I run my Adguard Home on my Home Assistant setup. This works very well for let's say 99% :)

But when i visit IMDB.com i am seeing an amazon ad. I am (or trying to) blocking amazon ads.

How do i block this one?

P.S. what would be the right sub forum to please a topic in when like me running Adguard on HASS?

AdGuard Home is only a DNS, therefore no element hiding possible which is required for this ad.

Isn't there a solution to also block these ads? (With the use of Adguard) Before adguard i used PFBlockerNG. If i am not mistaking PFBlockerNG did block these ads.

How did you see that this is an element ad?

DNS only blocks domains (like HOSTS files), so unless that ad is delivered from a specific domain that could be blocked via a filter via the filter list you're using in AG Home, you can't block it without a traditional ad blocker.

You can try using a different filter list (I recommend OISD full) and see if it goes away, but don't be surprised if this can't be blocked via DNS.
