Disappearing Subscriptions

I've been using TVShows for a long time and have never had any problems until recently. Like others, episodes don't always download, but if I open the preference pane it seems to jumpstart the process. A more irritating issue has been subscriptions that just disappear. I have had to add Castle back twice in the last month and I just went through and re-added about a half dozen other programs. Some are current shows (like Castle, Once Upon a Time, New Girl) and a couple haven't actually started yet (new seasons of 24, About a Boy). I won't even notice that a show has dropped off the list until I realize that it's been a while since I've seen a new episode - and sure enough, it's no longer on the list.

I did a very superficial check of the forums before posting and haven't seen anyone mentioning a similar issue, so I apologize if this has been addressed elsewhere. Other than an uninstall/reinstall of the pref pane, I'm not sure how to even begin solving this problem and i hate to lose all of my custom subscriptions (none of which have disappeared, by the way).

    I also have this issue. Happend with Once Upon A Time last week. Also, episodes just don't show up as quick as before... I don't know how often the "feed" is updated, but EZTV has released the episode and TVShows doesn't download it before the next day or so.
