Free Local Channel Connector for DirecTV if you live in an area where you are not getting CBS.

Call 800.531.5000 and ask them for the LCC kit (local channel connector) since you are no longer able to receive CBS.

It is basically an OTA antenna that replaces your local stations, but is integrated with the receiver so you can still use DVR, guide, etc.

I think it is only compatible with HR44 & HR54 receivers.

Comes with a cheap HD antenna and a USB device to plug into the receiver.

They sent me one, and it would pick up zero channels from Little Rock, AR or for that matter anywhere else. The antenna will not work for 80 mile away stations.

They sent one to me as well - completely useless and a step backwards. They did however also give me a $30/month credit for 12 months after threatening to cancel the service - that made it worth it!

Despite what Kyrie says, the Earth isn't flat. 80 miles is an extremely long way to get a television signal. You are going to need a very strong antenna very high up.

Yes, DVR does work.

Seems like you need to have a strong OTA signal for for this to work very well and the antenna they provide isnt great. No way you are going to pick up stations from 80 miles away with it.
