Directv probably said they would remove from their guide and the am21's must have been included in that when they broke off business ties.


So now I think I will get upset... I was planning on just tuning the off-air channel on my am21 during the dispute. Are you telling me the AM21 tuner is not going to work if the A3 signal is no longer available on a transponder? ...because guide data (or no guide data) can disable the off-air signal on AM21?

Yep I am going to be upset. I can route my off-air signal directly to TV (very inconvenient) or I can just go to another provider.

Why wouldn't DTV just let our AM21 work as it does now? That would be to DTV's advantage. Still get the signal without caving in to Local TV.

Let them burn... ... let them all burn.... darn it.

It is possible any place they said this that it could occur that way and if it does go down that way for you it isn't by directv's choice either.

Blackout rules don't change just because Directv doesn't provide the channel. You will have to tune to that channel to view the games they carry.

This topic is to discuss the dispute between Local TV LLC and DirecTV. I already saw two separate topics come up.... before any more pop up, might as well centralize the discussion here in this central topic.

Are your locals affected?

Yep! CBS and CW but we use an AM21. No worries... :D

According to my local ABC station here in the Quad Cities, Davenport, Rock Island, Bettendorf... they've come to an agreement and the channel won't be going off-air.

I think your correct. I had a message on my on screen guide earlier today informing about carriage agreement/dispute, but now it is gone.

Same here. Earlier today there was a channel 31-1 called ALERT with the info, but it was since been removed. I was actually thinking that maybe the existence of a -1 channel was confusing the AM21's out there and preventing the OTA channel from being tuned.
