    ViP722 has a single antenna input in the back, just connect an antenna.

    ViP722K needs an MT2 dual tuner module as described above.

    Can I install a diplexer at ota on one side dish antenna on other run both signals on one cable. Put another diplexer at receiver to pull signals off so I don't have to run another cable into house

    Good catch, Jim. I forgot about the 722/722K difference...

    Will a diplexer work? One outside at antenna another inside, so I don't have to run another cable

    Yes it will work. I did it back in the day I had 722vip receiver. Just remember though, if you upgrade to a Hopper system, you can not run OTA signals on same cable as sat signals. The Hopper uses MOCA to communicate with Joeys and uses same frequency band as OTA TV signals.
