So my 55" Samsung tv took a hit in the severe storm last night......it was plugged into a hearty surge protector but, apparently, that wasn't enough. I think my cable Internet connection took the shot so maybe it got hit through the Ethernet hookup (my router/modem are also toast.....everything else is fine). Anyway, my Samsung is now in the shop ( for extended warranty) and I am relegated to a 34" HD Sony. This blows and I may have to suffer like this for a few weeks. This is way more troublesome to me than Clutch's death.
