On May 4, 2019 at 00:15 pacific time, my BitDefender internet monitor posted the following notification:

"BOX A.1 has detected that Dish Hopper DVR (Family Room) attempted a connection to a suspicious remote location 208.30.75.64."

The remote site times out when I tried to access it.

If this is a legitimate request by Dish I will allow the connection to be made, otherwise the site will continue to be blocked from my network.

Any ideas as to what is going on?
