Download Station Stops Downloading - with Fix

Every few days when I add new torrents, Download Station does not download them. They just sit there doing nothing. I found two ways to fix this, hopefully there will be a software update soon.

Fix 1: In Download Station go to, Settings, BT, PT, Change "Software" to any other setting besides custom. Hit Apply. Wait a few minutes and it will download again.
Fix 2: Restart Download Station from the App Center. (This is longer to do than Fix 1).

Anyone else seeing this?

I'm not seeing this issue either. DS is working the way it should do for me.

I have this problem

I have been doing the fix where you close download station and start it up again. I have had this problem for as long as I can remember!

Just got a new firmware today, March 17, version 4.3.6.0883. Going to see if this makes any difference. Interesting someone else is also having the issue, glad I'm not alone! :)

I'm still experiencing the same issue on TS-453Be running latest firmware (4.4.1.1117) and Download Station (5.6.3.152). When there are no ongoing download tasks and I add e.g. new torrent magnet links to be downloaded, they stay stuck with the "Downloading metadata" status unless I use one of the workarounds mentioned in the original post. Then, once the initial download tasks have started, adding new ones work fine. But, after all the tasks have finished and Download Station has been idle for some time, downloading new links stop working again.

I got the NAS a couple of months ago and for the first few weeks everything worked fine but then the problem appeared (probably right after either performing a FW update or updating the Download Station app/service). Anyone have any suggestions how to get the issue properly fixed for good, without needing to change the software (under Settings -> BT -> PT) or restarting the Download Station service every time I want to start downloading something.
