Component or not

Got a sony dav sc5 and this link say's its component

When i look at the back its got video in X2 and video out X1 and a scart socket.
so is it component ?? or composite ??
What advantage is the progressive scan,

I have an xbox and a video connected to " video in " and the scart going to my pw7.
Any info welcomed

Component connections are 3 phono type connectors which are 1ea red, green and blue. These carry the picture only to a television with the same connections.

Composite connections again 3 phono connection but are red, white and yellow. These carry picture and sound to a television with the same connections. White and red are left and right sound while yellow is picture.

Go for component if you can as composite is worse than s-video and scart RGB.

Sorry ment to say i have this system but the link say's component but all i see is composite.
Can the scart socket be rgb ? then i could connect using a JS RGB to VGA convertor. or will this not work ??
