changing the name of the tv's on my x1 account

changing the name of the tv's on my x1 account

I have a few tv's on my account that don't have a name that I gave them.  I cannot seem to find any option to change the names from for example "TV4"  to the name of the room it is in.  Any ideas?  I have gone into settings in my account and dont see an option to do that.  I went to the tv name I am trying to change and the only option was to refresh and all tv's will be interrupted.... don't think that is the answer either.  I would appreciate some help.

in this procedure be careful not to creat duplicate names. press your Xfinity button on the remote > gear(settings > Device Settings > and press down button to get to 'Device Name". From there hit the OK button and select Custom name.
