Is it possible to assign names to the new Apple TVs for identification and selection from the remote app? We are going to have 3 in our house and I assume I can name them so I know which one to select when I use the remote. Does anyone have experience with this yet?

I would think you can change the names via iTunes in a similar manner that you change an iPhone's name.

Yes - default is Apple TV - you can do custom names and it has just about every room name as quick selections to support tons of Apple TVs in your house

(It's done on the ATV itself not iTunes - doesn't even show up in iTunes)
