Can't seem to choose an application.

I recently downloaded this and when I try to download any specific episode of a show I'm interested in, it opens Opera to download it. I have Transmission installed (And have for years), and would much prefer to use that. The problem is that I can't seem to find any option to choose a program with which to download the episodes, and it isn't Transmission by default.
Much appreciated.

    Hi Reese,

    That's because Opera is the default app associated with .torrent files. In order to change that, hit Cmd+i on a .torrent file, go to the "Open with" section, select Transmission on the dropdown menu (if it doesn't appear, click "Other" and search for it in your Applications folder) and click the "Change all" button. Then, if you click any .torrent file it should open Transmission, and TVShows will also trigger it.
