Unfortunately, as you've discovered, S-Video has been dropped from just about all modern a/v equipment, and multiple composite inputs are starting to get hard to come by, too. To get even 4 composite inputs, you have to get top-of-the-line models like those you've listed. There are other (more expensive) companies that provide receivers with 4 inputs, like Arcam and Anthem, but, again, only in their top-of-the-line models.

For that many connections in "legacy" formats, your best bet might be to use an outboard switch. I had one a long time ago that was 6 inputs and one output, and had composite/s-video/component IN and OUT. I think it had issues converting composite to component, but there were enough ways around it that I didn't care.

Now that I think about it, I MAY still have that box lying around somewhere...
