Apple TV (96) — I thought the discoveryd nightmare was over?!

    This is my first Apple TV, however I was reading for about a year how Yosemite would rename Apple TV and other network computers with crazy numbers on the end.

    As far as I read, Apple dumped discoveryd part-way through Yosemite and in iOS 9. Why then, is my new Apple TV 4 showing up on my El Capitan and iOS 9 devices with increasingly higher numbers tacked on the end? For reference, my Apple TV is connected by Ethernet to an AirPort Extreme.

    Does anyone know what's happening here?

    You can change the name of the Apple TV in the Settings on the Apple TV itself.

    then it would be "mytv(3)".
    The name is irrelevant its the (xxx) instance # regardless of being the ONLY thing named 'mytv'

    It'd be incredibly funny if tvOS is still using discoveryd. Just adds fuel to the fire that this thing has been sitting the pipeline for a while now.

    Yup, I noticed this too. Discoveryd returns like the Babadook!
