I'm trying to archive a laser disc as a digital file. My laser disc player (a Pioneer) has 2 video output options: RCA and a 15-pin port labelled "interface connector". The 15 pins are arranged in 2 rows. After researching video connectors, I think the 15-pin port is VGA. What would be the higher resolution output for creating a digital recording?

The 'interface connector' is (almost certainly) a serial control port, not a video output. LVD stored composite analog video, so there are no chroma or difference signals available to assist in digitizing the video.
