@ExDilbert , here's a list of my components that are all in the same area. Plasma tv , bell pvr reciever , sling box , PS4 , router , Yamaha Reciever . I'm wondering if you could recommend a product I could benefit from . It doesn't have to be UPS if I don't need it . Thanks

It's always a good idea to have a PVR on a UPS (Battery side), so you could purchase a small UPS to cover the power draw for it and one with enough outlets to handle all the other stuff, plugging the high power draw equipment like the TV and AVR into the "surge" side and the PVR, Router, Sling into the battery side.

For example: UPSforLESS Power Backup Experts | APC BackUPS BE550G UPS NEW

That's probably as low as I would go, so you can always get more capacity and spend more.

I use this. It may be discontinued. It seems to have been replaced by this and this. The USB charging ports on the one may be useful for smaller USB powered components. The TV and AV receiver are on the surge only side. Everything else is on the battery backup side.

It's a good idea to choose a model with enough outlets without using any power taps or bars. Never plug a UPS into another UPS or power bar and never plug a surge protected power bar into a UPS. Strange things can happen.

That looks like a good choice.
