The tv show app works great I just have a question/ suggestion for example eztv sometimes uploads different versions of the same show I.e. immerse, ASAP the tv show app will download one version then later on will download the other version is there a way for the app to know the show has being downloaded already and their is no need for another download of the same episode.

    Hi Rowz,

    TVShows should only download each episode once, as it checks for the episode number and downloads new items in the feed only if their episode number is greater than the last downloaded one.

    But with custom shows, TVShows doesn't check for the episode number, just the date. So if a new version of the same episode appears in the feed, TVShows will download it even if it had already downloaded the episode before, because the date is newer. That's a compromise we made so users could add shows with a non standard naming convention (episode number is harder to check, so it isn't checked at all).

    With preset list subscriptions, there's a known bug that may cause TVShows to download an episode twice, but this only happens from time to time so we don't consider it a severe bug. Nevertheless, we'll try to fix it in the next version.
