Today we had lightning strike down right next to our house which cause an electrical surge in the house. We lost two tv's from it and one Xfinity box. I have tried our other boxes in the cable connections where the tv's blew, and it seems like we are not getting a signal from those cable connections. My guess is that the electrical surge has fried some of the cable wiring. Anyone run into anything like this before?
btw, junior sharpie 21 , if you have homeowners or renters insurance it may cover the cost of any equipment that got fried, minus any deductible. comcast's insurance policy is probably not so generous - they will have to eat the cost of their fried settop boxes!
