How do I rename my Fios Set top boxes? When I click on the box name, there is no edit function available in My Account on the desktop. I changed it before on my old SD boxes. The only box that is named correctly is the Den. Thank you!

Never mind, I figured it out. 

This is for the new FIOS TV Multi-Room DVR System.

 

You have to change the STB name on each individual tv.

 

Then go to:

 

Main Menu> Settings> System> Media Client Settings> Media Client Name> Modify Media Client

 

Maybe this will help someone else and save them time trying to find it.

I changed the name, but it did not change on my cell phone.  Any suggestions ?
