Had a fairly good thunderstorm move through the area this afternoon. While I didn't loose power, my 522 mysteriously died (now the 4th one since Dec '04). Did all the usual restart procedures and no-go. Dish is shipping out a new one ($14.95 s/h of course). In the mean time, I'm bringing up the 301 from the basement and I noticed that the insulation on the connector from the cable from the dish to receiver is slightly melted. Now, while I have surge protection for my home theater/ computer equipment, how can I tell if my sat system is/was properly grounded and protected? I did read the article from the local news about bad installs regarding grounding issues. Someone school me here...
