How does FDM decide which waiting downloads to start first?

Postby bgc » Thu Oct 13, 2011 5:31 am

I set connections to 10, sections to 10, connections per server to 10 and max running downloads to 1.

When downloading a video that is cut into 5 scenes, I would choose download scene 1, 2, 3 ..5

Until today it downloaded scene 1, then 2, then 3...

Today I did the same with 4 vids, choosing all scenes for each vid starting with 1 and then all scenes for the next vid starting with 1.

But FDM is now jumping all over the place in the waiting downloads so all the scenes aren't getting downloaded in order. I transfer the download to a tivo so they won't show up in order on the Tivo if they weren't downloaded in order in the first place, unless I go in and manually change the file attributes for the out of sequence scenes, which I don't want to have to start doing.

Why would FDM all of a sudden start downloading the scenes out of order?

Thanks,
BGC
