Got a question for you experts out there: I have had a surge suppressor on the RG-6 cable feeding my sattellite receiver for the past several years (one of those combos that does surge suppression for the power as well as surge suppression for the coaxial cable). However, in the past couple of weeks, I have been losing my signal, with a complete loss of signal for the past 2-3 days. I tried removing the coax surge suppressor, connecting directly from the sattelite to the receiver, and everything works perfectly. Am I setting up my receiver to get fried?
I live in Southern California, so the lightning risk is quite low; and I am guessing that a surge suppressor is not designed to protect against a lightning shock anyways.
Any ideas or insights out there on this?
