Sorry to hear man. Did you have your coax cables going through the Panamax as well? Is the plug properly grounded? If every component and incoming A/V cable was running through the Panamax, it should have been the only thing to smoke. My friend had everything but his coax running through surge protection and that was all it took for everything to get fried.
