A few of the episodes r being downloaded in MKV formats n that too HD Version, some as big as 2GB.
I tried unsubscribing and subscribing again, but it didn't work.

Plus the series downloaded via ur links r much later than EZTV.IT
i would like to suggest u add EZTV.It in ur list.

    Hi Sameer,

    Please don't save letters, sometimes it's hard to get what you're saying.

    Have you subscribed in SD or HD? The usual format for HD files is .mkv so if you're subscribed in HD it's normal to get .mkv files. If you want .avi files just subscribe in SD.

    We use EZTV.it uploads, we just don't use their web (we fetch them from The Pirate Bay), so it's unlikely that ours are "slower". Just keep in mind that EZTV doesn't have a lot of HD content so we usually get HD episodes from other TPB sources, and that our feeds are cached every 2 hours so a delay of 2 hours is normal (I just don't think 2 hours is "much later").

    I subscribe for SD, n still i got Glee, Revenge and Fringe in MKV Format or Large Size.

    n in regard to "Much Later", i mean a minimum 1 Day delay, few hours I'm fine with.

    Regardless, Love Ur App n Hope the best for U n Ur team, on it.

    Hi Sameer,

    Can you please send us the log? (About tab -> View logs)

    It's possible that TVShows hasn't found SD torrents for those shows (we're having problems with our server and our feeds have ben intermittently down for the last couple of weeks) and therefore it downloaded the HD version (TVShows has a timeout of 18 hours, after which it downloads any available version... that may be the "much later" you were talking about).

    Here's the log as requested.

    Even though TV Shows hasn't found any SD Torrents, I have been going directly going to EZTV.IT n Downloading them.

    But regardless of minor setbacks, i love TVShows.

    All the best.

    Hi Sameer,

    As Cristina said, we had some problems with our feeds, but now they are back on. Also, it seems that Skins is not being uploaded regularly by our selected uploaders (for example, nothing from eztv). So TVShows only knows about the HD version. Some hours later TVShows loses hope of finding an SD version and it downloads the HD version. That's why you are seeing nearly one day delays. I recommend you to just select the HD to get the torrents faster.

    About the Skins episode, you can unrar it if you choose the .rar file and select any encoding if it asks you.
