I got a new Furman Elite-15 PFi Power Conditioner - Should I connect the coax...
Good point, I did not mean to imply that the equipment would survive a direct lightning hit. However it is supposed to protect against a certain level of power spike or surge, and for any equipment guarantee to apply all devices including coax must be connected to the surge protector. If you do not connect the coax thru it they will argue that you just invalidated the guarantee.
Also I hope you guys are not advising against the fellow getting his Furman repaired and at least functioning as designed before drawing any conclusions. If it's not working with his cable or sat he should find out why and take the responsible installer or manufacturer to task. It may not be perfect but it's better than nothing.
Obviously there is a market for much more elaborate lightning protection systems in Texas but I'm not interested in them right now.
