Agreed, however a grounded system protects from static, induced spikes, and various ground fault conditions...Fredinva said:...A direct lightning hit on your house or dish is gonna cook most of your electronics and wiring anyway - grounded or NOT....
No, the idea is for an electrical discharge outside in the hopes of not going inside. Grounding inside is mostly for other reasons.dcorazal said:I looked at my manual regarding the grounding of the system. My dish was already installed by the previous home owners so I wanted to verify the grounding. All the manual says is to follow "grounding according to NEC National Electrical Code” I don't see any ground wire on the dish itself but the splitter that is in the house is grounded. Is this correct??

i wanna sue dishBobMurdoch said:Regardless, a story like this will just generate a bevy of lawsuits in the area, which was my main point. Frivolous or legitiimate, stories like this inspire the ambulance chasers in the area to slap a bulls eye on E*.
