Yes the cables you have will work from the Mini to the TV.
All DVI cables have pins at a slant and the horizontal pin will fit right in the cross pin connector in the Mini.
You may need some software on the other hand to get the Mini to display @ your TV's resolution. I believe its DisplayConfigX, you can look into the HTPC part on some examples of how it works.
