Is this really necessary to surge protect the coax from the wall to the cable or DSS receiver?
If the dish is grounded (as it should be) that is all you need. However, an outboard protector can’t hurt—just make sure it doesn’t degrade the picture.
Honestly, though, I don’t think any surge protector will help against a direct lightning hit.

It can't hurt! There are some threads in the past 4 days in which the Tripp Lite 6 DBS unit got the most raves, with one poster's experience that picture signal did not degrade in the least.
I run my cabletv cable thru my surge protector with the same result (no changes).
