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.

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.

So does this mean my contract has been broken? They havent provided the services i signed up since day one
DirecTV provides access to locals in general. There is no guarantee/promise that any specific channel will always be provided, as that would be impossible since they don't own the channels.
As such their Terms of Service have a clause, just like any other provider that channels may change at any time. So the contract is not broken.
