Hi there, I've got a fairly diverse network at home, and I really would like all of the machines in my network to be able to see each other without issues when referred to by name.  I have a Synology (running linux), several Windows 7 PC's, a Mac, and some entertainment devices like TiVo's, etc.  It's pretty spotty as to which computer can see what.  Most of my machines are using static IP's so at least I have one reliable way to get to the others.

What do you guys suggest to get reliable name resolution across all of these different machines without a bunch of archaic issues with NetBIOS and modifying HOST files, etc.?  I'm using a D-Link router too.
