Seeking Cable Help

I'm looking for a longer version of a cable that came with the camera.

It's a component cable (red, green, and blue pins at one end) with a small 5-pin connector at the other end that slips into the "component out" slot just under the handle.

I can't find this cable on-line and don't know what the 5-pin end is actually called.

Alternatively, I could go with the 5-pin connector to VGA or HDMI (I have a Manhattan LCD monitor).

Any assistance would be greatly appreciated.

I'm looking to buy 12 and 25 feet versions of this cable.

***

I believe this cable is the Sony VMC-30VC.

Unfortunately, could only find a 9.8 feet (3M) version available; still, it's longer than the one that comes standard with the camera.

Why don't you just extend the component end of it?
