    I did receive my LCC via FedEx in only one day after ordering it. Setup was a snap and I was up and running quickly. I am close enough to the broadcast towers where I live that an indoor antenna works good for me so I used the one that that was connected to the AM-21. Works great and have had no issues. I have a buddy that lives in Cedar Rapids that ordered on after I told him I got mine so at least here in Eastern Iowa it seems they will ship them to you due to the retransmission fight with the local Fox station.

    If the LCC is hooked up to the HR54, are you limited to viewing locals only on the Genie, or are you also able to view live local programming from the LCC on the 4K client (C61K) as well?

    After scanning for channels does the program guide continue to list the normally provided Directv designated local channel, (ie. Channel 9) as well as ALL of the affiliates subchannels (is. 9-1, 9-2, 9-3, etc,)?

    Yes, you can watch locals on the mini since it is actually using a tuner on the HR54 and is just relaying it to the min and Yes, you get sub channels as well. With that said, depending on the database, you may or may not get all the current sub channels available. I have a few missing via the dongle that I get if I scan directly from my TV.

    My local [Syracuse] PBS station [WCNY] and three subchannels are missing from the LCC list. Is there a way to manually add subchannels?

    My original post included another channel but it has since been added. I reran the antenna setup and was surprised to see the missing channels for WSPX in the list. Maybe the LCC list is a work in progress.

    i have had my lcc for about 3 weeks, when watching local channels the audio is popping and a skip every few seconds.
    my am21 does not do this. Ive contacted Directv and they are sending me another LCC so hope this one does not do this.

    I know! I had about 6 extra brand new AM2x's from DirecTV, listed a few on eBay a couple years ago with no reserve, at like a $10 starting bid for a 10 day listing. The highest sale I had went for $306.00 to a guy in Florida. The others went for $200-$250. That supply/demand thing I learned in Economics in High School in the 80's paid off dividends! :tearsofjoy:

    I just did buy it now at a little less than the higher prices I'd seen, and offered a deal on shipping if they ordered more than one. I was able to sell them all in just two orders. I'm lazy and didn't want to ship them to seven different places :)

    You have been lucky not to ever have experienced this with the AM21 over the years. Long standing known issues. Typically on 1080i stations, rarely on 720p or 480i subchannels. It can start 10 mins after watching a show or an hour. Audio pops and skips have been a long standing issue for past 2 years with AM21's. Also video frame drop during fast action (like long pass of a football on TV) is another known issue along with audio problems. Known solutions to both: a) record the show, no pops or skips on playback or b) press pause, wait 1 second and press play and audio will be fine.

    Let us know how the second LCC performs.
    If you still think the first one has a problem, I will gladly take it off your hands. Confident we can work out costs via PM.
    Good luck.

    My LCC sometimes has a "clipping" sound and that could be corrected by hitting "pause" on the remote for a second or two. the clip would be gone when I resumed, this gives a slight delay. I think it's a buffer problem.

    Those of you who got a LCC through the chat how which option did you select? Technical support? We lost our CBS and another local station to a dispute this morning.

    My understanding is 'No' on the HS17. 'Yes' on the HR44 & HR54.

    Look for my posts in this thread starting at #402. I detail a phone call and a chat session. Although I didn't get one because there aren't any stations in dispute where I live, the info in those posts should help you.

    Thanks. I had scrolled back but not quite far enough. I just did two chats with DirecTV in the last hour. The first guy knew what the LCC was, but couldn't order it and said he had put in a request to a "dedicated team" who would call me back. I waited about 20 minutes and did another chat. This time the guy knew what it was, and said he could order it for me, but there would be a charge so he wanted to transfer me to a loyalty team to get it ordered without a charge. He transferred me in the chat to another agent who seemed to know what the LCC was, and said she had ordered and sent me one that I would receive in 2-4 days. She gave me a confirmation #, but I didn't get any kind of order e-mail or anything. My account has been "migrated" to the new AT&T site which is pretty much useless, so I have no way of seeing anything on there. All three people were able to identify that our area was in a dispute, but none of them asked any questions to "qualify" my address or anything. I guess I will see what happens in 2-4 days?

    I got my first one from just calling in and asking for one. No disputes of locals in my area.

    I had some audio popping and jumpy vid so got on chat and ask if could be replaced. They sent me another one. This one does the same thing. if you hit the jump back button the audio and vid problem goes away, maybe will be fixed in the future.

    In a lot of markets today stations were lost owned by NEXSTAR. So people can prob call in and get a LCC now.

    Yep we’re in a Nexstar area. Based on their press release it implies no negotiations will occur until the 12th so we could be in for the long haul

    Log into your ATT account. At the top left, near the Death Star logo, click 'Shop and support'. 'Check order status' is near the bottom of the list you will see there. (This is how it looks on my desk top PC.)

    During my conversations with them, they always put me on hold to check OTA 'signal strength' in my area.
