    Has anyone seen any info on when this will be available to the general masses. It would be nice to get sub channels back on my DirecTV system. DIRECTV Local Channel Connector

    Nah ...

    If you can manage to get the usually clueless CSRs to really research into the new LCC, and stop merely confusing it with the obsolete AM21.

    They'll finally just say it's currently in pilot testing in the Las Vegas market with no info. on a release date to the masses given.

    I’m sure when they become available we can work out a special buy for satellite guys members

    I think they are only going to be free for customers who are losing a local channel due to a dispute. Otherwise I bet they'll charge for them.

    I mean hell, if they really are free I'll take 30, and replace my H20s with H25s and an LCC :)

    Exactly. That’s why they come with the dinky antenna.

    You loose a local channel, they send you this kit to shut you the hell up.

    I'd really like to get my hands on one since the AM21 doesn't work on my HR44 since they started the new GUI rollout.
    I even replaced my HR44-500 with the HR44-200 because my thinking was that the HR was the problem with various problems with functionality.
    But it was the AM21 causing the problems.
