Hey, I'm planning to buy a Panasonic Plasma for my first TV, very soon. I want to do everything I can do protect it and make it last. I've already bought a Tripp Lite surge protector (SM's too expensive ATM) http://www.tripplite.com/en/products/model.cfm?txtSeriesID=829&txtModelID=4137 . This one comes with coax jacks. I've been been reading for hours trying to find out about coaxial surge protection. There is no doubt a surge can travel though the coax lines. I know a surge protector with built in coax jacks can sometimes degrade the signal. There is three ways that I know of that you can protect the coaxial lines from surges. 1. grounding at the box outside, by your cable company. 2. using the built in coax on surge protectors. 3. using an in-line surge protector; box - in-line protector - TV. Protection at the box outside isn't an option. I need to know if it's better using an in-line coax surge protector OR using the built in coax jacks on a surge protector. Which one will actually work against surges better??
