| DD mounting|
|My distribution device is in my unfinished basement. I read in the cabling guide that the DD should be mounted on plywood. I used plastic wall anchors to mount the DD directly onto the concrete walls. Anything wrong with doing that? Am I breaking any rules? |

Sorry it took so lonk to get back to you but we have had our helpdesk site spammed to the nth degree with bogus guestions.
There is nothing in the rules to say that you have mount it on plywood, it is recommended. The reason for this is two-fold. 1st by putting up a sheet of polywood it is easier to mount additional equipment in the future; second is that you basement wall may be cool and somewhat damp, the plywood would also act as barrier and insulation.
