AV Cable to connect HD TV

Hello everyone,
I Recently Bought the Pentax K-50 (Yodobashi camera - Akky - Tokyo), a Newbie to DSLR and am going through the various connections and settings - the basics actually. I See that the camera does not have the USB -AV cable to view the images / Videos on a HD TV, and getting that cable here (from Bangalore-India)seems next to impossible. I was wondering if i could use a Similar cable from NIKON - Nikon VXA13054 EG-CP14 A/V Cable which is available on amazon india. Suggestions and help greatly appreciated.
Thank You,
Sunny.

UPDATE to the AV Cable:
I finally got the AV cable through amazon and was able to connect to my HD TV. BUT...the resolution of the images is pathetic when i am connecting the camera to the TV. i am not sure if i am missing something, I just plugged in the cables and voila!! the screen popped up!! Is there is some work around that i am missing somewhere, kindly advice me.
(The quality of cable looks and feels genuine, it also has the ferrite bead, so i am guessing the cable is not the culprit)
Thank You,

The AV cable transmits a standard resolution (640x480) image, you aren't missing anything and there isn't any workaround.

Yes, too bad the K-50 has no HDMI out.
