Rename from default "PlexMediaPlayer" on RPi

Just installed this on 2 Macs & a Pi 2. The Macs get named after my system fine but the Pi is still a default "PlexMediaPlayer" No UI option to change this yet or am I missing it somehow?

    correct. we are working on that, the reason it's not exposed to the UI is that we haven't got a on screen keyboard yet, but that will have to be added for search, when that's done we will be able also add in text settings.
