For YouTube, you can change the name of the box if you follow the steps pointed out in this thread.
For Netflix, you'll have to ask them to create an option from their app to assign a different name for the device.

The destination apps have to support it, as well as the receiving device firmware (for discovery/launching when the apps aren't already running in the foreground). The DIAL protocol is open, but thus far neither TiVo nor Roku have published specs for third-party developers to support DIAL - only Netflix and YouTube have been 'blessed' on each platform, through private partnerships.wkearney99 wrote:As for services, I likewise noticed that the Pandora app can't stream to the Roku, while it can stream to a Chromecast. Which is also the situation with a Tivo, it shows up as a destination for Netflix and Youtube, but not for Pandora. Which indicates what? Is it the client making the determination or are the destinations not advertising something?
