Device names on mydlink View app
« on: October 14, 2016, 08:28:46 PM »

Is there a way to change the device name listed in the mydlink View app?   I just added a second DNR-202L to my set up (one for each house), and they are both listed as DNR-202L (with their serial numbers).   

I have changed both of the device names to something useful in the web interfaces for the respective devices.   The useful names show up on the mydlink Lite app and on the mydlink.com website.

Am I missing something, or does the mydlink View app not use the device names configured?

I did figure out the camera mydlink app allows renaming of cameras.

But since clicking the DNR202l in the camera app, it takes you directly to the NVR, I don't see a way.

I don't believe the DNR can be renamed if you have more than one of the same model on the same MDL account.
