    It is only the stations OWNED by Nexstar, not the ones operated by them, that went dark.

    OK. But that's the vast majority of the stations listed at that Wikipedia link I posted. Note the "owned since" column there. If it has a footnote number as opposed to an actual year, then it's only operated, but not actually owned, by Nexstar.

    I have two stations in Salt Lake City; the ABC and the CW
    My wife and I have zero shows that we watch on ABC; I watch Supernatural on the CW but they are out of season. I have HR24s so an LCC won't do me any good.

    Here in Western NY, we lost 2 NEXSTAR channels today, so I thought I'd chat to see if they'd send me an LCC.

    Sorry for a very basic question, but I've been reading this thread for quite a while and haven't seen if an LCC comes with an antenna?

    It does. You can use a larger one if you need to as well.

    The middle chips look like the MStar MSB1237 RF Demodulator. I found a reference to it in an ATSC teardown of a converter box as well as several vendor sites. Unfortunately, I can't find a datasheet of the chip.

    As long as your account has an active HR44 or an HR54 their ordering system will allow the rep to order an LCC for a customer in a disputed market.

    After searching online I found I this, this, and this so the short answer is no the AM21 will not work with Genie 2. I also found iamanedgecutter's pre-release testing Genie 2 PDF review via Google Search and even that says AM21 is not compatible.

    HS17 isn't Ota capable. Speculation that the firmware could be updated to allow the LCC, but unknown if that will happen or when.

    Yep, you're right, I did not even look under accessories but it is listed there on the old Directv site also. So I guess they are keeping track of how many they send out and to who.

    I'm in a disputed area. Rep originally had me go to locast. I had to convince the rep that the Springfield DMA is different than the Boston DMA. She ordered me an LCC, then when I called on Friday to get the tracking number, it was cancelled for some reason. The rep then reordered it. Hopefully it arrives today.

    What kind of box do u use ? Similar happened to me. But we determined LCC not compatible with genie 2 system

    And that's why order failed

    ATT almost certainly will not activate the HR54

    Had phone conversation with Dtv tech support. She stated that as long as the hr54 didn’t come from an disputed account, then they would activate it and I could return the 17. But time will tell .
