In the new Sonos app on an iMac desktop, I am unable to browse LiveXLive (Slacker) content. Interestingly, I can play an existing Favorite LiveXLive station, but in this case album art does not appear in the app. I have narrowed this issue down to Avast antivirus on the Mac - if I disable its Web Shields, everything works fine. The service also works as expected on other controllers & PCs on my network, so I am quite sure the issue is Avast. First, I wanted to report this in case others are having similar issues.
Second, I would like to try whitelisting LiveXLive in my Avast settings to solve the problem. I tried adding livexlive.com but this did not work. I contacted LiveXLive and they told me that Sonos could possibly provide URLs to their service for whitelisting. Is this possible, or are these internal URLs kept secret for piracy or other reasons?
