Having two different grounds can cause the receivers to eventually burn out. It's hard for me to explain, but if your satellite wire is grounded to a separate ground than your electrical system, then your receiver will be connected to two different grounds (one is the electrical ground, the other is the satellite wire which is grounded). Any imbalance can wreak havoc over time. Personally, I think it'd be better to not have it grounded at all than to have it on a separate ground, but that's just me. I haven't had a single receiver go out yet.

*I should note that I did ground my original Dish Network receiver (way back in 97 I think) using a separate ground, and it didn't burn out, but I only kept it for about a year.
