File format preference

Great Program! Is there a way to ensure that TVShows only searches torrents of a specific file format? I'm specifically wanting to change the preferences to only download .avi and not .mkv files.

    Hi James,

    You can select SD or HD for each show. HD is usually released in .mkv, so you want to avoid that. SD used to be released in .avi, but unfortunately last week the scene (the people that rip the episodes) agreed to use .mp4 as the new standard for SD files, so I'm afraid now there's no way to download .avi files... some less popular shows are still released in .avi, but most of them are already in .mp4.
