as far as surge protection...dont get the $5 surge protector from walmart....buy a monster, panamax, belkin (pure av series) or apc (home theater lineup) and make sure it has coax and ethernet inputs since electricity can "surge" from those cables just as much as your power socket. With HDMI, honestly monster is great, AS LONG AS YOU GET THEM ONLINE.....they are a ripoff in stores, online such as amazon they are heavily discounted...ergo good deal, but at BB or Office max they are a rip off.
