If that TV has an external input, you might be better off getting a cheap security cam that outputs composite standard TV signal. I doubt that camera has any live feed or external monitor capabilities. Even if it had USB drivers to turn it into a webcam, you might as well use your PC to monitor. I understand trying to repurpose some old equipment but in this case it might take more effort or jury-rigging to get it to work. Good luck.
