I’m pretty lost as to what could be the cause. Initially, I thought it was Pi-Hole for two main reasons: time proximity to when I first initialized Pi-Hole, and the fact that I have 2 Apple TV’s, with the identical problem occurring on both (same App - FoxNews).
1. When I erase the app and reinstall, it works for about an hour.
2. When I manually set the DNS to say, 126.96.36.199, within AppleTV settings, it
doesn’t fixes the issue.
These two things lead me to believe that PH is not the cause.
I have poured over ATV logs and there is one error in particular that stands out, but the online literature is nonexistent. I’m afraid it’s above my pay grade. I won’t even post it here.
I might try to factory reset one of the ATV’s, but the odds seem extremely low that this will work, given that it’s occurring on two of them.
One extra thing to note, even with PH on, streaming FN directly from their webpage works just fine…So, I have no idea what blacklisted items are causing this. I thought I whitelisted them all. This is so frustrating.
I think that the constant querying of
for whatever reason, is crashing the app. I finally have crash logs from ATV, and the only thread crashing is
Thread 2 name: Dispatch queue: com.adobe.analytics.processing
Update 2: Having whitelisted the aforementioned domain (again), it seems to have finally stabilized.
Update 3: I have discovered that if Xfinity is your cable provider, you might still have some very annoying issues watching on ATV. I did not have this problem with Cox.
