    I checked the AirTV adapter this morning after it had been attached all night. It was definitely less warm to the touch than the Dish adapter.

    A little bit of revisionist history there. (In other words, "Why do you always feel the need to over-simplify things?" :D ) At the time locals were separated out, the locals were only $10, and the packages went down by $5. The increase to $12 for the locals came later. Also, at the time of the $5 increase when the $10 locals were broken out, people with regular packages were not immediately allowed to drop the locals. Only Flex Pack subscribers could drop the locals, and of course they were not affected by that price increase. The ability for regular package subscribers to drop locals came later, but before the locals increased to $12. And now you know the rest of the story.

    So other than cosmetic differences, do we think the new Lark tuner is identical to the AirTV tuner?

    Seems like it. Sounds like it's been confirmed to work with the H3 and HWS.

    Yes.

    In addition I am told (but have not tested) that it works on the Wally.

    Thanks, Scott. I purchased one just now. When it arrives I will confirm (or disconfirm) compatibility with Wally.

    I, too, appreciate how much money this forum saves me.

    Now that Voyager has confirmed compatibility with the HWS I will run tests but report back only if I see an otherwise unreported issue.

    Probably so since I just bought two of them to see if they work better than DISH dual tuner.

    Air TV is probably scratching their heads as to why there's a sudden explosion of dual tuner orders

    Went to a customer today that had a Lark adapter and was watching OTA channel when I arrived. I asked her about issues with signal loss, pixelation or recordings and she said none so far. I grabbed the adapter and it was barely luke warm

    Yea, I've got one here and can report that it's been trouble free and much cooler than the previous model.

    The question of the hour is: why would anybody spend $60 on this when the AirTV adapter is half that?

    I did. Maybe your ad blocker is blocking it.
