    Hi Aun,

    It’s been about 6 months since I last used d4x and was wondering if you would you be able to confirm if these are still issues with the app?

    * If you change the default download folder it doesn’t remember the change
    * The slowest download speed is 100bytes/sec. This is acceptable but having no download action until my off-peak time would be better (note that I don’t want to close the app because I regularly add stuff to my download list ready for the off-peak period).
    * Unable to get it to download an m4v file from a podcast. When I add the m4v file to the list d4x immediately flags it as complete but nothing’s been downloaded.

    Thank you.
