DirecTV's HD Locals list finally shows Lansing for 2012 now... I was finally about to dish out the cash for an antenna.

I would if it didn't involve running more coax outside, then drilling holes in the wall or roof. I just hope we get the HD locals before NFL starts back up.

I had actually attempted to post the link but didn't have enough posts to do so. In fact, I can't even quote your link...

In a recent conversation with a Multiband manager (while an upgrade was being performed), he stated they now had an actual "date" which if I remember correctly was Sept 13th. He said they never had that before when Lansing was originally on the list.

So, we shall see. One can only hope.

Excellent. Appreciate it. My parents still live in the Lansing DMA and may be finally getting an HDTV and HD service soon so HD locals are a must for them.


Since they live in the Lansing DM, there is a good chance they could get the channels with a simple antenna as well...exactly the way I have been receiving the Lansing locals in HD for the last 6 years and I'm about 30ish miles from the transmission towers.

Can't come soon enough. Not getting HD Locals on 2 of my 3 receivers just sucks. I can't wait to get rid of the AM21 and antenna altogether.

I realize certain posters are OTA loyalists but I am tired of dealing with it.

Eureka and Mefdorth OR HD LIL's in *TEST this week so they are slowly working on adding new MKT's. Lansing will come.

Why aren't you getting HD locals on your other 2 receivers? Hopefully you'll be ok with the lower PQ.

Because I don't want to buy an AM21 for each receiver. As far as the PQ goes I will just bow to your superior discerning eye and expertise on the matter.

Is it possible for anyone to post in this thread without you trying to disparage them for wanting HD locals? Give it a rest.

When I signed up for D* nearly 5 years ago I was told that we'd have HD locals "very soon." LOL

The Lansing market stinks. The thing that gets me the most worked up is that I live within spitting distance of the county line and could get Grand Rapids locals, which have been HD for a long time.
