RSS Downloader - "can't open file"


Recommended Posts

I reported on this earlier :


I DL other torrents from this feed with no problem whatsoever, however this one series; QI has quotation marks in the title.

Until today, I hadn't realised it was the only one.

The Dawn French series is one I don't usually DL but when I tried to do so manually from the RSS Downloader, the problem crept up again.


I think you can call this confirmed.

I believe I have found the cause.

At the very least I have found a pattern.

ANY attempt to use the RSS Downloader to DL a torrent that has quotation marks in the title fails either in automatic or manual mode.

The following are the two that refuse to DL from the RSS Downloader, taken from the RSS feed that I belong to:
