    I know that the DVR name under system information disappeared for TivoHD users when they upgraded to the latest (b revision) software level.

    I just noticed that my S3's names have also disappeared and show <Name this DVR on tivo.com> instead.

    I've tried changing the names and forcing connections a few hours later, but no change.

    Before I call Tivo, I'd like to get some data points.

    Are there other Series 3 owners who have lost their DVR names under System Information or is it just me?

    (I also have a S2DT box active that still knows its' name)

    The same thing happened to me!
    I'm not too woried because MRV & TTG are not enabled on S3's, but I'm not sure if this affects Online Scheduling.
    Anyone having problems with this?
    I'll try it know to see what happens.

    Count me as affected by this as well. My S3 and THD have both lost their names.

    Edit: Online scheduling still works fine as does Unbox.

    It seems to be a known issue since the software update.

    Yep. I think it's bugged as of the last update. Same here. It'll come back eventually.

    Hmmm. I have this problem and an Unbox movie I rented two hours ago has not yet shown up on my THD.

    Same here. Name is missing but it hasn't affected unbox downloads, a movie is downloading now, nor has it affected playing music and photos.

    Did you order Unbox through the TiVo or amazon.com?

    I think I may understand what happened. When I bought my THD this week, I used "change service number". Today when I ordered a movie from amazon.com, I picked the TiVo name of the unit that I replaced, which is now the THD. But since I guess the THD never got a name, and the replaced TiVo is stored away off the network, Unbox doesn't know where to send it.

    Well, that's great.

    Go to amazon.com and re-link your TiVos to amazon. That should refresh the connections.
