That will not do what he wants.  That takes component and then allows
it to be displayed on devices which have a "VGA" plug (HD15) which
ALSO accepts component (usually projectors).  It's a DIY version of
this: http://store.infocus.com/escalate/store/DetailPage?pls=infocus&bc=infocus&pc=SP-VESA-ADPT-R&tab=desc&clist=017080322b69:017080322b6b&ret=Accessories-Cables+and+Adapters&pls5catname=Accessories-Cables+and+Adapters

It does NOT do the opposite (take a standard VGA signal and output it
in component).
