During the update I get this, "no such file or directory", should I worry?
Code:
 i  Initializing Diversion

  ✔  blocking list
grep: /opt/share/diversion/list/hostslist_fs: No such file or directory

  i  Restarting Dnsmasq
  i  Waiting for Dnsmasq to restart...
  ✔  Dnsmasq restarted

  i  Checking dnsmasq.conf entries
  ✔  Additional hosts

  i  Checking cron jobs
  ✔  cron file found
  ✔  blocking list update

  ✔  Diversion Lite v4.1.11 auto-update complete
No, it's just a coding sloppiness.
Edit: Fixed.

I'm new to Diversion, and this is the setup I would like (ideally):

Have ad-blocking enabled on my TV (for YouTube etc.) and not for anything else (no other device on the network)

Is this possible? If so, how would I go about this? Would it be possible using specific ports somehow?

I looked in the manual and couldn't find anything describing this. My apologies if this is not the place to ask.

It's possible with DNS filter. Set the global filter to go somewhere else upstream, like 9.9.9.9 and set each client on the network in the exceptions at the bottom. You'd be doing the opposite of what the FAQ says:
https://diversion.ch/faq-reader/how-to-exclude-a-client-from-ad-blocking.html

You cannot block YouTube ads with a DNS sinkhole:

amtm resides in /jffs/ and /usr/sbin/ which are non-volatile directories on the router.

Diversion and Skynet will fix things during install, no need to remove any files. pixelserv-tls will be installed during the Diversion install.
Thank you!

Since I seem to be able to get to the former (suspected to be corrupted) USB stick again - at least briefly: Where the Diversion whitelist / blacklist files are stored?

I am using archive.org's backups of host-file hosts... why don't you use backup urls? those domains could remain malicious for decades. Is there going to be any problem or lesser functionality using these lists with the latest version of diversion & skynet? would be nice if you left that as an option for people who use backup urls.

Does anyone know how to get Diversion to work while also running a VPN client on the router?
Doing so requires changing the DNS 1 and 2 servers in LAN > DHCP Server which seems to make Diversion not apply anymore.

Scroll down to DNS Behavior. Xentrk is one of the script developers here on SNB, I think the expert on using DNS with VPN so that scripts like Diversion work properly.

Thanks, that should free up a little ram. ;)

How well does this https://hostfiles.frogeye.fr/firstparty-trackers-hosts.txt list compare to the original adservers https://raw.githubusercontent.com/j...f10d98827c04a82b8f5/SeparateDomainList/7.list


for those interested in blocking those plus host list still

https://github.com/jumpsmm7/Generat...21d7e1cf10d98827c04a82b8f5/SeparateDomainList

it is
8.list generated from https://hosts-file.net/emd.txt
9.list generated from https://hosts-file.net/exp.txt
10.list generated from https://hosts-file.net/grm.txt
11.list generated from https://hosts-file.net/hjk.txt
12.list generated from https://hosts-file.net/mmt.txt
13.list generated from https://hosts-file.net/psh.txt
I'm not building in lists that no longer get updated in Diversion.

Thanks for that. Shame Youtube can't be blocked, though.

Thx for the update @thelonelycoder
Just to be clear, back in the days my blocking list went from standard to custom (custom+) when I installed skynet. Since this has been discontinued, I can safely re-select a predefined list in Diversion?

Just the plus part is removed, the blocking list type can be changed at any time and did not affect the plus hosts that were added separately.

ok, but selecting a predefined list and having diversion installed next to skynet will still list the blocking list as 'custom' right?
Sorry, I'm just a little confused on the naming because I initially installed diversion with the 'standard' list, then it went to 'custom+' after installing skynet and now after the update it says 'custom'.
I'm not sure if it's supposed to be 'custom' or 'standard' now :)
