Tivo name reverts to old name

I have three Premiers and a couple of old series 2 machines scattered through the house all connected via cat5. The oldest Premier (about a year or so) will suddenly revert back to calling itself that TSN number again.

i go online to tivo and rename back and everything is good for a month or so and then reverts back the TSN number.

all the others fine. all the machines are visible on the network and all of them have internet access.

any clues on what's going here?

I had the same thing happen on my Series 2 box. My TiVoHD didn't have an issue.

Ok, this is weird. It's been happening this week on a several year old, very stable S3. The other S3 and the Elite have no problem, but this one S3 keeps going back & forth between what I named it, and some weird TSN type name.

I can see it when I use TiVo Remote.

I have done nothing to any TiVo to cause this.
