My regular tv is hooked up directly with just a coax cable. I do not want to get a different box because it would be much more costly and I do not need all those channels or full hd in my room. The monitor only has an hdmi, dvi, vga, 3.5 audio, and an spdif port. I want to keep the coax only box but still hook it up to my monitor to watch tv. vga and dvi are visual only ports. spdif is audio i believe. that is why I am asking if I use a splitter and two separate converter cables if this woul succeed in giving me both audio and visual without having to pay more for a different cable box or having to buy a separate third party converter box.
I'm just gonna dive right in here so bare with me. So i just bought an Asus vh238h monitor mainly to game on but I really want to be able to use it as tv in my room too. here are the ports it has http://www.gamersbudget.com/wp-content/gallery/vh238h/vh238h-ports.png
the cable box would only be one of those small digital adapters with only a coax cable in and out of it. i had an idea but had no idea if it would work. i was thinking of using a coax cable splitter on the output one and then attaching this
to one end and inputting it into the spdif port and then this http://www.discountofficeitems.com/technology/networking-cables/cables-hubs-connectors-switches/connector-cables/startech-coax-hd15-rgbhv-monitor-cable/p151832.html?ref=pla&device=c&network=g&matchtype=&cid=ad-pla-non-brand+&gclid=CLO2jOOF-bgCFZFFMgodHU8AvA to the other open slot and into the vga input. my main question is would it work and what of those 5 coaxes would i plug it into from the splitter
