Can I install an "Extra" S-video input on my TV?

    I have the JVC 32D201 TV. It has 3 video inputs. 1 composite, one composite or S-video and one composit or component.
    The JVC 32D501 had Picture and Picture and also had 2 S-video inputs. I noticed the plastic on the back of my TV looks identical to the JVC 32D501 except for the S-video jack, which has a hole, but only has a flat plastic circle where the S-video jack should be. I could take off the back and install my own S-video jack in place (there is an opening there for it) and it would work instead of the composite inputs which sit beside it. I would simply need to know how to wire it.
    Any ideas if this is a good idea?
    I need it because I have a Laserdisc player S-video, a DVD player Component, and I'm picking up an SVHS vcr, S-video.

    don't mess with the insides of your set.
    simpy do the switching with a receiver or a switchbox. Many companies make s-video switchboxes for less than $50. much easier than poking around on your set.
    end of transmission...
