Hey guys, first post here and it looks like a great forum.

My questions is, I just got a really nice ViewSonic LCD TV for xmas and I want to hook it up to Over-the-Air HD and I already have a huge antenna on the roof of my house. I just need to know how I can convert the cable in the pictures below to a normal DTV connection for my TV. I do have lots of experience in soldering and making cables because I worked in pro audio for a few years. Thanks everyone!

The photo is the 5-wire for the rotor. You will, of course need a rotor control to hook it up to.

As for the antenna lead, it shoud either be 300 Ohm twin lead or 75 Ohm coax - when you find it, take a pic and we'll tell you what to do with it.
