Googling suggests that the Air2PC isn't a part of the 'antenna' but a 
normal dvb/ATSC tuner.  I had the impression from Ashu's post that it 
was a new part of his system and integrated into the 'antenna' package. 
Perhaps not.  OTA TV reception, especially with an indoor antenna, will 
always be critically dependent on local conditions - including the 
movements of people in the room.
