Greetings, all BitTorrent fanatics and gurus. I'm having trouble downloading a torrent, and I don't understand why. The torrent appears to have multiple seeds, yet the availability, and hence the download, is stuck at 0.971. The torrent in question is "Safe.House.S01.1080p.BluRay.x264-KEEPERS[rartv]" (the one shown on top in the screenshot). As can be seen in this torrent's Trackers tab, its Peer Exchange row lists 5 seeds and 117 peers, and its Distributed Hash Table (DHT) row lists 4 seeds and 58 peers. Thus, I'm surprised and baffled that the torrent's availability remains (and has always been) only 0.971. How can this be? The BitTorrent User Manual's glossary defines a seed as "A peer with 100% of the data in the torrent contents." 100%—Doesn't this mean that even a single seed would provide a torrent access to everything it needs to reach full (1.000) availability? Perhaps I'm missing something? Please, BitTorrenters who know more than I, help me understand, or even better, let me know if there's something I can do to get the final bit (pun intended!) of this torrent downloaded. Thank you!
Hello, I'm a new BitTorrent user, apologies if I'm missing something obvious. I'm trying to download some files, but upon adding them to the client the arrow next to the file name immediately turns red; the progress bar remains at 0%. The availability bar is also red. Under "trackers" dht, peer exchange, and local peer discovery are not allowed. I'm using a comcast internet service with an ethernet cable hooked up to my Macbook (OS X Yosemite 10.10) and the firewall is at minimum which should allow for peer to peer applications. Been looking around the web, but would appreciate some direct help here. LMK if you need more info or if something is unclear. Thank you!
