Several times, when I turn on my TV and box, the screen asks me to name the location, meaning, I assume, the name of the box. I can't do anything else until I select a name and the enter button.

I'm not sure why I am asked this, since I have only one box and don't know of anything that might access the box other than the remote.

Can anyone explain what's going on and if there is a way to keep from being prompted to name it? It doesn't happen often, but it has happened several times since it was installed.

    Hi Charles50,

    You can name the receiver by going into the Contour 2 receiver settings. Here's how:

    Power on the TV and Cox receiver.
    Press the CONTOUR button on the RX-11 remote.
    Highlight the Gear Icon and press the OK button.
    Highlight Device Settings, press OK.
    Highlight Device Name, press OK.
    Choose a name from the drop down list, press OK.

    Once this step is taken is it saving the name, or is the TV screen showing a different menu than the one you see when completing these steps?
