    Is there any way to see/edit/purge the data cached in zeroconf / Bonjour?

    Situation: Last night my Netgear Orbi** router decided to issue different IPs to several devices, the Bolt being one of them. I had to power down all minis, reboot the Bolt, and run guided setup again on all minis.

    Problem: Bonjour appears to be cache name/address pairs for a long time. "Living Room" had multiple entries, all of which were dead until all Tivo devices were powered off.

    ** Run, don't walk. They are half-baked, at best.

    Not sure if guided setup was strictly required - in the past, I've gotten away with

    -Turn off Minis
    -Reboot Hosts and force service connection
    -Turn on Minis and force connection, one at a time

    to clear up stale entries when my MoCa network implodes itself.

    As for IPs, personally I have all my TiVos set as static outside DHCP range.

    Thanks, but the fact that one has to go through all that is absurd.
