You don't do anything on the TiVo. Just edit the hosts file on your PC as Robert suggests. Just note that the hosts file is found in different locations depending on your Windows version (assuming you are using Windows). You'll just have to search for it.
Windows PCs use WINS (I think) to identify themselves to each other without needing DNS. That doesn't work between Windows and Linux. Putting an entry in the hosts file gives Windows a way to find your TiVo just by using a name.
