TVShows hasn't been downloading any TVShows lately. I know it's running like it supposed to but why is it not downloading?

Can anyone help me with this problem?

    I am also having the same problem and when I try to manually download it tells me I am not connected to the internet although I know I am

    I managed to solve my problem by looking through the knowledge base. I was trying to download the torrents to an external drive. I am now saving them to my hard drive

    I download my episodes onto an external drive, I've been doing that ever since I started using TVShows and this is the first time I have ever had a problem like this. Is there anyway to fix this problem without having to download episodes onto the internal drive?

    One of the TV shows I am subscribed to "Hell on Wheels" did download last night but it seems like that is the only subscription that's downloading correctly. How do I fix the other subscriptions that are not downloading?

    Yep, same for me, it's been a couple of months now.
    I know that this software is free of charge, but a quick periodic post to let us know what the status of the fix wouldn't hurt.

    Is there any other program that does the same thing as TVShows?

    I used the recommendation from another blog on here and I'm now trialling ShowRSS. it's not as visually appealing and doesn't seem to offer custom show feeds but it has a variety of good shows.

    Registering makes me uncomfortable though.

    Is there a way to integrate ShowRSS into TVShows so the shows that TVShows downloads comes from ShowRSS?
