I've had a Toshiba SD-2800 DVD player at the center of my home's secondary system for a few months now, and it's performed fine when hooked up to my monitor via its composite input.

However, after recently upgrading my switching capability to allow for S-Video, a problem has popped up with this otherwise well-performing player… in the form of jarring video dropouts during challenging program material (bright flashes, snap scene transitions, etc.).

Of course, I did the usual investigative drill, using different switchers, connectors, and DVD players. The problem is definitely a problem with the S-Video output of the Toshiba. I then tested another '2800, just to see if I had a defective unit. Sure enough, the same dropouts occurred with the second Tosh.

Have any other SD-2800 owners out there experienced this? Have I overlooked anything? Any possible suggestions?

I have a 2800 performing in my bedroom system just fine. I've played the thing through both S- and Component-Video connections, and have experienced no problems whatsoever. The component-video connection is much better, though.

How, exactly, do you have the player connected to your display (and what kind of display is it)?
