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.
