    I'm trying to set up a friend's Wii U with homebrew.
    Being a DNS admin by trade, I wanted to verify TubeHax actually blocks all of the appropriate hosts. I am not convinced that it blocks them all. It's possible that the 'TubeHax' DNS uses some hackery that I'm not familiar, but in any case its better safe than sorry. Is the Admin of this DNS server on here?

    See the dig results and remarks per hostname.

    tal@failbox:$ cat wiiu-hosts.txt
    c.shop.nintendowifi.net
    cbvc.cdn.nintendo.net
    cbvc.nintendo.net
    nus.c.shop.nintendowifi.net
    nus.cdn.c.shop.nintendowifi.net
    nus.cdn.shop.wii.com
    nus.cdn.wup.shop.nintendo.net
    nus.wup.shop.nintendo.net

    tal@failbox:$ for host in $(cat wiiu-hosts.txt) ; do dig @107.211.140.65 $host A ; done

    So, if I just use 104.236.72.203 everything will be fine?

    I can't filter URLs on my router on anything.

    Yes it looks accordingly to my analysis that 104.236.72.203 is safe to use.
