K-R Video Out

Can I use the USB/Video Out port on my K-R to connect it to my TV?

If so, can someone point me to the wire I need to get? Is it composite or HDMI? I would love a way of getting a live HD video feed out of my K-R onto my TV.

Video output cable.

The Pentax parts number is I-AVC7 and it is a simple USB to double RCA connectors, yellow for video and white for mono audio. Hope this helps.
Mike.

I am wondering if anyone has used this cable before. I have one and for the life of me I cant get a video output. Is there a setting in the menu I am missing? From what I understood, once you connect the camera and switch to live view, the output kicks in.

Umm Nevermind. The key was to simply READ THE DIRECTIONS LOL. The camera has to be off prior to connecting to the monitor. When its turned on the external video kicks in right away. Bought the cable from amazon for about 3 dollars with free shipping. No need for the Pentax Part number, the generic one does the trick just fine.

Then you need a K-5 or K-01.
