    Yes, just like the AM21, which I have a bunch of. No mobile remote recording, nor on DirecTV/ATT.com.

    I can't even do remote recording for 4K channels 104 and 106, I can only record from the receiver/client.

    And KyL416, it looks like channel 578 was just dropped according to my neighbor, after a conversation tonight. I referred them to DirecTV two years ago. Do you have any news on that (probably best in the appropriate thread.....)?

    Any chance they have a reverse band LNB and do they still get it on channel 586? It looks like they added the missing 99cr mirror on 578 today which might have caused the 119 version to vanish for them. A reboot should clear it up, although if they're using a custom list they might have to readd it.

    Should we read that as LCC channels will not be available via clients?
    Or will the LCC work directly on a physical client?
    (Or are we still in the great unknown?)

    No. The AM21 works the same. No streaming, but available to clients.

    That is good ... and opens the door for a LCC to (eventually) work with a HS-17 and be available to clients. DIRECTV has accepted the concept! :)

    So, this morning I did a search for MeTV and ThisTV on my Genie client. Each search result was similar, in that they pointed to sub channels in my location (Boston). They pointed to WCVBDTV5-2 and WHDHDTV7-2 respectively. When I selected each, I was given an error screen with some instructions to check my antenna orientation and connections to my LCC.

    Not having an LCC, or knowing what it was, I did a Google search and wound up here.

    That will be a waste of time. First phone call will be to a clueless CSR who will either not know about the LCC and put him on hold to check, or another clueless CSR who will try and order a LCC, but won't be able to. They will then create a BS answer why they can't order it, or point the caller to the AT&T website to order it on their Accesories page. But it isn't on the Accessories page.

    By the time it is over, no LCC will be on order because Boston isn't in the Release area and the Caller will be the only one who knows that.

    Yup - hence the reason for my reply to Mr. Smith. I believe he was being a little facetious ;) in his response to me...

    It was good to see the search results, however. Some progress anyway.

    OK, these are probably stupid questions, but I need to get a few things clear in my mind. I have 2 Hr24-200s. Now I live in the Salt Lake Viewing area so I could get an LCC due to the dispute with NBC. If I did, would an LCC work with that setup? If not, If I could find an AM21 are those still workable? If I did get an LLC, I probably wouldn't cancel my locals. I assume that this an option, correct? Right now, my wife is watching her favorite show on nbc.com but would much rather watch it via the DVR.

    There is no confirmation that the LCC works with any receivers other than the HR44 and HR54 Genies.

    Earlier in this thread a poster "Jodean" attempted to connect an LCC to a deactivated HR24 as a test. But the receiver wouldn't even allow the test unless he first activated the receiver, which he didn't want to bother with.

    So bottom line, no one knows for sure if the new LCC will work with the HR24 or any of the older generation DIRECTV receivers.

    And yes AM21s are still available on e-bay or personal sale on forums at substantially lower prices now that the news of the forthcoming LCC became widely circulated.

    I wouldn't say that... thought if you got the message about LCC then DTV would give you it...who knows when they will change rule

    Do the AM21s still scan and work with an HR24. Don't want to buy one and find out that it doesn't show the main locals in my area (don't care about the sub channels). Also, is the consensus that the LCC may someday work with HR24s.

    Yes, the AM21s still work with the HR24s ...

    However the HR24s will at times manifest a nasty bug that DIRECTV never fixed (and nor will they at this point) where they will suddenly and at random stop detecting the AM21. And then act as though it is no longer connected, when it is of course.

    When this happens it will usually be a real b***ch to get it to recognize the attachment of the AM21 again.

    My brother's HR24 is doing this right now. And even after days of all manner of OTA channel resets and reboots. It still won't detect the AM21 any longer.

    And from what I observe the consensus is the new LCC will not work with the HR24 or other older generation boxes as part-and-parcel of DIRECTV's wish to encourage all subs. to move to Genie server-client installations by designing most all new features and equipment for those.

    Called them at 11am my time - it's currently 1:03pm - on hold to talk to the 6th person I will be transferred to. :eek:

    I have time today, so I'm going to stick it out. The last person (5th one) tried to walk me through checking my antenna and LCC connections, even after I told her the same story I posted here the other day. :dizzy:

    There's no "consensus" about whether they will work with the H2x/HR2x line since it would be pure guesswork. There are more reasons to believe they won't than to believe they will, but we'll have to wait for when it is officially announced to know.

    No offense, but you're wasting your time, they are not available yet in your area.
