I had the LNB supply voltage regulator blow a couple times from lightning. In this case it was easily repaired by replacing the regulator chip.
The dish was grounded at the dish with a ground rod, but this wasn’t good enough. Lightning damage incidents ended after installing a heavy ground conductor from the studio ground to the dish to keep both at the same potential.

Just curious: Have you [or anybody] ever had the front end of a satellite receiver blow up from lightning? Under what circumstances?

Other than Dawnco, where do you buy your in-line surge protectors for satellite receivers? I'm looking for a little box with (female) F connectors on each end.
Like everyone else on this list, I'm looking for "the most bang for the buck."
