I'm trying to save money and use an old computer monitor to display what I'm transferring on my DVR/VHS combo machine and need some help.

I have this Toshiba VHS/DVR
that I bought so I could record my family VHS tapes to DVD. I liked it because it is all in one and don't need to fuss with connecting a VHS to a DVR and then to a television.
I have this old Acer Monitor
sitting around that I would like to use for this process instead of going out and buying another television. I don't need this connected to an outside cable line or computer, just a connection from the monitor to the VHS/DVR.
My question is, what video cables do I need to make this happen? I have all of the original cables that came with both items as shown at the links I provided above.
(I don't need the audio - I have a separate set of speakers that I plan to plug into the audio out on the VHS/DVR.)
