I'm wanting to redo the wiring for my DirecTV install. Once you get down to the pics, you'll see why. Part of this is I'm wanting to tie the DTV wiring into my existing coax cabling that I did myself when I moved into my house. I did my own drops into each of the 3 bedrooms, the kitchen, and then 2 drops into the living room. For my receivers, I have an HD DVR in the living room (2 drops) and then a standard receiver in two bedrooms (1 drop each). OK, here are the pics. As you'll see, by running the wire underneath the vinyl siding, it has worked the siding away from the wood which is leaving it exposed to the elements. Also, this wiring looks really ugly on the outside of my house. The next few pics are from the ground. You can see the dish in the background and where the wires go from there and then finally, the splicing/grounding rig. Well, I think that is what it is since there is a ground wire going from it to the water spigot. Here is what I want to do: 1) Drill a hole in the side of the roof underneath the overhang pretty much underneath where the dish is right now. 2) Undo all of the wires that are on the outside of the house right now. 3) Run all of the wires through the hole into the attic of my house. 4) Connect all of the DirecTV cables to my existing cables. Now, my biggest concern is this. I saw the 4-wire thing on the outside of the house. It looks like that that is used for grounding all the wires to the water spigot on the outside of the house. If I put that thing in the attic, I don't think I have anything reliable to ground it to. There is a metal pipe up there, but it used for gas into the house. It seems like grounding something to a gas pipe might not be the best idea but I thought I would ask. I might have a water pipe up there somewhere that I could ground it to, but I would have to run a pretty long ground wire which shouldn't be an issue though. So, what do you guys think of this? Sound plan? Are there any things that I need to watch out for? Thanks.
