Hi, I just finished downloading a video torrent here and I have a wee problem.

As the torrent was downloading, I was uploading at a fair rate, and it continued seeding nicely until I turned the computer off for a while to cool down.

I've had the computer back on for half an hour after the break, and now that I'm seeding the completed torrent I'm not connecting to any of the leechers.

This isn't the first time that it's happened to me. I'm using Transmission on a Mac by the way, if that explains anything.

Any ideas? Thanks in advance for any suggestions.

You need to give the tracker an 'announce' period in order to update the stats in the thread. That is about an hour or so. It looks to me like you are seeding. However, you need to be aware that there are several seeds (17) and only a few leechers (4), so you aren't going to necessarily get a lot of transfer.

Thanks Lynne for the reply.

Yup, after an hour or so business picked up and I'm seeding away. Cheers!

Thanks also for being discreet and not mentioning what a dreadfully unhip DVD I downloaded :)
