When i had my install in june, I mounted my dish and ran all NEW RG6 cable from the dish to my central location (with a grounding block mounted in a metal box at the entry point to the house), then to each of my receivers. Doing this i knew i would have all new cable and only two breaks in the lines for possible loss. My dish was peaked (getting all 95% and above) everything was all ready for the contractor to come and only have to hook up the receivers, activate and leave...... Well, the contractor shows up.... hooks up all my receivers, activate them and they all work great! still getting 95% and above on all transponders. i am a happy customer (for now) Then, the contractor says that he needs to go up to the roof to peak the dish then, he will be out of my hair so i can enjoy my new setup I asked him why? my lowest is 95%..... he then explains that "Its D*'s policy that they MUST PEAK THE DISH TO THE MAXIMUM SIGNAL" and if they don't D* fines them $200 or more :lol: :lol: Knowing this is TOTAL BS, i decided that if he really wants to crawl up on a wet rubber roof in a rainstorm on a 4 story building well, power to him... but, i tell him first that i have brand new cable and i DONT want any cuts in the lines.. Going up to the roof this weekend i come to find that he not only cut one line but, ALL FOUR LINES!!!! he then used crimp style ends and barrel connectors to join the lines back together I have since replaced the ends with compression fitting and clean up the barrel connectors but, my question is... how can i seal up those connections (make em water proof)... would simply taking off the connections and putting a nice layer of the tape plumbers use on the threads of pipe work??? and other tips?
