using Netgear/OpenDNS with Roku (follow up)
Got "most" of it figured out: I am using http://netgear.opendns.com to block most websites at certain times of the day (like the immediate hours before school and after school), however during these times (which I am using the high blocking category) I would still like full access to each channel on Roku that I am subscribed to. For example, by turning off Proxy/Anonymize category and adding certain websites to my white list I successfully got most of my channels working (spud's, timelesstelevision, etc.) except for Amazon Instant Video & Acorn TV Online. Suggestions? How do I figure out which CDN's these 2 (and other) channels use?
Since the NETGEAR Live Parental Controls (LPC) system does not provide any logging, you may be able to locate some information with the logging system built into some NETGEAR routers on the firewall level. If your router supports network activity and websites visited logging, enable this then view the roku channels while there is no filtering set on the LPC device to ensure they connect. Then use these domains to whitelist the channels.
