    BTW, perhaps I missed it, but what model DIRECTV receiver do you have the AM21 connected to?

    I have the newer HR54 connected to the AM21. Working good.

    I know others have tried but even though both the Retention and Tech Support and Sales department all promised me a LCC if If switched from Dish to Directv, NO one could get me one, not even the all powerfull Retention department, confirming what many others if said, unless your TV market DMA is in a dispute the computer simply wont let em order it.
    I confirmed this again very high up since it was in writing on the work order that I would get a LCC to price match Dish. They all confirmed it was promised on the work order.

    I knew this would happen as I read it here first so I ordered a AM21 which works the same. Problem is I had to pay for the AM21, where the LCC was to be free.

    But in the settings is your edit OTA channel feature broken too?

    Mine is where the menu selection buttons normally displayed on the lower right of the screen have been missing for months now rendering the entire feature on my HR54+AM21 combo useless.

    Nothing but the "bonk" invalid entry sound for all button presses on the remote control except the left arrow key to back out of the screen altogether.

    On my HR54 I can scan for new and edit locals. I am not the normal national release of the software. I am cutting edge right now Beta.

    I had this happen on one of my HR44/AM21 boxes some time ago and was eventually able to solve it by first selecting the "Reset Settings" option under Over-the-Air Antenna Setup, disconnecting the AM21 USB cable from the HR44, doing a double soft restart of the HR44 (or you could simply do a "clearmybox" or "clearmybox 2" keyword search) with the USB cable still disconnected, confirmed that no antenna setup option was available under Settings and that no OTA data appeared in the guide, reconnecting the AM21 USB cable to the HR44, doing another soft restart, and then going through the regular Sat & Antenna setup procedure.

    More test data on the AM-21 OTA tuner as we all wait for the newer LCC. . . .
    I finally had a channel drop out that is 50 Miles away.
    I took a big Hail Storm between my house and the tower 50 miles away.
    I must say this tuner is really good for something this old the build date I think says year 2006 on it.

    My AM21 works great on my HR54-500. I wish scan would come back to the HR24 series DT-DVR's.

    On my HR54 when I do a new OTA set up it looks like it is scanning for new channels as NEW ONE do show in the guide that are not in their database yet. Some are brand new like the new 6.5 sub channel, it found it. Just dont have guide data yet as they have not added the Omaha DMA market or Lincoln NE yet.

    I am not sure what receiver I have, it is the genie with the phone input. Have lcc hooked up but receiver not happy will not acquire guide data, on hold with customer support. I did not take a picture it came in a box with an antenna and power supply. It is slightly larger than dish lcc. Will advise

    Your guide data issue is probably nothing to do with the LCC. It's a widely reported issue that apparently DirecTV is trying to fix.
