Click Add from the main interface, select a TV show from the list to download or use the search bar on top to locate TV shows and episodes for. You can go through this list to search for new episodes, download old ones and to find a related DVD. Check the Download in HD check box to get the best quality episodes.
New episodes can be checked from right-click menu, for added series. You can also set an automatic schedule for finding new episodes.
For more options, head over to the Extra drop down menu and select Preferences. The General tab can be used to schedule searching for new episodes after a time interval, e.g. every 60 minutes, managing the default folder (or path) for the downloaded Torrent file and so on.
