I know nothing about DirecTV but RF is generally a socket that outputs 
the video and audio as an RF signal, i.e., similar to what would be 
received down your aerial.  That way you tune it into your television as 
if it were a transmitted channel.

Alternatively, it _could_ be a socket to connect your antenna to, but I 
doubt that.
