    Short answer - No.

    The RGB are video-components. They need audio also - red and white like hi-fi connections..
    The red/yellow/white are Right audio, Composite video, Left audio in that order. They would connect to similarly coloured terminals on the TV (I doubt if it has them at the back, maybe at the front mainly intended for video camera or digital camera connection).
    You should connect using scarts and use RGB mode if available, then s-video, then composite in that order for quality. Your DVD recorder manual shuld be quite explicit about the connecting options. All you have to do is make sure the signal types match.

    It is no good feeding an RGB signal from the DVD to a TV scart which cannot accept RGB. The TV manual should tell you which scart will accept what.

    Yes you can, I am using the same thing now. Cant afford to spend so much on a component cable. I think the quality difference is marginal on my CRT TV. As all are the same wire tpe, no problems so far. :thumbsup:
