FiOSTV with a bunch of numbers showing on my PC?

Message 1 of 2

I am hoping I am addressing this in the right area, if not, I apologize, but I don't know if it's a TV or computer question.


I know there were some upgrades done about two or three weeks ago to the STBs. I noticed after the upgrades/updates, my computer was picking up FOUR FIOSTVs under the Network on MY computer. (I have Windows 8.1 operating system.) I asked my mother to check her computer, which is a Windows 7 computer, and the FIOSTVs do not show up at all. 

Why are these showing up on my computer, and what are these for?

They're on your network so why shouldn't they show up?  With some software, now retired, the STB could access pictures and videos from your computer.  Pretty much nothing you can access on your PC unless (and in the future) you have the new VMS box.
