I just setup my Comcast xfinity triple play. I have an HDTV (With HD DVR cable box), Analog TV (With digital cable box), Cable Modem (for digital phone and high speed internet).

I have one cable outlet in my apartment from cable company. This connects to a Tripp Lite Home Theater Surge Protector/Suppresor. Will this affect my high speed internet connection. Should I have the splitter before the powerbar and connect one to the modem and the other to the powerbar? What would be the best setup for me (splitters, amplifers)?

I would take the power bar out of the cable. The power par can cause issues with signal and distort your picture, and cause problems on the reverse path causing issues with your internet and vo-ip telephone. Your cable company is responsible for grounding your cable both at the pole, and at the house/apartment.
