Yes, the dish is supposed to be grounded along with the coax. I suggest you go to our sister forum "dbstalk.com" and then ask your question in the directv installation forum. Lots of knowledgeable installers hang in this particular forum...

Got my dish moved today and the installer didn't ground the dish itself, the coax cables were grounded properly. I called D* and they say the dish doesn't need to be grounded. Any comments?

D* came out today and grounded the dish to the other lug on the 4 way grounding block. The opposite lug has a wire going to the ground rod which is bonded to the house ground.
