Avast warning on HDHomeRun Software for Windows

Post by odhinn »

Hello,

I just installed a HDHomeRun Connect 4K and connected it to my Plex server. All is working fine. Very impressed with how well this tuner works, and how simple the installation and configuration process was.

I downloaded the "HDHomeRun Software for Windows" from https://www.silicondust.com/support/downloads/ and when I ran the installer, Avast blocked the install claiming there was "IDP.Alexa.53" virus in the installer.

I'm assuming this is a false positive on the part of Avast, but since I didn't turn up anything in a Google search or on the SiliconDust support site or these forums about this, I stopped the installation.

Has anyone else run into this? Anyone from Silicon Dust want to chime in?

Thanks!

Seems to be a false positive - seeing forum threads regarding other apps detecting like this as well.
