    I'm on chat right now to get details on the LCC and inquire if I can get one for no charge and no contract extention. The reasoning is the threat of loosing CBS 3 Philadelphia on Sunday.

    From all the previous posts, 'the system' won't allow them to send you one unless you're in one of their market areas or in an area with a current outage. 'Threat' of losing the channels probably won't make any difference.

    Also genie 2 not supported and therefore they cannot order LCC

    Yeah they called me because chat could only go so far. I'm on the phone now, second time on hold on the phone and he has to go to "floor support" to find out why its giving him a hard time trying to order the LCC.

    So far I have $30 a month for 12 month discount, Chat also gave me $10 off I think a one time convenience discount. So this is a long process with no end result yet.

    Because you don't qualify for one yet.

    Yup, you are both right. Came back on the line from holding and said that if negotiations do fail and CBS 3 goes dark on 7/20, then the system will be updated and I will be able to get an LCC for free.

    The call wasn't a complete waste of time though. Just got an email confirming the $30 a month discount for the next 12 months. Rep confirmed no contract extension. It was the loyalty department on the other end of the line.

    I don't think anyone specifically answered this point: when a broadcast station may soon be pulled from DirecTV due to a contract dispute, DirecTV will usually add a temporary -1 satellite channel with an information screen. It's unrelated to the OTA version of the channel, it just happens to share a channel number.

    I got a LCC a couple of weeks before my market lost stations. No questions asked.

    Hi all,

    Got my LCC setup today but am experiencing a couple of problems:

    1) Deselecting channels in OTA setup is not hiding them in the guide. Is that normal?
    2) Most channels have duplicate entries, eg 11-1 twice, 11-2 twice, etc. Strangely, signal strength on each is different. Is this normal or should I re-run setup to clear the dups?

    Thanks,
    Mario

    I am in the Los Angeles area and I was able to order my LCC tonight. I'll be glad to free up some space in my cabinet by getting rid of my AM21.

    I got my LCC yesterday and installed it just now. Did two scans with it and its not picking up any of my locals, says my signal is too weak. Yet my TV’s tuner can get ALL of my locals with my rooftop OTA antenna.

    I guess the tuner chips in this thing suck. A lot of people are going to be unhappy with it. Good thing I didn’t pay for it.

    Anyone who has recently received an LCC can you please tell me what was the carrier in which they shipped the device. Was it FedEx and did they send you an email with the tracking info or was anyone able to call them back and receive the tracking number. I don't want to miss receiving my LCC because I am not at home the week they send the LCC.

    I was able to order my LCC today since CBS is out. Is there someplace on the ATT website where I should see the order? I have searched & searched and not found any place where it would be located. I did not receive an email with any order details.

    Never got a tracking number and it didn't show a confirmation on my account, but it did show up on my porch one day.

    Funny thing was that I was concerned and called D* that morning and they said that it would arrive that afternoon.

    I think it was by UPS.

    Are you using the supplied antenna or did you hook it up to your rooftop OTA antenna?

    Only issue I’ve had with two different LCCs is the audio skips and pops. If you hit rewind it corrects itself.
