This is exactly what I needed to connect my TV to my Directv mini genie. I have two TVs on one genie. The mini genie only has one HDMI output though. The other is similar to the old S-video output, but they give you an adapter cord that converts that to component video/audio. So I ended up with two male ended component cables and needed this double sided female adapter/coupler to get my other TV to work.
PROS: Inexpensive (Amazon was selling the same thing for $10...noticed today it's $5) Perfect for connected two male component video/audio cables
Needed to extend the length for my Wii component cables (also purchased at Monoprice). This fit the bill perfectly. The connector is high quality at a low price (as is all cables and connectors I've purchased at Monoprice).
I had a couple of component devices on the other side of my entertainment center and needed a way to extend their reach ... these work perfect! I'd even recommend these if you only needed audio extensions and can cut up as well as they're VERY cheap and worth throwing a few in your basket for that "just in case" moment. You never know.
