Do System 80's work with modern teles?

Just testing one out and I cannot quite tune it.

How does it connect? RF? If so, there should be no problem. I'm not intimately familiar with that system but I see so reason why it would be any different
as long as it can connect.

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong though, I appreciate I'm new and this is merely an educated guess.

I'm not sure Matt.

I know I can tune it into my '90s TVs but I've never tried it on a modern 1. I know the ZX81 has problems tuning into a modern TV and given the System 80 is approximately the same vintage....maybe not. The composite video should be no problem though. Do you have a cable which can do that?

Another reason to keep one or two of those old B/W TVs around...
