? about inputs on plasma monitor

I've decided to go with a pioneer 42" plasma display (non-hdtv). For $1500, it's hard to beat.

Anyway, the inputs of the monitor are as follows:

Input 1: Mini D-sub 15 pin Analog RGB Signal (G on Sync compatible)

Input 2: Component1 RCA x 3 -C omponent Video Signal
Input 3: BNC x 5 Analog RGB Signal - Component Video Signal

Input 4: DVI-D 24pin Digital RGB Signal (DVI 1.0 w HDCP)
Compatible with Microsoft Plug & Play (VESA DDC 2B)

The DVD player will take up the DVI input, the cable box will take up input 2, but what can I do about Input 3?

What do i need to make the BNC comp. signal input work with say, an Xbox or anything with a comp. video output or VGA output?

I'd like to leave input 1 open for a computer hookup.

VGA breakout cable will work just fine.
