    I just happened to have Console open when I noticed configd report that the "network configuration changed." It then said "setting hostname to appletv.home".

    If I open Terminal, I do indeed now get a prompt which says "appletv:~ [my username]$".

    What's happened? I did a Google and couldn't find anything.

    I'm running SL and my router is a BT Home Hub.

    This happened to me too. Did you ever figure out why? I changed mine back via sudo hostname "some name here"
