Well here is what was in the three rooms that got cooked:
Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8350
Sharp AQUOS LC-52D65U
HTPC (Motherboard with built-in HDMI: GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3)
2 x Motorola Comcast HDTV receivers
Motorola Comcast HDTV DVR receiver
Out of all those the only device which still has all it's working HDMI ports is the Sharp AQUOS
- all the other devices lost any HDMI ports it had. So I guess I know which brand I'll be purchasing for now on...
Wow, I'm sorry to hear this. I didn't know HDMI port was this vulnerable to lightning surges.
You so need lightning rods all over your roof.
Lightning once destroyed my mowing robot's PCB, its charging base PCB, the ADT water sensor, the main ADT keypad panel all in one shot. But laying down such lengthy low-voltage peripheral wires for my mowing robot is an invitation to lightning in the 1st place. Now I know better... Sorry I digress.
