Downloading the same episode more than once

I'm using a private torrent tracker that I can't filter, the only thing i get is the last 100 torrents.

After installation I got a the big bang theory trough my private torrent rss feed.
this torrent later disappeared from the feed, and a little later than that someone else released a a new release (internal) of the same episode. TVShows app downloaded this one as well. When this was removed from the feed, a third one came a long, this time with Hebrew sub hardcoded. As you probably understand I don't want the second and the third download of the same episode. is it possible for the app to keep track of what episode it has downloaded in the past to not make redundant downloads?

Thanks in advance.

    Hi Erik,

    By default, TVShows should only download the first version it encounters. Can you please send us your log? It's in the About tab, Show Logs button.

    Thank you!

    Hi Victor,

    Stupid of me to not look trough the log first. I can only find 2 The Big Bang Theory, and they are actually not the same episode (the hebrew sub one was one episode back). And it is possible that I downloaded the first one manually because my filter was set up incorrectly. I will look for this again now when Im sure my filters are configured correctly and let you know if it fails for some reason.

    Keep up the good work, you are doing a great job with this app. When I find some free time I might be able to help out a bit on the dev.
