Grounding of Coax

Message 1 of 3

Does the coax line if it's installed indoors with an indoor ONT requried to be grounded at the splitter? I noticed the tech never grounded the coax line, is there any signal/video quality problems that could arise since the splitter is not grounded? If i have a ground block for the coax, is there a recommended one to use? Also if i ground near the ont the main coax and then about 50 ft downstream in my home media panel there would be a 6 way splitter and it also has a ground screw, does this need to be grounded as well?

hi to all,
was this subject moved to another section?
proper grounding is important.
and could be problematic if it's ignored or improperly grounded.
thanks,
