No, probably not. Try S-Video for that.

Thats only for a high definition television. Whats weird though is those look like female connectors. You would need male connectors to insert into your HDTV's female connectors.

Uhmmm
Most component (HD RGB) cables are male on both ends, so it looks fine to me.
