    I am thinking with all the man layoffs at ATT and Directv over the years, they now just have a small staff for coding a driver for the HS17, adding OTA guide data, and most importantly testing all this.
    Years ago they would Cutting edge release and test this in Months, now we could be looking at years.
    We are coming up on the One Year Mark so may have an other year? Hope not.
    I would even pay a LOT of money for good OTA guide data and a LCC.
    Maybe they should raise the price of the LCC and hire some contractors and get this done by June?
    I can only dream.

    I doubt they have people in the US doing the coding, so they probably weren't affected by layoffs. That would explain why there's such a long turnaround time between Directv acknowledging a problem and it getting fixed.

    You’d be amazed at how long some of the cutting edge hardware was in testing for before it hit the market. Amazed... it wasn’t always just a couple months under DIRECTV. ;)

    According to my friend its unknown if an LCC will work with an HR24 since their systems will not allow them to order a LCC for customers without a Genie. Their guidance specifically states it will only work with the H44, HR44 and HR54. The ordering systems prevents an agent from ordering an LCC for an eligible customer unless one of those three models are active on the account.

    At present only customers who are in a market where there is a dispute with a local affiliate can call in to order an LCC. If there is no dispute going on the ordering systems will have the option to order an LCC blocked for the agent.

    I would love to get my hand on an LCC personally just to experiment with my HR24 and retire my AM21 on my HR44 but my market has no disputes unfortunately and none are on eBay yet :(

    Directv has apparently let the CE testers know that they will be testing some H2/HR2x software soon. Since they are still updating the software for them there's at least a chance they might add drivers to support the LCC. Those never got the new GUI though so it could be just a few bug fixes and not anything new.

    ...and our family hopes they never get the new GUI, or remove Music & Photos, or the ability to play Pandora with TV channel on in the background unlike the Genie, etc....

    No, he's saying he and his family still prefer the old GUI running on the HR24s and the other older pre-Genie era receivers.

    So is hoping that the LCC, whenever released, will work on the HR24s.

    Status Update

    Someone on the ATT Directv forum who is listed as an emplyee posted this on April 12th
    So sad this roll out is taking so long. Dish has had their LCC version out for 3 years now. It even looks the same (same shape and size). We are at the One year mark since word of this started showing up on sites.

    "The LCC has been expanded to include more markets, and markets where DirecTv does not offer locals (these are far and few between). To find out if your market is covered call in @ 1.800.531.5000 to speak with an agent."

    This post would be even better if the additional markets were listed in it.
