Thanks for following up on this.  I picked up a hub today to try for

For a first test, I simply inserted the hub into the equation at the
back of the computer -- two USB cables (one for each HD-PVR) run from
the A/V stand to the hub and another runs from the hub to the computer
back panel.  While this was less flaky than running the HD-PVR cables
straight into the computer back panel, it would still flake out soon

I'm going to try other cabling combinations tomorrow to see if I can
figure out what's going on.  At this point, I think the leasting cause
is that my system is just cursed! :)
