I've never seemed to be able to get this running completely without a hitch.
Recently, I thought I'd cracked it, and had a few programmes set up for series download.
However, when I reviewed what was actually available for viewing, random episodes were missing. These were NOT episodes that had either expired, or not yet been broadcast. E.g. in a series of ten, 3 and 8 might be missing. The missing ones are not shown as available, available soon, or expiring. They're not in the alphabetical list of everything, either.
However, if I try to manually download them as individual episodes, it reports they're already on my disk, and it won't download them again! I cannot locate and delete the offending files - which are presumably corrupted - because the file naming conventions bear no resemblance to the actual programme names, so I can't tell which of the many downloads in my iPlayer library are the ones I need to bin.
Add to that, it looks as if several (most?) of those that do show as available for viewing are corrupt too, because when I try to play them, it says: "There was a problem with this download". It then disappears from the "available" list. Again, I cannot manually redownload, because it thinks it's already there.
Any help on how I can correctly identify and remove the damaged downloads? Or do I need to purge the whole library, and begin again? (This would probably take me over my broadband usage allowance).
