How to prevent S Video cable from overriding DVD signal?

My (very basic) DVD player is connected to my (also very basic) TV with RCA cables. My laptop plugs into my TV with an S Video cable (so I can watch Netflix streaming, etc). The problem: if the S Video cable is plugged in (even if the laptop isn't connected on the other end) the TV won't recognize the signal coming from the DVD player. My solution is to simply unplug the S Video cable when I want to use my DVD player, but ideally I'd like to keep it plugged in and have some sort of switching mechanism. Is there such a product and if so, can someone provide a link? Thanks!

I need a DVD ripper that isn't scared of scratches

I'm looking for a robust mac program to rip ISO images from DVDs. I have some discs that have minor scratches; while they play fine (with minor skips) in DVD Player, the ripping programs I have tried so far give me an error message and abort when they encounter these spots on the disc. I've tried both the disc image function in Disk Utility as well as Disco. Are there other (free) programs that will be less easily panicked?

Help me find 일 박 이 일, Il Bahk Ee Il, Korean television with English subtitles.

일 박 이 일, Il Bahk Ee Il, with English subtitles? While I was in Korea, I loved watching Il Bahk Ee Il with my brother. I'd like to find DVDs (ideally) or other video sources of the show, but ones that I can understand. For that, I'd like English subtitles. Where should I look? (If I can find it before my brother, I'll buy it for him—if it's only available in Korea, he'll buy it for me.)

Rip and Burn Multiple Movies to a DVD using New 0.9.4 Handbrake for Divx player?

Since Handbrake 0.9.4 seems to have gotten rid of the .avi/Xvid option, is there anyway to rip a DVD so it will play on a divx etc enabled player? If you have the time, I would appreciate a step by step breakdown. Much appreciated! (and thanks way back when for figuring out how to do this on the older Handbrake).

Best Software (Free or Cost) to Catalog Divx Movies on a Mac

I am looking to catalog my DVD library (mostly of DivX movies). I own an IMac. Is Delicious Monster the way to go? I want to be able to simply enter the title of the movie and have it come up with the real box art and keep it in A-Z or numerical order. No more no less. I emailed customer service and they never responded so I am consulting the Metafilter Oracle on this one. If there is anything cheaper or free, I am open to that, as well. Until then....a loonnnnnnng Excel spreadsheet. Thanks for your time and have a good Halloween weekend, folks.
