Works for me :-)

Here are some more data points:

- using ota, one antenna with a splitter; not dependent on which
device is connected to which cable
- I tried looking for a pattern by swapping usb ports, antenna cables,
and just trying one device.  All appeared to get failures: only
device (sometimes), second or second device
- I wasn't seeing this on my old b202 eee box; ah, well
- as it is the machine, at 1gb, isn't exactly flush with memory; and a
1.6ghz 230 isn't blindingly fast :-)

let me know what else you need,
