This may sound strange, but during guided setup, did it remember the name of your Roamio? I have run GS and replaced the hard drive on a Roamio and it still knows my box's name. Not a 100% wipe.
Names of machines are also stored in the TiVo cloud by service number. It could've pulled it down during the guided setup.

I haven't seen it mentioned in this thread, but it is worth repeating. Before starting the downgrade process, you can use kmttg to backup your one passes, thumb ratings, and custom channel list.
And that should be a Tivo service. Fios even has that. When you get a new box (if the old one isn't fried), they advise you to do a backup so you can restore it when you get the new box. Saves everything but recordings (legal issues there).
