First post - hello all. I know grounding of sat systems is an often debated topic, but I just wanted to hear others take on my recent installation. My dish (SWM 5 LNB) is mounted on an out building about 120 feet away from my house. The coax from the dish routes through the out building and into a conduit back to the house. At the house, the coax connects to a ground block which is then connected to the house ground. However, the installer did not run and separate ground wire from the dish assembly back to the house ground. I questioned him on this during the installation and he informed me that the shield on the coax (RG-11) was sufficient to ground the dish assembly. I am beginning to doubt this after looking at the manual at: (Being a newbie I can't post the DirecTV URL) and other posts on DBSTalk.com that reference similar diagrams. At this point, if the grounding is incorrect, I'm not sure what to do. I suppose I could try to fish a ground wire through the conduit since there was no messenger wire on the RG-11 coax or possibly drive a new ground near the out building and attach to that. The only problem with the latter is that I thought this could set up a potential between the house ground and the new out building ground which could be another problem. I also suppose if this grounding is incorrect, the easiest thing to do is to get the DirecTV installer back to my house and tell him to correct the issue. Thanks in advance for your help.
