Is it really a "mini-plug" (?); or is it actually an HD15 RGB plug like this one at the link below..
If this is the cable you need, make sure the pin layout is compatible.
It's probably like this one that's used to connect video iPods. It has RCA's on one end for composite video and right and left audio. The other end is the same size as a mini-stereo plug but has three connector bands plus ground rather than the two plus ground of a stereo mini plug. An identical cable comes with the Kensington multimedia dock for iPods and there are probably other sources.
Found it! It's a camcorder to VCR cable. Makes sense. The camcorder has limited real estate, therefore the need for the 3 conductor mini plug. Here's a link to one:
It really doesn't matter if the wiring topology is correct. They are all the same type of conductor, etc., so simply connect the mini plug on one end and move around the rcas on the other end until you get the correct connection.
My guess is that the cable is going to work correctly as labeled.
