I can no longer check for updates, add a show, receive any torrents. I deleted my 2.0 RC prefpane and downloaded a fresh copy and copied it to the PreferencePane folder. I closed and reopened System Preferences and opened TVShows. After a second time opening it, I got a message "Cannot Connect. Using an old show list temporarily. I selected a show. UPDATING SHOW INFORMATION... just has a spinning icon.

    Hi there,

    Maybe you installed a firewall, like Little Snitch. If so, you should allow all connection to both and System

    I think I found the problem - firewall in Lion. I added System
    Preferences. Now I am looking for (if I can find the
    path...). Can you tell me where it's located? I added System
    Preferences thru the Advanced button in the Firewall section of
    Security and Privacy. But I need the path for to add
    that. Thanks.


    Got the latest version of Little Snitch. I had 2.4.3 and now have 2.4.4.

    I had 2 Allows in Little Snitch. I deleted TVShows from Little Snitch
    all together. It's not asking me to accept or deny anything now.

    Hi again,

    It is inside of the .prefpane, if you installed it for your user it should be in this folder:


    Or if you installed it for all users, this one:
