    RCA and BNC are the termination types so what ever the DVD and TV are fitted with, (this is nothing to do with composite by the way)

    For component (for prog scan) you will need 3 75ohm cables normally RCA but check your equipment and manuals to be sure.

    Most probably RCA, although you may be able to find the manuals on the manufacturers website and confirm it.

    You can also easily pick up RCA - BNC adapters from maplin. I used these on my plasma for a while until getting custom made cables.
