In california we use mostly white cable. When I see black I know a cable company.
Mastec in Florida uses white cable.
If it weren't for flooding I would go get a picture of an install I saw last week.
They had bolted the Slimline Dish to one of those green telephone connection boxes located in a manufactured home park that's along a bike trail I ride on. Those things aren;t made of the heaviest metal and I can't imagine the phone company will be to happy about it.
Mastec recently ran wiring througout my house a few months ago and all the cable was black.
there are two colors used by Directv for cabling, color varies from area to area. Mine was black, but I have also seen white used,
knowing that it was not professionally installed, I would be tempted to hang off of it as well.
Cujo - Many rooftop 5LNB dishes were installed without the necessary additional braces to make a tripod instead of just the main 2-inch support. If you do not have these installed check with Solid Signal to buy two of their longer ones: http://www.solidsignal.com/prod_display.asp?PROD=DTVA3-LONGBRACE
I didn't even think of that... had to deal with calls relating to that several times and the threats when I told them I would need to get the 'offending' receivers deactivated and then send to commercial to get the correct account set up.
Oddly enough, those threats just magically go away once you mention that what they are doing is illegal and a form of signal fraud.
Okay, so they use two colors...I was only responding to the person that said installers don't use white.
saw a dish the other day that was clamped to the main electrical pole that goes to the meter box. i will have to drive over there and take a pic.
look carefully, here is an example of a horrid install, I do not recommend that anyone try this
