    A storm was blowing through and I was watching a dvd. Lightning struck and I heard a loud pop and everything shut off. It even popped a breaker in the garage. Upon turning everything back on the receiver, blu-ray player, and the cable box will not turn on. The TV will turn on but makes a loud popping sound before it does and the HDMI ports do not work as the cable box and the blu-ray were connected via hdmi. I grabbed another blu-ray player from upstairs and tried hooking it up. The tv will see the that something is plugged into the hdmi port but shows no picture or sound. If I plug it up using cables you get picture and sound. Any suggestions? TIA

    What does this have to do with satellite TV?

    So three out of four items are blown out completely.
    The TV is blown as well since it was connected to the others, the HDMI receiver in the TV is blown and needs replaced.
    I suggest when you replace everything you put some surge protection.
