I have this display with DVI and VGA inputs:

ViewSonic VA2703
http://www.viewsonic.com/us/va2703.html

And this TV antenna with a coaxial connector:

RCA ANT111R
http://www.amazon.com/RCA-ANT111-Basic-Indoor-Antenna/dp/B000HKGK8Y

I would like to watch over-the-air TV programs by connecting the antenna to the display. I believe I need a tuner that has coaxial input and DVI or VGA output. Is that correct? Do such things exist, and can you post some links of examples? Or is there a better way to watch over-the-air TV on this display?

Thanks!

Yes, you need an ATSC tuner with DVI or HDMI output, something like this. You could also use one with an HDMI output and a HDMI/DVI adapter.

You need something like this http://www.channelmaster.com/Digital_TV_and_HDTV_HD_digital_Antenna_Tuner_CM_7001_s/287.htm or if you wish to record programs http://www.channelmaster.com/Channel_Master_TV_s/304.htm There are others out there besides the two that I linked.
