You will need to use a converter box that goes between the cable box hdmi and the monitor. Here is one example of the converter box:

Mike , can I just connect the my cable box to the monitor they both have a coaxial connection. I don't know how to change to tv from video on screen
Expert:  Mike G. replied 1 year ago.

ok, but coax connection will be LOW quality audio/video. Using an hdmi to Component converter will be HIGH quality (HD) audio/video.

If you use coax, you have to get the monitor on the TV / Tuner input using the SOURCE button AND do a channel scan, then set it to CH 3/4. You need the remote for all this. See page 35 of user manual:

Whereas if you use Component video, all you need to do is press the SOURCE button on the front of the monitor and choose component.
