Last night we had a nasty thunderstorm. Saw it coming so I shut entire system down. There was a bolt of lightening and a loud snap which sounded like it was inside the room near the TV, Sony 40XBR6 (You know--- the sound a loudpseaker makes when you fool with the connections with the amp on by mistake!) Power died at same time and was down for about 6 hours. When it came back I feared the worst: HTPC shot, TV shot, etc. etc. Turns out the PC is fine, the TV tunes channels fine, gets signal from the one component device I have, but the issue is this: TV is no longer sensing any HDMI signal from the DVD and PC which share a common cable to HDMI 1 input. Tried moving to HDMI 3, but no joy. Tried both of the devices independently, no joy. Recycled the TV's power by unplugging, no joy. Not easy to trouble shoot much more other than the back of the wall plates (will do tonight) as the cable is in wall and is about 25 feet as it has been for the past 2 years, all fine during that time. Anybody seen anything like this?
