I've posted this on the dishsupport.com forum as well, but was hoping to get some different opinions. I've recently become a Dish Network customer ~1 month ago. However so far I've been not too satisfied with the service. Since installation, we've had issues with our receiver randomly rebooting. Dish has been out to our house 4 times since the installation to try to figure out the issue. Twice they've replaced the receiver thinking it was a bad 722K. Now on our 3rd receiver, it is still having these issues. Temps are not a problem as I have a fan blowing over the device, and the Avg Temp is only around 105. I've tried it with and without a powerstrip, and in multiple outlets. Reboots are random and can occur a few times a night. I suspected there was an issue with the satellite's grounding. We live in Idaho, and the wind coupled with low humidity probably puts a bunch of static into the system. Dish sent a tech out this morning, and sure enough, he found that the system was never grounded at installation. He stated that normally they didn't have to worry about grounding the system. I would think it would be required to be grounded at installation. Here's where my question comes in to play... He pulled the grounding prong out of the receiver's plug, and plugged it back into the wall (essentially making it a 2 pronged receiver). He stated that should work to resolve the issue. He said if this doesn't work, that we'll need to install a grounding rod close to the dish in order to ground the system. Our home was built up to code in 2006 (I know it has a grounding rod although it may be at a different end of the house). My question is basically...is this safe? It seems like he has opened us up to major electrical issues here by not having the dish grounded. It also seems like just removing the grounding prong from the receiver would make things worse by not allowing the receiver to discharge any excess electricity. Thanks for any help!
