-- Coax Surge Protection (http://archive.tivocommunity.com/tivo-vb/showthread.php?threadid=181868)

You can certainly use them, but they do attenuate the signal somewhat. More importantly, what is the point? Other than a direct hit on your dish from a lightning strike that will fry your Panamax and everything connected to it, there is virtually no possibility of a surge coming down the line from your dish. Cable signals DO need surge protection, since inductive surges can and do travel long distances down the coaxial cable.

I wouldn't bother.
