I'm fairly certain you could use a HDMI>DVI adapter if your cable box has HDMI.

this will get you video.
what about sound? Does the monitor have speakers? To get sound you would need to split the sound from the HDMI signal which is more costly.

This will work with cable card only, and use computer video card as display out. If you want switch digital channels you will need a switching adapter.
