COMPONENT & COMPOSITE NIGHTMARE!!

I have the UN55B8000 and as you all know this has a COMPONENT AND COMPOSITE input on the same connection. The "yellow composite goes through the "GREEN" input of the COMPONENT input. In order to switch to the "YELLOW COMPOSITE" you MUST unplug the "BLUE COMPONENT" wire from its socket, then the tv allows you to change the input from the remote.

As you may already know, I am trying to bypass this. Meaning is there a way to bypass pulling out the "BLUE COMPONENT" cable so the tv allows me to change to "COMPOSITE" I have made a video switching device to switch the "GREEN to YELLO" but i can change the input with the remote untill the "BLUE" wire is physicaly pulled out. AAAAARRRRRGGGGGHHHHH!!!!!!!!
COME ON GUYS THE ENGINEERS ARE NOT DOING THEIR JOBS. YOU GUYS NEED CUSTOM INSTALLERS SUCH AS MY SELF DESIGNING THESE UNITS NOT OLD, CUPCAKE EATING LAZY FARTS. SORRY JUST LETTING OUT MY ANGER. I AM REALLY STUCK HERE. I REALLY DONT WANT TO TAKE APART THE TV TO RESOLDER THE BOARD THE RITE WAY, WITH THESE TWO INPUTS SEPARATED!!!!!

COMPONENT & COMPOSITE NIGHTMARE!!

askhdman,

Why not just get a component/composite switch box, or a receiver that allows you to connect all of your inputs without having to switch devices or wires at all?

I fear I'm poking a beehive with a stick, but I thought I'd offer up the suggestion anyway.

BEE HIVE answer

next time bring a bigger stick or some bee killing machine. I have a home run with equipment and 12 rooms with these flat pieces of rubish all wired to the home run. I need to come in the tv composite and component I have no other choice or I have to redesign the system. HOURS and MONEY that I would not like to spend. I made a switcher that works great it turns off the component video signal and turns on the composite its actully kind of cool.....no pictures cause im thinking of pattening it.
