version 5.6.1.0 bugs and missing options

Postby downjones » Sun Sep 10, 2017 6:42 pm

I use Windows 10 pro... whether you run PT as administrator or not, following bugs are occurring:

1. the settings menu does not remember my personal settings, whenever I untick the check boxed to my preference it always jumps to default upon restart of the PT.

2. also the file size for the download of the preferred quality is nowhere indicated, I don't know where it is a bug or a missing feature, especially if am using a mobile data plan I would like to see how much data am consuming while watching movie in a preferred quality, also I realised that some movies even in 720p quality are a whopping 3.5 GB in size, while I have movies in 720p quality around 960mb in size, maybe you should add options also for DVD quality to reduce size for mobile device users ;)

3. I also would like to point out that the option sort by 'rating' is missing completely :roll:

4. the automatic update service should be a manual option... after installation I realised that and update.exe is running automatically while restart my PC, such thing shall be optional in the settings menu, or better is to include a 'check for update' button in the settings menu which will simply check if newer version is available. Also more settings for advanced users would be a big plus to this program 8-)

Thanks for your awesome work and hopefully all these little things will be improved with the next update. :mrgreen:

Thank you for your quick response, it's appreciated. :)
I hope all these issues which I have addressed are going to be resolved in the next update for the PC and mobile version.

Is there any time indication possible on the next release? :mrgreen:
