Outside TV Jack

Tried to use the outside TV jack on our 2015 23IKSS for the first time tonight. I notice that the outside jack isn't a normal threaded coax jack. The jack is smooth and not threaded like a normal TV jack. Is there some sort of adapter-ma-jig that I need? Or should I just get a "push on" style cable wire?

Just use a push-on coax connector on both ends of the coax. I don't use any screw-on's any more for any of the coax hookups. Some places I don't have enough room to get my fat knuckles in to screw one on, like on the back of the TV.

Will-do. Thanks.

You can get a push on adapter that screws to the normal coax connector at most good electronic suppliers, no need to cut off the screw on connection. I picked mine up at "Radio Shack", trying to keep them in business. I looked at the big box stores and didn't find any but where you are they may have them. Just ask for a push on coax adapter. Places like Fry's most certainly would have them. I searched Ebay and saw them for about $1 each. Just search "push on coax adapter".
A lot easier to hook up coax lines.
