    Agree
    hey should just sell it on their web site like DIsh does for $30, would make money instead giving em away for free to just a few TV markets. Also I dont need their cheap antenna either, maybe sell if for $20 or better yet sell em on Amazon so I get 2nd day delivery right now please :)
    I thought ATT liked to make money.

    Non starter until it works on more than just the HR44 & HR54. It would cost them in their 'support' department. Can you imagine the phone calls?

    They could have it check the equipment on your account, and if you have an HR44/HR54 say "this device will only work on your Genie DVR" and if you don't say "this device currently isn't compatible with your equipment".

    Though I agree if they want to make this really useful they need to put the driver in the H2x/HR2x and HS17 firmware image.

    Thats how Dish does it, cant order it unless model is supported listed on your account.
    For Amazon just but in big letters only works with HR44 and HR54 genie and how to check what model you have on the Info screen under settings.

    Well, I did receive the LCC overnight. Setup was a breeze. The only problem is it is not showing my local ABC. I have a really good antenna and have no problem receiving it on my TV. Not a big deal at the moment because that is not the channel in dispute. But I would like to set up recordings using OTA to help with rain fade. Something I miss with my HR20s

    <edit> I just ran the setup again, and I was then missing CBS too. Ran it one more time and now have ABC but no NBC or CBS. Ugh. BTW, ABC has 100% on the signal meter, so not sure why it was not found the first time or why the others are now gone (that were 100%).

    Does it actually do a channel scan or just use the channels it sees in the database?

    <edit 2> Rebooted the DVR (HR54-700) and did the setup one more time. Now all channels are there. Go figure.

    Is there any chance to connect it to your PC and pull VID/PID info ?

    It's sort of buried behind everything and I don;t really want to pull it back out. And unless my Win 7 laptop already has some sort of drivers, it probably won't do anything.

    Nope, nothing required - I did described the process...
    OK, I'll do it again, only for you, because it "buried" :p

    1. Press Win+X
    2. Select Device Manager
    3. Find a branch in a tree Other Devices (with yellow triangle) or USB Controllers (at bottom of a tree)
    4. Double click on it [Properties]
    5. Click on a tab "Details"
    6. Select in Property line "Hardware IDs"
    7. Do right button mouse click on a value -> Copy
    8. Paste it here (it should looks like "USB\VID_0BDA&PID_2838&REV_0100&MI_00")

    Congrat ! You did that first. Done !

    I was planning on doing that for sure, but my order was cancelled. Though it was 50/50 I'd get one after speaking to two people who insisted I would. Oh well.

    What I meant was the LCC was buried behind my AV equipment. But, I went ahead and did it.

    It shows up under "Other Devices" USB ATSC Device.

    Perfect ! Thanks ! You are the first in DTV fiorum here ! I'll make a special engraved medal for you! Soon … :)

    Now back to Search … if I could find same info for dish OTA adapters … to compare ...

    So, EB1A is eMPIA Technology, Inc. ID
    Rest of info we could pull, if one brave soul could gently open a cover of the LCC and reveal model of each major chip on its PCB ...
