Recently rTorrent has been downloading corrupt files. My torrents typically range 4-10gbs. When I extract, there's a CRC error. I force re-check within the rtorrent webportal and it gets stuck at 99%. I read about the infinite pausing on the rtorrent wiki, but none of the suggested steps worked.

I've been having to recheck all my files with my computer.

I made someone excited - hooray!

Regarding hashing: I turned off hashing as most torrents in my 1.02-4.7.1 fw had the same symptom you got. Rehashing manually kept going till 99%, but all downloaded content was not corrupt at all. Check your rtorrent.rc file for more instructions.

Check hash is off
Safe sync is on.

Should i try turning both off? If i delete the torrent and reupload for a check, it works fine.

Also, the rtorrent watch folder doesnt seem to be passing on the torrents to rtorrent.

Can anyone shed some light on this?

Can you share with us your /conf/rtorrent.rc file (in code tags please!)

To my understanding, by looking at "#schedule = watch_directory,5,5,load_start=/tmp/rt/rtorrent/torrents/*.torrent", the # indicates that the schedule won't pickup any torrents, as # means "REM".

Remove the # and look how it reacts? Good luck!

PS. if you mess up your /conf/rtorrent.rc file, simply remove it and reboot your wdtv - a virgin /conf/rtorrent.rc will pop-up and you can set your paths to the corrent /tmp/mnt/... directories.
