    Anyone else have this problem?

    I have 2 Tivos a S2 and a S3 They both are registered to my account both are registered with Unbox and both have recieved downloads from unbox at diff times.

    Here is the problem I go into My Account and Name my 2 tivos but the S3 will not take it when it calls in...The s2 no prob.

    The S3 screen when you go to the page with the name it still say "name this tivo"

    I did do the Lifetime transfer of the S2 to the S3 and it just went through a few days ago, thought maybe this was the prob. But no it still wont change on the box itself :confused:

    This is a known problem discussed many times in these forums. Tivo is aware of this had has said that they will address it.

    Actually, lack of a name showing up on your TiVo is due to preparations to unveil TTG/TTCB/MRV in November. After TiVo "flips the switch" to allow TiVoToGo on the S3/THD, your TiVo will finally pull its name from the website. The fact that the TiVo is not pulling its name now will not intefer with online scheduling or Unbox downloads.
