<snip stuff about OTA reception degradation>

Turns out that I had something seriously wrong with my grounding on my  
antenna wire.  When I put a multimeter between the screw terminals on  
the antenna and the case of my backend/frontend computer, I got 38  
volts.  Woo hoo, that was exciting!

I grounded the antenna and things are much better, though not as  
perfect as it used to be.  I'm thinking I've got some kind of minor  
ground fault going on inside my signal amplifier.

I'll go spelunking the internet for a forum or mailing list that deals  
with proper antenna cabling but it'd be interested to hear how the  
MythTV community deals with a fair number of OTA receivers, like where  
to place amplifiers, if any, what splitters work best, etc.  If  
anybody has any advice, I'm all ears.
