I've noticed an increase over the past few months in getting the failed to download messages see sample after this message, which is the last error then success.

Initially before Christmas it was every so often. Jan and Feb it moved to repeat once or twice on most of the downloads with a few not an issue but all download OK. In the last couple of months it's been every file fail message twice then downloads OK. Today I had a couple with 5 fails then downloads OK.

I appreciate that the program says ignore the message if it downloads and my downloads are successful...

However I was wondering if anyone else is getting the same level of response as I am and if so, does anyone actually know why the frequency might be increasing.

Asking partly because I just like to know these sorts of things but also partly because if it's something to do with my setup I'd like to get it back to "normal".

I haven't changed the config options for about 2 years so I'm presuming it's more likely changes at the remote end. I could speculate but I'm wondering if anyone knows.
