Those two items should allow you to watch whatever over the air TV stations the antenna can receive on your HDMI connected monitor. If the monitor does not have built-in speakers you will need to work out a way to hear the audio portion of the TV show.

The monitor has this output, which fits an audio headphone 3.5 jack, so i'm guessing it would output audio that's incoming from HDMI. Is that right?

If the yellow jack is a composite video input, there is a good possibility that the 3.5 mm jack is an audio input jack to feed in audio that goes with the composite video input.

You need to check your monitor's user manual to know exactly what audio inputs and outputs it may have and if it has built-in audio amplifiers and speakers.

Is there a way to test that port to see if it's an input or output audio?

You could try feeding digital audio and video to the HDMI port on the monitor and plugging in a cheap pair of earphones into the jack. If you hear the audio, then it is an output.

The concentric rings and arrow symbol below the jack in the photo would suggest it is an input.

What is the brand and exact model number of your TV?
