and if I would have to ground the coax
I am thinking no, not properly
My guess is one is from the equipment
One is to actual ground.
So you need a complete circuit to properly ground
Thanks again. Been having trouble with fios, that's why I've been asking so many questions
Has the Guy come by to trouble shoot it??
And there are good Guys and ones that do not know what they are doing
What problem are you having
Did you install any of those extra coax runs yourself ????
Feel like a pressure when I watch tv, it's so weird. That's why I think something's wrong. Here are pics of the coax. The inside one is upstairs
Here are the other coax.
The tv picture is actually hurting our eyes and it's not the tv. Yes but the guys barely check anything. They came about 3 times and every time they find a corroded cable. Probably from getting hit by sandy we haven't changed anything since then. And I honestly don't remember I've had fios since 2009
Did you install any of the splitters???
I know I did once, and installed the wrong one.
Not sure how the signal coming in would hurt the eyes??
Like I said have gone through a few Guys, and have had good ones and bad.
I would say, unless they charge you, keep calling for them to come out, just give them different problem.
Not up on fios, but is some of your signal internet?? If so do a speed test.
This is the speed test I use
I do direct tv and have a booster in my system.
See if there is a booster they can install
I don't think I installed any but I'll check to see if the ones upstairs are right, and my internet signal is good.
Make that I have uverse and direct tv
so what problems are there, besides the eyes?
There's just like a glare coming from the tv that normally isn't there
Every tv you have
Just do the picture adjustments to get rid of it???
Yea it's every tv blurays and video games are fine, that's why it has to be something with fios

I doubt grounding has much to do with it. It is most likely that everything connected is powered by DC. The grounding is a safety measure. It prevents the coax from becoming energized. It does also protect your equipment for the same reason - ground potential rise.
Your fios should be grounded if it was installed properly. There is, generally, a ground connection to a ground rod to ensure proper earth grounding but in the case of fiber optic cable (opposed to copper tele wire) there is no path to earth.
if you are having issues with the data signal there is a much higher probability to equipment issues than grounding. I recently had my DSL upgraded and had issues within 2-3 days - found a mouse chewed a wire 1/2 mile away from the house.
I was told if the issue was found inside my house I would be charged a trip charge - it was their problem and I did not get charged.
Yea it has to be the coax most of the wires got hit by sandy. Th only thing is the wires going upstairs and the one going into the basement are going to be so hard to replace
When is your contract up??
Change services, let them install new wire.
Current company should be able to come out and do a signal strength on each room feed.At least that will idea the line or lines that need attention.
Plus ask to have a booster installed
Yea I was thinking about doing tha just didn't know if it was worth it.
