Avahi - Endless Computer Name Loop

    So I've had this issue where my Mac thinks that there is another computer on the network with it's name and in turn added a (2) to the name. But as I looked around the network, my Apple TV was all the way up to a (10). So there is a loop somewhere causing this to happen. I have had to disable this plugin completely just to get it to stop. Is this an actual bug, or am I configuring something wrong? I didn't change any default settings. Any help would be amazing!

    In the Avahi settings, set Maximum Cache Size to 0 to disable the cache. That should stop the duplication.



  • Thank You So Much! I knew it had to be something stupid. I don't know yet, but hopefully this is the end to my problem.
