Today my Pi-Hole is now failing to prevent adverts playing in YouTube on my Nvidia Shield. I have updated the Pi-Hole but they persist. Are others seeing this, and any advice about what I can do about it other than waiting?

Purchase YouTube Premium?

 

Also, Android devices use Google DNS. My Shield TV tries talking to Google DNS all the time. Ensure it is blocked / redirected to your local DNS server.

Thanks for the ideas Michael. I prefer Patreon to get the money to the creators. I'll redirect the google dns requests to the pihole on the router and see if it fixes it. Interesting you say it uses google dns, because the pihole has been working for months previously.
