well it can still throw 720p in a 960p box for me, so hat helps too. The VP30 sounds like the unit for me. A half-frame delay is a good trade for 2x the color saturation.

Do you know if the...

Yeah, you're definitely an authority on this sort of the thing because of your unique setup. Looks like I might have to study the service manual for my monitor and see if there's anything in there I...

I wouldn't mess with all that. Instead, I would just open the monitor and solder in a normal s-video connector. Solder points will probably be large and impossible to mess up.
