The bad news is: I was wrong, the storage2 dropped out, so I powered down
and switched power and sata cables with storage3 (previous test was with
storage1) The good news is: since storage3 dropped out this time it is
almost certain that the mobo is at fault. The bad news is the mobo I
ordered is, apparently adrift in the Pacific somewhere. The good news is:
its Christmas time and friends and family aplenty will replace my need for
reliable Mythtv, for now, as I wait. Many thanks to everyone on this list,
and I wish you all a splendid season of Joy and Good Cheer!  Daryl
