My HDA began blocking the website when I set a fixed IP for my tv and gave it a name of "TV." This broke all of my Plex clients on top of blocking the website

Amahi 8 can't handle having a fixed IP hostname of "TV" and domains that end in *.tv

I can reproduce the same error with other domains. The website is broken when you add fixed IP with a host name of "bike" and work

Below shows the hda routing to TV.[your_hda_domain].com

  • Project changed from amahi 8 platform to Amahi 9
  • Status changed from New to Assigned
  • Assignee set to cpg

We will need work on on this on Amahi 9. I realize it's difficult with such a long new list of common name TLDs coming online fast.

I think for now you can work around the issue avoiding using static IP/names like that.

I just want to add that the help TLD is acting up, since the default entry of help.domain is in there on installation

good point. we will delete that dns short name

#1342 addresses this I believe.

I can vouch this is an issue for me too. I cannot access any site that is on the .tv domain if I have a fixed IP for TV.
