Slice, How can I give ATT credit for anything when all I see lately are service reductions, eliminations, off shore call centers and other changes that for decades were no problem for DirecTV pre ATT? My optimistic side wants me to believe that these are all "growing pains" due to the ATT transition and why would ATT do anything to destroy a profitable and widely liked company. But given all the issues we alone have seen in the past year or so since ATT took over, and I won't waste my time regurgitating here, my pessimistic side tends to win out and says there is a bigger picture here than simply another "dispute". Time will tell. And as for the LCC, correct me if I am wrong but from everything I have read about it, it's really nothing more than an AM21 in a new suit that is in reality another companies technology and all ATT did was create proprietary drivers for it so it would work with "some" of the current DVR's. It may be smaller and possibly have slightly more sensitive tuners in it but it still has a 2 tuner limit, puts off a lot of heat, requires more wiring and an antenna that is capable of receiving strong enough signals. And with digital signals now not able to penetrate many homes outer exteriors very well, the antenna they send with the LCC isn't going to work for many that can't place it in an optimal position such as a window or outer wall facing the broadcast towers and many got rid of their rooftop antennas long ago. So forgive me if I don't consider the LCC a true "step forward" and something to applaud ATT for and if it is truly considered by ATT to be a new weapon to strong arm local station owners to accept whatever ATT dictates to carry their signals going forward instead of simply an option for some, this is only going to get worse.
