samsung TV DHCP

i have a annoyance Sad  i have found the problem but cannot find how to fix it , My Router logs continuosly gives this error

"dnsmasq-dhcp[22989]: not giving name localhost to the DHCP lease of 192.168.1.112 because the name exists in /etc/hosts with address 127.0.0.1"

The problem acording to Mr Google is my Smart TV Name , i cannot remove the brackets within the TV settings it shows as

Re: samsung TV DHCP

Does the router have an option to 'always assign the same IP address' to the TV? I'm wondering if it helps to assign a static local address via DHCP. If that doesn't help, doe the TV allow you to specify a static local address in the settings menus?

Bit off topic but I have a Samsung Smart TV and I've noticed it making outbound requests to a couple of host names every few minutes that no longer exist in DNS so the lookups fail, eg:

12:35:05, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (sd1pwpki006.centricaplc.com)
12:32:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)
12:32:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)
12:27:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)
12:27:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)
12:22:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)
12:22:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)
12:17:35, 01 Aug.DNS name resolution failure (euontv.internetat.tv)

I contacted Samsung about it a while back but they didn't seem interested and told me to speak to my ISP instead Grin

Re: samsung TV DHCP

All sensible hardware has a network name of localhost which it uses to refer to itself.

Unfortunately, this crappy Samsung doesn't know this and asks the router to give a local IP address for localhost. Since the router has already allocated localhost to itself, it knows this is an error.

BTW Those log entries [correction] maybe shouldn't give DNS faults:-

Why? The output from your dig commands showns one of the domains lacking any forward A/CNAME records, whilst the other has a CNAME that points to a non-existent domain? Huh
