    I've had 2 Bolts go bad in the last 30 days. It took me a lot of digging around to get my Mini"s to connect to the Bolt. I have Ethernet connection from the Bolt to the outside world and MOCA for the mini's to the Bolt.
    What took me a while to figure out and remember - I needed to, on the BOLT to change network to Ethernet and MOCA and also changing the setting to say the Bolt is also a "server". Then on the Minis I had to tell it to reconnect to the Bolt (via its name). Bee nice if they provided those instructions (or I missed it).

    Also is there a way to remove the old Bolt name from the network. I now have 3 devices named Living Room.

    If you are having rename failure using the device, it can be changed at TiVo.com, Device Preferences I think.
