Thanks for the quick response.  Another reader Olivier suggested that I plug in both antennas since the Windows drivers were probably using diversity or something on the main receiver.

I attached one of the mini-antennas to the side connector and it seems
to have picked up a few channels.  I have ordered a splitter/amplifier
so I will try it again in a couple of days with two full-sized coax
coming from my main antenna feed.  I was able to capture TV, but it
came out a little broken due to the bad reception I think.
