So, when I bought my home, it came with a vintage tv. I’ve been wanting to hook it up to a vcr Player, but the only cable running out of the tv is a satellite cable. On the back of the vcr, there is only the colored cable ports. I am not sure what adaptor I am looking for. Any information would be a great help. Thanks!

What you need is an RF modulator.

The only input that your Zenith TV will accept is from an antenna. An antenna catches RF (radio frequency) signals in the TV range and your TV tuner selects and tunes them.
To use it for anything else you'll need some sort of cable box/RF modulator/etc as was said above.
