    Hello, I recently moved and after the move I changes my tivos locations and re-named all three. My series 2 and one of my s2dt's renamed, but my 2nd s2dt will not rename. I checked to see if it has connected to the tivo service and it has. It has been like this for the last two weeks. Has anyone else had this problem and if so how did you correct it.

    Thanks in advance!

    I'm in the same boat. One of mine won't rename. The name is changed on the Tivo website but won't show up using MRV. No idea how to correct it though.

    Thanks for the response. I forgot to mention that on the tivo site that it does show the correct name. Hopefully, someone will have some idea on how to correct this problem. I just spent 30 minutes on the phone with tivo and they told me to try a hard reboot, which I have already done, so I guess they have no idea how to correct it either.

    A clear and delete everything might solve the problem, but then you lose all recordings and season passes.

    It took my THD about three days to "find" and apply the name given to it, but it eventually did.

    Maybe just let things roll forward for a couple of days to see if the change catches.

    Don't know why, but last night my Tivo's name was finally corrected. Before you try deleting everything, try unplugging all of your tivos and then rebooting them. I had to unplug my tivo that would not rename because of another problem and after I plugged it back it, the name was corrected. Not sure if the change had anything to do with the reboot but its worth a shot.

    A restart fixed the issue for me.

    Tivo support told me this was a known issue (ie, renaming your units on Tivo.com and then NOT having the name change on the units themselves)...is this not true? i haven't tried restarting all 4 of my units, but i changed the name on 2 of them two weeks ago and they STILL haven't been renamed.
