Had tech out two weeks ago and replaced the dish, cable to the house, and removed the DPP44 switch because of recurring signal losses. Today another tech showed up to bury the orange cable. Did an o.k. job on the digging but after he was gone I noticed that the ground wire on the orange wire has been cut off and is not attached to the connector block on the side of the house. The connector block is however grounded to the service panel for the house. Was curious if this is acceptable or should the orange cable ground wire be attached to the block. I'm no electrician, but have always been told that ground wires are there for a reason.
