Power Protection for Home Theatre Setup

My Home theater setup includes, Plasma TV + Denon AVR + Dish HD DVR + DVD Player. I have power surge protector + extension cord combo feeding this beast.

Over the last few months, The DISH DVR needed to be replaced thrice and 2 DVD Players have stopped working. I think this is power related and am wondering how to protect my home theater setup before I buy the blu-ray player.

Any advice would be helpful?

Just fixed a friends setup.

They had stacked the equipment into some enclosure and it was cooking in there. Nothing would last past a year. After 3 years and 3 new everything they finally let me toss out the enclosure and we have an open shelving solution that lets it all run cooler.

You might consider a UPS. They can be pricy but a UPS gives better protection.
