    Right now, I have an HR44 and an HR24.

    I want to upgrade the HR44 to an HR 54 so that I can have 4K capability, and I know that, to get that 4K capability, the HR 54 will need to be connected to a TV other than the 4K capability TV.

    But my question is, can I keep the HR24 and use it as a client with the 4K capable TV, or will I need a mini with the 4K capable TV to be able to receive 4K programming on that TV?

    Thanks.

    No.
    Only the C61K can send 4k to a TV at this point in time.

    Thanks much for the replies and information.

    One more question. If I get the HR54, am I correct in saying that it will be compatible with my AM21 off-air tuner to allow me to get the local sub-channels from the off-air antenna? Am I also correct in saying that a Genie 2 would not be compatible with the AM21?

    Thanks

    I can't answer those questions.
    Someone else will in a little while.

    Call CSR and ask for LCC; the AM is too old
    LCC

    The LCC is not yet generally available.
    My AM21 works fine with the HR54

    Thanks much for the additional information.

    Up to now, the AM21 has worked fine with both my HR44 and HR24,

    Do we know, at this point, what DIRECTV is charging for the LCC?
