    After moving my old Premier and getting it working in a new room, I decided to give it a more sensible name. I've gotten the new name to show up everywhere except directly under "my shows" on the Roamio. The top level entry for the remote DVR still shows the old name. Any way to prod it into showing the new name (short of rerunning guided setup from scratch)?

    Just did it recently on a Roamio. First I went into the network settings and connected to the Tivo service. When that was finished I went into the help menu and restarted the Roamio, you shouldn't have to do a guided setup. I'm not sure if both actions are necessary but it worked for me.

    Looks like the reboot did it. Checking the network setting I saw it had phoned home just recently all by itself, so I just did the reboot, and now the new name does indeed appear. Thanks.

    Using the HDUI reset code may work for this; haven't ever tried it for this though.
