    I am using Vista Ultimate on my home PC. When I open the Network folder to
    view the devices, an icon for my DVR appears, but is labeled as "bedroom."
    I'm not sure how this happened as the DVR is not in that location, nor do I
    want the device to be described by location. Right clicking on the icon gives
    me two choices: Create shortcut and Properties, neither of which will let me
    rename this device.

    Thanks in advance for your help.

  2. I'm not sure how this happened as the DVR is not in that location, nor do I
    Wouldn't expect Vista to be able to change the way your DVD player
    describes itself.

    Try to change the DVD's description using the DVD's menu or
    configuration?

    Sry for the late response. Followed your advice and successfully changed DVR
    name from within DVR setup.
    Thanks so much!
