I have had Uverse about 10-12 months and lightning has hit the outside uverse box 4 times now and twice within two weeks. Techs have been out and said it is grounded properly. They keep replacing the receivers and have also had to replace the gateway but do nothing to fix what ever is causing this. Can somebody please help me before I go crazy?

There is no absolute protection against a direct hit only the static discharge from a near miss if you are grounded correctly and use surge protection thats about all that can be done.

If lightning has hit that many times in less than a year, especially twice in the last two weeks I would start going to church more often. All kidding aside that is very rare to have lightning hit the same place that many times in one year. Is there a Tesla Coil near?
