Well I ran my new cable runs yesterday. Going through the Panamax surge protector marked "cable" resulted in no satellite signal. I connected directly and had no problem.

I'm going to try again to see if this was just a fluke/timing. However it looks like I need to get a surge protector for just two runs of RG6 (don't need outlets or minimal outlets). The primary reason I use a surge protector is the "insurance". Therefore I believe I need everything running through a surge protector.



If it is only rated for 1Ghz(like some are)it won't be able to pass the satellite signal. The monster coax surge protectors go up to at least 2Ghz, no matter what the label is on them(at least the models I have does)I had to verify this with Monster Cable before I bought them to make sure I wouldn't have any problems.
