Just curious if this is common. I have 6 tv's hooked through a DPP44 switch. This was all installed by Dish at the time I moved in about 9 months ago. Now every time the power blinks the DPP44 switch dies. The first install was terrible left everything just hanging off the wall. Repair guy replaced DPP44 (thunderstorm) and he mounted on the wall. He also told me dish is aware of this. My question is what can I do? It takes dish a week before they can even come out to repair. I am having them send me a new DPP44. What I do know is that 1. Nobody has installed a ground to the DPP44 body. 2. Is there a surge protector that I can put on the electrical recepticle to keep this from happening. This is the 3rd or 4th time in 9 months. Thinking of going cable!! please help.
