One problem I would think of is that both the composite and the svideo 
inputs use the baseband line audio inputs, so at least as far as audio 
they would be seen as the same by your system.

I haven't tried what you are trying to do but I suspect it would, at the 
very least, take a lot of work to make it work, if indeed it could.

You would have to change the channel mapping so there was no overlap, as 
well as deal with the audio problem.
