    AM21 is a separate unit. Only the HR20 and H20 has OTA built in.

    As you can see, it's pretty thin. OTA coax goes in & an USB connects it.

    Thanks for the image. The AM-21 is what I thought it was and discribed. A seperate box with external connections. Not sure what the point is of the image? Were it maybe easy to use, its not a plug in module.

    Like I said, for those in the Palouse and the Tri City areas, OTA should work while this is being worked out.

    Not true in the Palouse area. I am over 80 miles from Spokane and can't get it on OTA. I beleive that is why D* turned on 399 for those people in the outer areas that can't receive OTA. Tri-Cities is right in the broadcast area for OTA.

    I'm in Moscow, ID (8 miles from Pullman, 90 miles from Spokane) and I've tried calling twice to get DNS and they said I'm not eligible and they cannot turn 399 on for me. I filled out an online waiver request on the 12th and it's still pending, and they said it can take up to 45 days. bleh.

    And since DIRECTV and Northwest are at a stalemate right now, the waiver is unlikely to be approved anyway.

    Hey at least folks can see the Superbowl .. Wonder if this means the stations are better off with the redistribution than without.

    Both the stations and DirecTV. Around here, DISH Network contract installers have been running TV and Radio spots with the theme, "Don't miss the big game....switch now!" A couple of my neighbors have done just that.

    I posted an earlier thread about not getting my FOX channel here in the Spokane Wa area. It was kind of a long post so I'm not going to go into it again. I missed the announcement from DirectTV that FOX was going to be put back up. Know why? Cause I was checking the DirectTV web site which showed the last update on this situation as having been posted on 01/14/11. I never would have thought to go to Facebook to get information. I am at work so I can't check to see if my local FOX28 is back up but I'm going to check as soon as I get home.

    Thanks for everyone, especially the super moderator who pinted me in this direction.

    Around here, there are people switching from Dish to DirecTV, because when their satellite got the "electrical issue" local HD channels were moved to a satellite a lot of customers can't see and Dish won't give them that equipment.

    I think DirecTV will gain more Dish subs than Dish gets DirecTVs, more affected by the Dish situation.

    "Electrical issue"??? I can just hear Charlie and Jim explaining that on the Chuck Chat, complete with the pained expressions on the faces in the peanut gallery!:lol:

    Anyway, Fox 28 Spokane is back up on DirecTV. I'll bet Northwest's local Superbowl advertisers had something to do with this.;)

    According to this letter from the head honcho at Northwest, they want 60 cents per sub per month. Probably something like 40 cents more than everybody else.

    Edit: Make that 90 cents per sub per month.
