Chromecast and editing in the Home app

Community Member

This should be easy, but can't find the answer. I have 3 TVs with a Chromecast attached to two of them - so far. Both work perfectly.
My problem is the device displays on Google Home. One displays the TV name in a tile under the TV name. Touching the tile gives me two icons on the top right. Settings and 3 dots. The other gives me a TV name (no idea where Home got it) under Local Devices. Touching the tile shows only 3 dots in the top right.
How do I get the 2nd TV to show the Settings icon so I can change the TV name?
BONUS: Do I have to sign in to all three TVs with the same email address?
