      Scheduled downloads

      Hi guys.

      I'm having a problem with some of my downloads, whenever i set more than one at the same time.

      So let's say it's episode 1 & 2 of something from catch-up.
      Episode 1 will start downloading while episode 2 shows as scheduled.
      At the moment episode 1 completes & episode 2 should start downloading, episode 2 will fail at 0% with the message 'subscription needed'.

      This has happened 5 or 6 times in the last 3 weeks despite trying a planner rebuild & power cycle.
      Strangely on every occasion, all that's been required is to highlight the failed episode in the planner & 'press the record button to resume download' & all will be fine.

      It's not such a problem now i know to expect it, however because those failed ones are invariably in a stack with the successful one, there's no indication that the failure has occurred until the stack is entered at which point the programme may have expired from on demand.

      The only difference in the last few weeks my end that i can think of is that my hard drive has been fuller than usual.
      I currently have 29% free & have never, ever left a single programme in the deleted folder (a pointless feature in IMO).

      Has anyone else experienced this?

      I'll take that as a no then.

      After updating to R011 & with 36% HDD space now available, i deleted 2 of the downloads where the problem occurred previously & both programmes downloaded fine without the fail on the 2nd programme.
