Now was wondering if anyone here has tried claiming on these connected equipment warranty and if so is it worth the hassle? Or should I just bite the bullet and claim through my insurance company?
linw: Pretty brave, or stupid, offering a lightning strike insurance. Weasel words hidden there somewhere?
Aredwood: Give all of the surge protector details to the insurance company. They might try to claim back their costs from DSE.

SepticSceptic: Did you also connect the TV/Sat coax thru the surge protector ? Or the ADSL line ? Lightning power spikes can have multiple entry paths.

Forgive me for stating the obvious, but most surge protectors only work once, with "sacrificial" components which cannot be replaced.
You need to replace your surge protector.
