    My genie is suddenly showing my other DVRs by their ID number rather than the name assigned to them when in the playlist -- instead of "bedroom" for example, it says the ID number. I did make sure that the ID is correct on the other DVRs and that all other whole home functions are working. How can I fix this.

    Try restarting the Genie.

    "If in doubt" reboot. :lol:

    I've seen this before after I changed a location name. A reboot gets the naming back.

    Specifically, the "IDs" are actually the MAC addresses of the DECA nodes displaying I presume.
