Hi annoying customer (weird name, users who have questions are
not annoying at all ;) ),
Let's see if I can explain/solve your issues:
The internet connection message is usually displayed when
TVShows doesn't have access to the torrent file. If you have
internet connection, then your ISP is probably blocking The Pirate
Bay, which is where most of our torrents come from. If that's the
case, you need to activate the "prioritize magnets" option in
TVShows preferences, this way access to TPB is not needed. But keep
reading, this option is incompatible with the solution to your
issue #3 :(
This issue is strange combined with #1, usually when one happens
the other one doesn't. This happens when you have "same as torrent"
as the destination folder in Transmission and you activated magnets
in TVShows. Since with magnets there is no torrent file,
Transmission doesn't know where "same as torrent" is and it needs
to ask you every time where to save each file.
TVShows has an option to "automatically open torrent files after
downloading" (this option launches your torrent manager even if it
isn't running), if you uncheck that it will only download the
torrent files to the destination folder set in TVShows and you can
manage that folder however you want. But as I said in #1, this is
not compatible with magnets. The reason is simple: with magnets
there is no torrent file, so TVShows can only launch the torrent
manager or do nothing at all, it can't go half way. On the other
hand, leaving magnets aside, if your destination folder is not
mounted TVShows could not even download a torrent file there.
For your configuration, I would suggest the following:
Activate magnets so you don't depend on access to TPB.
Keep TVShows off and manually activate it when you know the
external device is mounted.

piratebay.se is not blocked.
I do occasionally have particular episodes of shows (shameless US,
person of interest for example) that can`t be downloaded with tv
shows while the other episodes work.
Example: Person of Interest S2 E13
Unsubscribing the show and adding again does not solve this.
By the way: www.eztv.it is a
tracker specialized in tv shows. Would work as an alternative in
case PB is really blocked.
Sorry for the late reply. Is this still happening? If it is,
could you send us the log (About tab -> View logs, please paste
the content into a text file and attach it to the message) and
point out the episodes that cause the error message?
