GEN4 Equipment

I can't seem to find any images of the new HT1000 equipment. I was wondering what the
modem and outdoor equipment look like compared to my HN7000S.. If someone can post a picture that would be great.

Modem is pretty much the same as the HN9000 series, just charcoal grey like in that picture, here is a pic of one installed on pole.

LOL Classic miserable install...

wire hanging inappropriately...... absolutely not to code.... wire going 1/2 down the pole and than pulled to the brick wall?

LOL

another installer needs to lose his job.

actually i see... it was a upgrade... he added a block to the pole to he could add 5 feet of wire and get the heck out of there.

lol

that's tragically funny.. they get highschool dropouts to do the installs and pay them probably $15/HR. and maybe mileage...

about as bad as being an IT Project Engineer and getting paid $18/Hr., with no OT or benefits to rack, configure, and build accounts and migrate data for a Texas based lawfirm. Ahhh. Corporate Amerika!!! Work more for less!!

That was about the only way he could install it considering the ground and local zoning codes. Had he taken that wire to the ground and brought in under the home I would have had to call zoning and planning because of the requirements for this little one acre lot. Seems you are just trying to find things to nitpick at IMO.

Rather ridiculous for this area honestly, installers don't consider local codes, or zoning codes, they just do what they think they should do, I saved my self a headache by not letting him run into the ground, and believe it or not, most satellites around here, they have to jump across like that because of zoning codes for this area. If I had let the installer go against code, guess who would be up the creek with a huge fine when the next door neighbors report a code violation, which they have in the past.

So next time you wish to complain about codes, consider federal, state, county, THEN consider some counties have different codes for different residential areas in that county.

Sure he may not have looped the wire or anything, but honestly, IMO, that's perfectly fine since the wire is at a low point on both sides of the block.

Classic example of why I self-install. Not only do I understand GBS, I've never had a problem arriving at an installation solution that conforms to or exceeds code.

grohgreg, please, go ahead and highly detail how you would have installed my dish to have met local building/zoning codes for my area, and standard install codes?

there is no code, please. in fact, that looks like a trip hazard.

proper install, wire goes down pole... buried under gound, and up the wall.

if there is a code, copy paste bud, i love to learn, when given direct proof of fact.

im not trying to fight with you, i just found it odd that it was done that way, i know if i got QC'd by my supervisor, he would call me on it, and ask for a explination.

Don't be facetious, it's impossible to detail an installation based upon one crappy photo. But it doesn't take a genius to understand and apply NEC to any given situation.

I don't see a ground wire from the installation or a proper ground post to attach it to! I'd be very careful when the next electrical storm hits - and also be cautious of static buildup in the wiring. Is it even grounded to the house ground next to the utility panel?

Look at the two horizontal black lines on the pole, and the red spot sticking out to the left of the lower line. What that strongly suggests is that - whoever installed this mess - strapped the coaxial ground block to the pole with a couple of cable ties. If true, it supports further suspicion that the idiot assumes contact between the block and the pipe constitutes an acceptable ground.
