Since the update that added HEVC options it seems that MCM is downloading more x264 content than before even though HEVC is specified and the downloads are available. Every day I'm having to manually redownload 80% of my shows in HEVC becasue MCM is grabbing the larger x264 versions.

From Utorrent today
Image

HEVC versions are available for all these shows. Only showing the one, but all the others are the same.

Settings:
I was hoping there would be a new "Prefer HEVC, download in x264 after 24 hours" option here or something similar.
Image

Tried to force HEVC to be the 720HD preference, but it doesnt seem to be working as it still downloads x264 more often than HEVC.
Image
HEVC settings on the new HEVC tab.

Is there any better way to have MCM prefer HEVC downloads over x264?

Thanks

Check my response to your question about HEVC preference here:

Additionally, update to today's patch that fixes issues with both ThePirateBay and Kickass Torrents.

After today's update its much better and downloading mostly HEVC. Still 20% where it grabs x264 where HEVC is available. Had to manually correct 3 out of 15 downloads.

Example:

PirateBay Search

Added to Utorrent by MCM.

But that I can live with!
Thanks for the update.

Was it skipped due to low seeding?

Minimum seed requirements: 10 for movies 3 for episodes

So should not have skipped it. Its pretty minor though. This week I've had maybe 5 episodes that it didn't grab in HEVC and I had to add manually. So its working great again. I can live with the occasional one I need to re-add manually :)
