Despite advances in the technology behind TVs and connection interfaces, a 1994 Zenith TV is compatible with the majority of video devices. Cable and satellite set-top boxes feature composite video ports that will work with the composite video connections on the rear of a 1994 Zenith TV. If you use an antenna to receive your service or direct cable wiring, you can use the RF jack on the rear of the TV to directly connect to your TV service.

Insert one end of the composite cable into the Video plus Audio Out jacks on the rear of the set-top box.
