    I have both a genie and HR24 along with an H24. I installed it on the genie but we would like locals on all TVs. Is there any way to distribute the signal to all our TVs?

    No. You need a LCC for all but it won’t work since the LCC is only supported on the HR44/54

    If you record programming on the locals on the Genie, the recording can be played on the other two. You just can't watch OTA live on those two or record OTA on the HR24.

    You could use a splitter and run additional coax to connect your antenna to the TVs the HR24 & H24 are using to be able to watch live OTA in those locations. The only solution to record OTA on the HR24 is to buy an AM21 off eBay.

    If you upgrade to an HR54 with Genies then you can see live TV and recorded over the air shows on an box.

    Thanks all. We ended up switching locations of our Genie and the HR24 (we moved Genie upstairs and HR24 downstairs), and I connected the LCC to the Genie upstairs now and we get great OTA - but I was hoping to distribute the signal back downstairs to the HR24.

    I also have a H24 in a spare bedroom. Could I move the HR24 in there and then replace the H24 (not the HR24) with a mini client and see the OTA from the Genie that way?

    Yes if you use a client you will be able to watch live or recorded OTA via the Genie.

    I really wish that my LCC worked for the THR22, which is essentially the HR22 with a Tivo UI, sans whole home. :/ But alas, the LCC working on the HR44 genie and mini's with live tv is a pretty neat feature.
