    What is the pattern to getting one? Pattern for approved Cities so others will know

    Used to be only cities with a dispute going on but then some got a LCC even when no local dispute.
    Is it now maybe the city also has to have all the otA guide data updated first with all the new sub channels?
    Ideas?

    I don't think there is a pattern. They updated the database in my market a while ago and I got all the sub channels on my HR20's. Even then when I called, I was told I could not have one. As soon as a dispute with Fox and the CW resulted in them being removed, they sent me one without any resistance. After they verified that my OTA signals were strong enough to receive just those two channels though.

    I tried thinking it was the OTA data being updated, but it was a no go for me.

    Reports of people getting them who live in an area without a dispute must be the result of one of these things:

    1) They live in a disputed area according to the big computer in the sky so the order doesn't get cancelled
    2) The sub doesn't know they live in a disputed area, so they say they don't here
    3) They live in a test area and don't know they do so they don't report that here
    4) Somehow they get lucky with a higher level CSR that can override the system
    5) They pay $125 on Ebay

    What would that provide?

    You got someone to plug one into their computer to get that data. What does that tell us?

    I called again today and this time I was successful in ordering an LCC. Our local Fox affiliate (KFXA) here in Eastern Iowa (Cedar Rapids DMA) has been out for about a month due to a dispute and when I called a couple of weeks ago, it was not available in my area. Today, they had me go to a web site (signalstrength.directv.com) and verify my signal strength was adequate. I live pretty close to the towers so I was all green.

    She told me it should be here in 2-4 business days.

    Interesting that they have a web site to qualify people - probably linked to tvfool or similar. I tried it at home where I know reception would be a problem since I'm in a low area (I don't have Directv there since I have huge oak trees in my yard) and it correctly showed the signal would be weak on several of my locals.

    My LCC when watching over the air. The audio skips and pops. Revert back to the AM21 and it’s normal.

    Well, y'all can thank me soon. I'm sure that because I just bought an AM-21 on Ebay ($43 including shipping) they'll release the LCC any day now.

    :eek:

    There's a sub-channel in our market with a couple of shows we'd like to tape once in a while - just couldn't wait any longer.

    Hi All
    I have had my LCC for awhile and it has worked just fine. I have a good outdoor ant. and the LCC picks up the same amount of channels as the TV when the TV is hooked to the outdoor ant. Its a set and forget item. You don't see it, its tucked in behind the TV. Use and enjoy.

    Wow, the prices have really dropped. After the AM21 was discontinued and people were paying insane prices for them on eBay, I sold them all for $150/ea plus sold off all but one of my H24s, then bought more H20s to replace them at an average price of about $30/ea :)
