Local Channel Connector for HS17


Local Channel Connector for HS17

Just a quick question, I'm in a market that is affected by the Nexstar and CBS blackout.  My equipment is an HS17 (Genie 2).  Should I even bother to try and get the LCC?  I'm hearing on other forums that the HS17 isn't supported.

Re: Local Channel Connector for HS17



The Local Channel Connector (LCC) is only compatible with the 2nd and 3rd generation Genie (HR44 and HR54). It is not compatible with the Genie-2 (HS17).


This is one of many downsides to the HS17. The fact the HS17 forbids full HDDVRs from being on the account, so being Client only, is the main reason I am against this new system.

This deal is getting worse all the time.  I'm about ready to jump ship if they don't get this thing fixed soon.
