there are two outputs, the "A/V out", which has right and left audio, and a composite (yellow) video signal. the other one is the component (R/G/B) out.

BOTH outs use a proprietary sony cable to conect to the camera - A/V is sort of a "D" shape, component is more or less rectangular.

OK, maybe I got my composite and component mixed up...

The A/V out has the yellow plug, and the video signal is on that plug...
The composite out would be the R/G/B - three separate RCA plugs...

What inputs does your monitor support? One of the stock SONY cables should allow you to connect... The R/G/B should be the better quality picture.

Dave had it exactly right.

They are in the following order, from left to right in the picture you described:

LANC
HDV/DV (Firewire)
Component (RGB Cable)
A/V (Composite Red White Yellow)
Headphone

So to answer your original question, A/V out is composite, which is probably what your monitor wants. If your monitor will accept component, use that.

Note that (if it's like the HC3) your cam will only output from the highest level output hooked up at the time. If you have cables in all the outputs, you'll only get HDMI until you disconnect that, then the component will be active, etc.
