    I get the following error when I try and download.



    This has happened with all of the torrents I have tried to download (both from Supernova and torrentz.com). I'm still not entirely sure what it means

    If you're using Supernova, some of the mirrors have not updated their pages. All you need to do is click on the refresh button and try it again. You may need to do this 4 or 5 times until you find a mirror that works.

    I think I fixed mine. BT doesn't seem to like my proxy (or at least it started downloading after I'd disabled it).
