blacklisting

I found that Nvidia tracking domains:
IPv4:
gfwsl.geforce.com
gfe.geforce.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
telemetry.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
gfe.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
telemetry.gfe.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
events.gfe.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)

IPv6:
gfwsl.geforce.com
gfe.geforce.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
telemetry.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
gfe.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
telemetry.gfe.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)
events.gfe.nvidia.com (already blocked in Pi-Hole)

And this domain, which are not blocked. Maybe its not tracking?:
services.gfe.nvidia.com

I don’t think it’s a tracking domain, https://forums.geforce.com/default/topic/857331/stop-geforce-experience-from-updating/

Thanks for that.
The domain is only contacted, when Geforce Experience is installed. So that makes sense for update checks.

I did some experimenting tonight with my LG Smart TV and this is the list of servers I found that could be blacklisted:

These block ads in the LG App Store

This blocks the ads that show up here: https://i.imgur.com/2TKYBf5.png

It has some trade-offs, though.

  1. You have to allow it in order to sign any EULA agreements and to download apps. Doing so makes the ads appear, but turning the TV off (standby) and on again with the site re blacklisted clears them.

  2. The App icons and screenshots IN THE APP STORE would not appear.

This was not a huge loss because LG’s app store is tiny. Every other smart TV feature works.

Blocking ITV Hub Player Advertisements

Block the following domains.

tom.itv.com


#27

They seem to have changed their advert server.

Blocking:

toots-a.akamaihd.net

Now does the trick instead. Stops the Windows desltop browser version of ITV Hub working, but skipsads on my Samsung smart TV & Fire TV.

Not sure how to add to the original post but I’ve found blocking: logs.roku.com rather than more specific names helpful. I have >7000 hits to austin.logs.roku.com in the last 24 hours.

Outside of that:

captive.roku.com can be safely blocked if you don’t need captive portal support (i.e. Hotel or Dorm connect: https://www.reddit.com/r/Roku/comments/3ppa7k/roku_has_added_captive_portal_support/)

And… victoria.logs.roku.com has started appearing on mine. Blocked.
