    I just did a Tivo upgrade/relocation, and as such changed the name of both of my Tivos (note to self do NOT name Tivos according to their location!). I changed the names on, and when I look at the system information page the new names are there. However when I go to the NPL the old names show up. How do I make that change?

    It usually take a couple of days to update...
    If you can't wait, you could try to force a daily connection...then maybe reboot after it completes..

    I recently had this same issue. It is a home networking problem. You will need to restart each box, then it will properly "find" the newly named Tivo. This same problem showed up when I brought up either Tivo2Go or Tivo Desktop - it showed the old name for the Tivo that had not been restarted since the name change.
