Its on amazon and it should be a box when you view the item or at check out. Just like selecting a coupon normally. You wont see the 20% off if you had purchased something from that department before. I had my wife use her amazon login and she saw the 20% off coupon. Its dirt cheap price for a decent receiver.

Thanks Lemonslush! My old receiver just died so this is excellent timing. Mine should be here tomorrow.

The receiver arrived yesterday and have just done basic connections and the quick ypao setup. Sounds great!

Thanks again for the pointer.

HDMI is especially sensitive to this - although I hope current design have improved hardiness.
Any solution to this lightening , like ground-ing etc?

I’m sure a good electrician can fit a suppressor on the breaker panel to address those issues.

Edit: What you are looking for is called a whole house surge suppressor.

Just had a whole house surge protector installed in my home yesterday. Cost of the unit was $168 on Amazon and $225 to install. The one I used (Leviton 51120-1 Panel Protector, 120/240-Volt) is a commercial grade unit and very good per my electrician. It needs to be installed on one of the first two spots in your main electrical panel to be effective. Additionally, make sure you put all sensitive electronics on a surge device at the plug as well. And don't forget to have a surge device for your phone and cable. I have that covered with a device installed where my cable line comes into the home with the cable going through the surge device before going to the cable modem. Phone line is also routed through the surge device as well.

I applaud the use of surge devices but they will do nothing for lightning, especially if you've got low voltage connections between devices like a phone line or network or coax or HDMI distribution. I know this from 1st hand experience.

I agree, as lightning hit a tree 30+ feet from my house (Florida) and fried all network connections devices, $5,000 of damage.

My ground strike across the street about 100 or more yards away was around $50K.

That does suck, the funny part of my strike is everything worked but only on Wifi.

I made a decision to install a whole house device for the first time after lightning hit my home when I was living in Florida. It caused extensive damage to wiring, appliances, alarm, phones and electrical devices in my home. The second time I got hit, the damage was minimal. I've also been around of lightning events in my work where a whole house surge device was fried plus ever electrical device in the home. It can be a roll of the dice.

The only way to ensure 100% protection against surges caused by lightning is to unplug your electrical devices before a storm hits. But who does that? And who does that every time? There's a reason The National Electric Code recommends surge protectors. They recommend surge devices because they work. Not all the time of course. But you increase your odds to have less damage with their use. They also recommend a three layered approached: 1) Surge device at the meter, 2) a whole house surge device in the electrical panel and 3) surge protection devices at the electrical plugs. Whether you follow their advice is your choice. But they are an organization knows more about this subject than some of the keyboard warriors on this forum.
