Rename dta devices

Rename dta devices

I'm trying to rename dta devices, which I've done in the past but can no longer find out how to do this.

All searches for solutions no longer work. Has anyone done this recently?

at the x1 set top box select the gear(settings) >> Device Settings >> Device Name == select one of the names there or create a custom name.  sorry, i didn't see DTA .. for DTA name change use the Xfinity My Account app, press the TV tab and locate the DTA, press the right arrow and change name of device.

using iphone or android. I just checked and when you select the TV tab (or menu TV in android) it shows you a list of your TV equipment. touch the line for the DTA (shows a > on right side).
