But it does appear to have an USB Tuner between the antenna and the 44/54. Is this the new/replacement AM21? My AM21 does function well any more as it can't seem to locate the schedule data. I gave up.
To me DirecTV is the best streamer out there for OTT, re-transmitted OTA, DVR, and premiums. Incorporating an OTA Tuner and paid apps such Netflix, Prime, etc. with the choice of connecting to the birds or Internet would make it unbeatable. I tried leaving until I discovered the others had little or no 5.1 surround.
Hey thanks for getting that info. and posting it ...Okay here is some scoop from a DTV CSR that was helpful and curious. Right now it is a pilot project to be rolled in the Las Vegas market. It will be free of charge. We'll see it on their site when it becomes widely available.
Re above. I am not going to an HS17 as I would have to give up my other receivers. I want a backup system plus my HR 24 and HR44 can tune seven at once. No 54 either as I don't want another two years in case I need a no fault divorce from DTV. I'm Ethernet and don't want to go WiFi and clients. The LCC has two power sources as the antenna needs one and the USB dongle needs one. Of course you can use your antenna and pitch theirs. TV antennas are TV antennas. Depending on signal you could use a coat hanger if you wanted. I would not use their antenna as I already have two attic antennas that suck up everything I would want. The only reason I want it is that picture quality is much better OTA as Sat is compressed then decompressed. Plus, it's a new gizmo. Gotta have it especially if free.
Are you In Las Vegas? The literature says Hr44 and HR54. "Find out how to set up your Local Channel Connector to watch local news, sports, and more on HR44 and HR54 receivers. Plus, it’s yours to keep!"just chatted, was told i am having one sent at no cost. i have an hr24 and hr34
so time will tell
