Local channel connector

I just installed a LCC to my living room tv, is there a way for my son's cable box(older geni) to pick up the same local channels or do I need to install another LCC?

What are your DirecTV box model numbers?

With the LCC connected to your Genie DVR, any remote Genie Mini Clients should see the same channels since they're "slaved" to the main Genie DVR.

So the HR24 is its own DVR with its own tuners and would require an AM21 to receive off-air stations using an antenna. It can only view the HR44's off-air channels if you record them first.
