Can you tell us how the rg6 arced on the lamp base, what contacted what?

Was 120 volts introduced into the rg6 from the lamp?

The first thing I would try is to swap the 2 wires on the LNB and see if the problem follows the recievers or the lnb output.

Yes, Thanks Gord, The actual wire arched twice by accident on this ancient floor lamp. No 120V was not introduced, and
yes, I have proved to the LNB, I had swapped out the 2 receivers, 4100/2700.
