Question about Electrical Supplies
Sounds like you wired it in wrong.
US domestic power supplies work on a 220V ac system, centre tapped to provide a neutral and two lives which are both 110V ac relative to the neutral, but in antiphase to one another.
Sounds like you connected one of the generator's live lines to the neutral in your wiring system. It's safe to assume that your electronics actually fried within the first second or two.
Bodging a generator into a domestic wiring system can have worse consequences than this. Unless you really understand what you are doing, and also know the local regulations, it's generally better to run an extension lead to the appliances you want to power and leave the rest of the system dead.
