    Hi Thomas,

    If you're using .torrent files, you need to make utorrent the default app for them: hit Cmd+i on a .torrent file, go to the "Open with" section, select the torrent client you want to use on the dropdown menu (if it doesn't appear, click "Other" and search for it in your Applications folder) and click the "Change all" button. Then, if you click any .torrent file it should open this app, and TVShows will also trigger it.

    If you're using magnets, I'm afraid there is no system setting for handling magnets. Transmission has its own "use Transmission for magnet links" option, but I don't know if utorrent has it. If it doesn't, you can use RCDefaultApp, it will let you choose the default app for pretty much anything.
