"sec/" might sound better, since who knows what might come later on ..

Sounds nice. The only problem is to get people to agree on such a huge 
change, eventhough cosmetic. It looks quite meaningful, atleast to myself.

What about silicon tuners ? They have sec/(tuner)rf stages + pll /demod 
everything in one single chip. Then there are split ones, rf stage + pll 
in one chip, demod + sec in another
