No, unless you can get a ATSC modulator for it. :)

ANd there very expensive. Ebay has 1 for sale right now for $1,675 dollars. I was looking at putting the thermostat temp in the corner of my tv while i watch tv, you can see the temp of the house inside an outside. What you would have to do is create a spider and the machine to create the ticker like espn or cbs does is very very expensive. your tv if it has picture in picture can do the thing ur asking thou, why not let your TV do the picture in picture to see the camereas and dish at the same time?

Ok you can not use this tv to do PIP soo that wont work. Only option is to switch between ur tv and ur computer inputs when it is time to see ur camera's.

All three component inputs appear to support composite video on the green input. This TV would appear to have no S-VHS inputs nor S-VHS outputs at all.

I think you would benefit mightily from a thorough reading of the manual. If you've thrown away the one that came with it, you can get a PDF version from the mitsubishi-tv.com website.

I'm not absolutely sure about the 722, but I have my security cameras hooked up to the TV Antenna Input on my 522 receivers. You'll probably need a modulator to convert the composite signal to RF Channel 3 or 4, but they aren't that expensive. ( I have my cameras first going to a security DVR which outputs a modulated signal that I feed to the 522's)
It works great, when the receiver is off, you can see the security cameras.

thanks for the advice everyone.
i think im going to see if a vga to composite or vga to hdmi will work with my pc to get it off of input 3 on my tv so i can use rca on that input with my security system.
the pc hooked to my tv is an older media center so i dont know if the adapter will work but for a few bucks i can check.
thanks again.

VIP's won't do NTSC so the RF channel 3 /4 mod won't work. It can only be an ATSC signal.
