Change your selection from automatic downloading to manual only and everything will be solved. This way, you will have the control, not the device. Your choice of course. But it will definitely resolve your current issue. Very warm regards Martin

When you import the streams back to the device, the device will see all episodes, even those previously downloaded as being brand new. Thus, if you have it set  to automatic downloading, it will want to download the latest new episodes (i.e., episodes you already downloaded) and will keep wanting to do sow until those are no longer marked as new). Hope that helps!
