Yes you will most certainly need a converter box. At Radioshack you should still be able to get the piece that you would attach the spliced wiring to.One side of the piece I'm talking about has a screw for each one of the Y shaped spliced ends to attach to. Sometimes there are two places to attach things and sometimes there are four so buy the one that best fits your needs. Then the other side of the piece has the male part that will attach to the female antenna in part on the converter box. Then a cable goes from one of the outs on the converter box to one of the ins on the television.
jmeek: unfortunately there's not much you can do about this one. it's either the red gun in the crt has shorted, because of impurity build-up, or the driver for the red gun is shorted. either way it's repair or throw away time. tv repair shops used to carry a picture tube reconditioner that would zap the color guns in the crt to burn-off the shorts. it's doubtful they would have a socket that would fit your crt, but they might. they could possibly find a replacement for the driver if it's defective. but given the low cost of lcd's, that's i would be going. be sure to recycle the monitor correctly. please don't just toss it in a dumpster. there are computer part recycler's thru-out most of the US.
The aspire 5520 doesn't have an hdmi port but does have a DVI connector on the left hand side slightly forward of the VGA connector. If you are trying to connect the laptop to the hdmi port on a television you'll need a special cable or adapter. Adapters and cables are readily available to convert DVI to hdmi.
One of the best sources for these types of things is online at a site called newegg.com. You can search based on the Manufacturer and model number of your Laptop. If that fails you try the Manufacturers website, they will sometimes list where replacements can be purchased or well on themselves.
