Not everyone wants to deal with OTA and buying AM21's for their HD receivers. Our market finally getting HD locals is a good thing.:)

Not to mention that DirecTV does a horrible job of managing the AM21 database. I had hope for the OTA addon with the AM21 but still cant receive the local FOX station in HD on the AM21 because "there's no capacity".

I only have 1 antenna and 1 AM21 and 2 HD Receivers. Would love to get HD on my upstairs receiver without having to do the 'country fix' and recording the show I want downstairs and watching it in the upstairs room...

I only have one antenna as well, you only need one antenna, you just need to distribute the antenna feed to your other HD receiver and pick up another AM21.

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.

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