Which composite?  Both the coax and rca-style plugs are composite video. 
  Basically, the quality goes:

coax > rca > svideo > component

But on that note, try adjusting the "minimum" quality setting for mpeg4 
-- I always assumed that if I bumped up the video bitrate, the quality 
would go up, but it wasn't until I made the max 1, and min 4, that the 
video quality finally started looking close to the original TV source.

And by all means, adjust brightness/contrast/colour(saturation)/hue to 
look better for your card.
