Unfortunately it won't work in your example:


It needs a direct link to a .torrent file to download, not a link to
some other page from which you can obtain the file.

I no longer use this feature either because I don't have a suitable
RSS feed that posts direct links to the files. In fact my episode
history file hasn't been updated since June last year. Nowadays I just
use it to copy my completed downloads to my Videos share on my Server.

Unfortunately my main PC died the other week and I haven't resurrected
it. Hardware Relief Fund Donations welcomed... Got to decide on a
repair strategy first. Anyway, I don't have the setup to test that at
the moment, but it's clearly not liking something it sees in one of
the message blocks.

It looks at them all to detect the ones it likes. It reads them into
xAPNewsReportFeedBlock objects so it can look for the data it wants,
but it doesn't like some of the blocks it's seeing.

If you could post the complete message it should include a sample
message that caused the error? I can then figure out the problem. Or a
URL to a problem RSS feed if you have enough information in the error
message to see what's up. 2x click the entry and it ought to expand
upon the error.

My Completion Monitoring is a bit more specific. For example:

Shows\Battlestar Galactica</entry>

But it'll only work if you manually go and get the .torrent file as
mentioned. The completion monitoring works a treat for me.
