Just wanted to update you. After reading your reply about S-video quality, I received my S-Video cable today and all I can say is "wow" on the 800 S-video output, with the 130XE being a definite wow as well. The 800 (or mine at least) is a bit too bright in fact, but the sharpness is incredible. The 130XE is incredibly sharp and the brightness level is spot on, so I am giving the nod to the 130XE until I can figure out why the 800 is too bright.
I have used composite on the 8-bit for many years now, but have never seen anything quite like the S-Video output!
This is simple and extremely effective for fixing the 800's video:
