I was recently given a 52-inch Monivision tube monitor from 1999 for free.. The previous owner purchased it thinking it was a television.. I brought the 200lb screen into my home and have since been using it as an alternate monitor for multimedia purposes.. I then wondered if perhaps I could use it for my normal cable TV so I looked on the back and noticed it has 2 female VGA ports for Video In/Out and at the end it has a male VGA port labeled Video Converter I/O .. I was just wondering if anyone could tell me exactly what type of hardware I would need to convert the monitor to standard Coaxial using this converter port as well as how to assemble it all!

As usual, all help is widely appreciated. :)

This cable should be able to accomplish your task...

If you were to plug this cable into your VGA port and then connect the other end to a TV box you will be able to receive
reception into your 200lb screen.

Let me know if this helps.
