    AT&T TV National Launch

    Well possibly so ... But the point remains that if AT&T TV is supposed to be like a "dish-less" DIRECTV service, then they're really going to have to step it up in the area of local station carriage (and for RSNs in markets like LA). Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Best Western 88 Room DRE setup

    Yeah .... Sorry to be such a dolt on this issue ... But it seems that it should be that as long as you have enough virtual channel slots among all the QAM RF carriers to carry every licensed SWiM channel you want to provide on your COM headend system. The number of connected TVs, from one to...

    Best Western 88 Room DRE setup

    But this sounds like you're saying each TV always stays tuned to only a single QAM RF channel frequency. Which would mean the specific DIRECTV channel that modulates the QAM channel can be changed by remote command from the Media Tune app. So that means there is only one DIRECTV channel carried...

    I thought a COM system is like a CATV system for distribution? Where there is no relation between the number of TVs and QAM channels. The TVs, regardless of their exact number, all share the same total group of QAM channels. And each individual QAM channel carries two or more DIRECTV channels...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    Whatever their policy on locals .... While I'm sure they'll add more later, AT&T TV is really going to have to step it up on locals carriage. Where in a major market like LA for instance, with 22 HD and 27 SD local channels on DIRECTV satellite. AT&T TV offers only eight channels in my zip...

    Seems to be a bad firmware release as another recently posted a similar problem with his AIM after the update too .... https://www.satelliteguys.us/xen/index.php?posts/4469013 Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Does the the Local Channel (LCC) connector work on HR24 receivers?

    Actually it's the "Manufacturer Code" ... [emoji6] -100 Technicolor (Thomson/Audiovox/RCA) -200 Samsung -300 Philips -400 Hughes -500 Humax -600 LG -700 Pace -800 NEC Your point is well taken though, but for brevity sake many just regularly leave it off since there should be no...

    Does the the Local Channel (LCC) connector work on HR24 receivers?

    It did??? Wow, when did you last test it out? As I couldn't get the HR24 I tested the new LCC on to even detect its presence no matter what ... Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    Does the the Local Channel (LCC) connector work on HR24 receivers?

    Yeah ... As slice says the LCC won't work at all on the HR24s ... As a test tried an LCC on one of my HR24s a number of months ago in every conceivable way, and the HR24 would never even detect it as there. ... Sent from my LG-H932 using Tapatalk

    Especially like the idea of color-coding the cables in these assemblies. Makes the inter-connections on the board much easier to follow even though there are many of them packed in a relatively small area ... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Best Western 88 Room DRE setup

    Yes, that and the current supply of H44 Genie Lites converted with four of its five tuners disabled have been allocated to the commercial non-DVR receiver inventory as well. A terribly wasteful end result for the Genie Lite in my view. But is what AT&T/DIRECTV ultimately dicided to do as...

    Best Western 88 Room DRE setup

    Or I guess the pertinent questions would be will all the boxes in the 88 rooms be HD receivers (H25s?), or some with DVRs (HR24s)? And as the resulting spaghetti mess of cabling in one of the photos shows. Why would that Hotel choose "Homerun" topology from the backbone instead of the much more...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    My point exactly .... AT&T/DIRECTV has seemingly been holding to the release of this product forever (in comparison to the old days at least). Only to finally release this half-baked product (according to the reviews here anyhow)? Sheesh, what a big dissappointment .... Sent from my LM-V405...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    Man ... compared with the old faster method of field testing and evaluation and the release of those glossy "First Look" documents. Where then DIRECTV used active subscribers. You would think the "far" slower pace when AT&T discontinued this practice and took all field trials in house and only...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    And "multiuser wise" for those with larger numbers of simultaneous users. Since AT&T TV with a max. of only three active streams is completely useless to those like me with six DVRs and a wireless Mini client. Though I am envious of there having no monthly receiver lease fees and an offer of...

    AT&T TV National Launch

    So there's no monthly lease fees on the streaming boxes, just a one time purchase of price of $120 each after the free first one? That whould be a good saving for those like me with a lot of receivers after the high upfront cost if true. But limited to only a maximum of 3 simultaneous streams...

    Signal Strength

    Also curious; Are the local channels DIRECTV assigns you from the Anchorage (tp. 5 on 99(s) ) or Juneau (tps. 21 and 22 on 99(s) ) market? Since I notice you have very strong signals at or near 100 on all three tps. supplying both markets on 99(s) ... Sent from my LM-V405 using Tapatalk

    Signal Strength

    I doubt it ... Or that it would work well if at all if they tried by coverting a C-band BUD or something. Since they'd really have to build a new LNBF for it as well. As the ones manufactured for DIRECTV have a fixed separation between the feedhorns (i.e., a "monoblock" arrangement) and can...

    No, there's actually a Reverse Band 99/101/103 SL-3 type LNBF made specifically for the 1.2m AK/HI dish that I was asking about. See the "SL3RBAH (AU4)" under the "North American Market" in the attachment from WNC. Looks just like the former one you have but has six outlets instead of four...
