    I can only download episodes manually

    Android 5.1, BeyondPod 4.1.27

    I am able to only download this specific feed's episodes manually. The feed is a paid subscription that has a password entered in the advanced settings.

    Podcast assigned to "Entertainment" category. Category is set update at 6:00 p.m. Doesn't download episodes.

    Feed is set to download latest episodes, download 20 episodes, keep at most 25 episodes and delete episodes older than 5 days.

    When viewing feed in My Episodes view, and I pull to refresh, it seems to only check for new episodes without downloading new episodes which are available. The same thing happens when I pull to update the Entertainment category.

    It is not set to download while plugged in only, and it is not set to download on WiFi only. Use mobile data is checked.

    I am at a lost at what I am doing wrong.

    Hi Norbert

    The first three obvious questions are
    1. Do you have the paid version of BeyondPod?
    2. Do episodes from other feeds download automatically?
    3. What does the feed update log say about why they didn't download?

    1. yes
    2. yes they do in other categories, but not in the Entertainment category. They only show the download arrow, but do not download automatically.
    3. Says "no new remote episodes." This would be true since new episodes are released only on weekdays.

    It seems to be doing a feed only update, and if I understand it correctly this happens when the feed view is set to "all published." However, my default view is "my episodes."

    I wish BeyondPod cared a little more about customer support. No reply on this since 8-1-15. I emailed tech support with my log files a week ago and have received no reply.

    Is it by any chance TAW?

    If so, there has been a LOT of activity to fix this bug, and you'll find the fix in beta version 4.1.46 at http://www.beyondpod.mobi/Android/BETA/

    Not that but it is a paid subscription: The Bob and Tom Show. Wondering why it used to work and then didn't. Just tried the beta but no joy. Still only can download episodes manually.

    Another version 4.1.47 is now available on the beta page. Could you give that a try?

    If it doesn't work, could you please post all the red (error) sections of the update log, and the URL of the feed.

    I cleared download history before starting. It did a download, but instead of the latest episodes, it downloaded random shows from 2014. I'll sending you a PM with the log.

    Could you please email it to support at beyondpod.mobi with a link to this thread instead. I won't be able to do anything much useful with it, and certainly can't fix the code.
