So the Coax connector broke off the TV, this TV has component and HDMI inputs. Is there an inexpensive adapter that will go from the wall coax to the TV's HDMI? Otherwise my only other option I think would be to solder a new coax connector on the TV.

You are correct.
option 1: an external tuner
option 2: repair the broken connector

Option 1 options here:

Option 1. Research your TV and order the I/O board from the internet. I fixed my Sony TV for less than $80.

Option 2. If you are using the coax connector for OTA broadcasts (Antenna) you are out of luck. The tuner only works through the coax connector.

Option 3. If you are using the coax connector to tune cable channels you could get a set top box and connect that to the TV via HDMI.

Please search for existing threads before starting a new one. There are several here and in the Displays section on this topic.

Walking the fine line between jaw-dropping and a plain ol' yawn.
