During the tail end of tropical storm Beryl we had almost 8 straight hours of violent storms. One lightning strike was like close...very close. Lost power right after the strike for a few hours. That day I had no signal on my tv, discovered I had lost HDMI 1 port. All items in surge protector except power inserter for deca, and a collar on the electric meter. Directv's dish is grounded to specifications also. Where did the surge come from? Looks as Directv is going to pay for my tv's mainboard replacement and they have been very good to me through the damage claims process. I do only have the standard protection plan and insist the surge came through their receiver. The HR'24 is ok at this time.
