Is the OTA antenna on the roof, or is it plugged into the outlet (amplified)? Maybe came in through your outside internet source, then over the ethernet? Either way, not much you can do to protect against a direct lightning strike.
Well hopefully some of your stuff is still under warranty. There's also insurance - although I'm sure you have a deductible. You can also tried filing a claim with the maker of your surge protector - I know the ones I have give up to $100,000 warranty. Not sure how successful anyone has been filing a claim with them. I believe they require you to ship them the surge protector, so they can inspect it internally for signs of surges. Most likely get denied if the surge occurred outside of it (through coax, ethernet, etc).
I wish you the best of luck, this was not fun dealing with. At least for the PS3 repair it was pretty painless. Paid $100, they sent me shipping box with postage/label included, and I got it back within a couple weeks. You may lose everything on it though as they may replace it with a refurb if they can't repair it.
This ended up being my final damage:
Epson Powerlite Home Cinema 8350 (Warranty replacement - within a few days)
Onkyo TX-NR609 (Warranty repair - almost 2 months)
Onkyo TX-SR607 (Warranty repair - almost 2 months)
Sony PS3 ($100 to repair - 2 weeks)
Hannspree HSG1102 (Warranty repair - 1 month)
OLEVIA 32" HDTV 232V (Bought Sceptre 32" LED HDTV - $220)
HTPC Motherboard GIGABYTE GA-Z68MA-D2H-B3 - (Store exchange - within 2 weeks of purchase)
Sony Subwoofer SA-WX700 (Purchased Polk Audio PSW505 - $230)
So ended up spending about $550 total, and alot of headache with warranty claims. Epson is definitely the best - had a new projector to me in a couple days, and then just stuck the broken one in the included box, shipping included. Onkyo repair sucks, taking nearly 2 months - will not buy from them again.

I've seen alot of posts regarding the topic, but very little in the way of associated costs. My list so far seems to be.
Integra 40.1 processor = $1000
Bluray player = $150
HDDVD player = $150
Projector = $2500
If I have to ship each item in for repair at an average rate of $150 x 5 = $750
