    Well considering that probably a fraction of 1% of Directv subscribers have an AM21 connected to their Genie it is easy to understand why this was not a priority for them with the app. Once they introduce the LCC, and presumably start promoting it as a way to save money, they'll know (or be loudly told) they need to add OTA channel viewing to the app.

    What happened? Did you really get it or was it some kind of cable and the CSR was mistaken like the others?

    I've been anxiously awaiting to hear from danny myself to see if he somehow lucked-out and managed to slip through the system and actually get his hands on an LCC.

    Still waiting ...

    One thing about DIRECTV's ordering system: Even if a CSR doesn't know what they can or can't do, the computer system usually has it correct with what they ship.

    Same here. So will this new guide feature be supported by the AM-21? I see all my locals subchannels now...I had previously given up hope! But all they're saying for data is "Regular programming."

    They reintroduced scanning to the HR44 and HR54 with one of the latest updates. As for guide data, they're in the process of expanding it on a market by market basis with a cluster of new markets getting the expansion every month or so.

    The latest list that got the expansion can be found in this post:

    Uh huh. And you're located WHERE? If you're not located in one of their two test markets, ain't gonna happen, no matter what the clueless agent told ya. It would be wonderful to be proved wrong ..

    Well the fact we haven't heard back from him means he's been added to the list of people who called in for the LCC, got an overly helpful CSR who tried to force the system to order something it can't, and promised him he'd get something by the next day and got his hopes up. Most likely he either got an order cancellation notice in email or they sent him a power cord :)

    Where are the test area? I think Salt Lake (KSL) NBC. But I don't know the second and why? I am happy with my AM-21.

    Looks like no one has been about to get and post pictures of a working LCC, dont people get mad when they driver to the ATT store to pick up their order and all they got was a cable, would think they would at least post that to make fun of the CSRs :)
    Everyone else must be under a super strong NDA.
