    Surge protectors

    Hi
    Do I need any sort of mains supply surge protection to go in at the same time as my freesat dish and receiver is installed ?
    If so what type do I need and where would I source it ?
    Many thanks
    Regards

    Re: Surge protectors

    Hi
    sometime surge protectors only do half a gob.
    sometimes for AV equipment (and LCD / plasma) is may be an idea to go for an Uninterruptible Power SUpply (UPS).
    It has a surge protector to help elimitate those spikes going to your equipment
    a battery backup which gives 10 or more minutes (depending whta you are using) of power from the battery should there be a power failure.

    There are a few around - Belkin do some.....
    Most electricaly / pc shops would do them..have even seen some in carrefour (Zaapa) which keeps my Sky+ going quite well....but have belkons on the PC's....
