Just wanted to send this over. I have TVShows set to save the torrent files to my external hard drive connected to my airport extreme. This HDD connected to the airport extreme is the hard drive that feeds the media/data to my apple tv 2/XBMC setup. It appears that TVShows stopped downloading the torrents to this external because it wasn't recognized anymore? It was almost as if that drive went to sleep or something, and then TVShows didn't know where to save the torrent files. It worked the first day I set it up, but no new torrents have been downloaded - TVShows has stopped working.

    Currently, TVShows doesn't check whether the destination folder is available or not. So if the HDD was unmounted from your Mac then TVShows wouldn't have access to the destination folder and therefore it wouldn't download any torrents.

    If you go to the Preferences tab in TVShows, you will see a "blank document" icon in the "destination folder" dropdown menu if the HDD is not available. If it is available you will see a Folder/HDD icon.
