is it possible to view composite mode with component plugged

my Samsung LN40B500P3F TV is wall mounted, making it impossible to switch the cables at the back of the TV without dismounting it from the wall, which can be potentially dangerous at times. it also only has one shared component + composite input.

my solution for this was to hang wires from the component inputs so that things could be plugged in without dismounting it. it would work wonderfully, but the problem is that the TV refuses to go into composite picture mode if the component ports at the back are filled, even if I am sending only a composite signal.

is there a workaround to this? I didn't find any software updates on the Samsung website.
