ROON was not able to find my two Pulse 2-speakers which were set up through the BluOS Controller to work as a stereo pair. Until recently this worked without problems. However after installing Avast One as an antivirus software this doesn’t work anymore. I checked that temporarilly disabling the antivirus program solves the issue. Only way, I found so far, to make ROON find the speakers while running Avast One is deleting the fixed group in BluOS Controller. However, I would like to use my former setup again in which the two speakers are seen in ROON as one entity (thus are set up as a fixed group in BluOS Controller).
I chose Avast One as a free anti virus after going through some reviews. However, I can change to another antivirus software if it’s also thrustworthy.
In short, is there a way to solve this problem by setting up some parameters in Avast One? Or is there an other thrustworthy free antivirus I could use which doesn’t show this issue?
Addendum: I just found out that swithing off the firewall in Avast One also solves the problem. Do I actually need a firewal on a desktop-machine in my home network? My router also has its firewall, so I guess this might allready be enough protection.
