I had caught up momentarily, but I need more help with abbreviations: In searching threads for discussions of the Motorola DCT5100 cable box, I found an entry which used the terms PQ, IOW, and RF in the context of discussing other hookups on the back of a TV, such as component and S-Video. In his referral to "RF", was the writer talking about what I call the 75-Ohm cable jack? I have already checked the Glossary of Terms, but I guess I need a picture as well. Thanks/

The "RF" hookup you are talking about is also called the "antenna" jack. It is usually a coaxial cable receptacle of the screw on type and usually accepts the coaxial cable that comes out of the wall or cable box for cable TV reception or from the over the air antenna to your TV. Usually it is the only jack on the back of your TV that is threaded.
