Does anybody know of an easy way to get the hostname to stick on the TiVo? Once the box is booted, you can call 'hostname', and it will set/display it appropriately. However, any attempt to call hostname in the boot process seems not to stick.

Also, does the DHCP client advertise the box's hostname if it's set?

I'm trying to get the TiVo to play nicely in my home DNS/DHCP setup. If worse comes to worse, I'll do it through a fixed DHCP allocation keyed off of the TiVo MAC address, but that's not the most elegant solution.

Any ideas?
