In regards to the Broadcom 3510 based Air2PC r0.2 card still selling on 
ebay, it appears from the Broadcom product brief 
(http://www.broadcom.com/collateral/pb/3510-PB05-R.pdf ) that it should 
be able to handle demodulation of a QAM source.  Anyone know of any show 
stoppers that might prevent that from being realized? (Patrick?)
