I also have this problem with Download Station. No matter if I use torrent files or magnet links, they are stick in DS without downloading. I checked the same torrent files and magnet links on my desktop torrent client and they work OK. Everything used to work without any issues for more than 3 years, until the latest (around January 2016) updates. So, the issue persists with DSM 5.2-5644 Update 3 and Download Station 3.5-2970

I haven't changed any settings I used so far

Any idea how to solve this?

For what its worth...

2 NAS's latest greatest DSM and DL Station on both.
One NAS DL station working, one not (stuck waiting) prob

I didn't reboot the router (takes too long.) But did flush the NAT table - no fix
What worked for me, was deleting some jobs. I think one of them were the culprit. I didn't delete all the jobs

YMMV

So let me bump this one more time...

I haven't used Download Station in quite some time, but realized over the past couple days, nothing is downloading. Items are just listed with no activity. Previously, they were showing 'waiting' but I uninstalled/reinstalled the application and now they don't show 'waiting' but there is no activity.

I have a Synology router as well. Just installed Download Station on it and I'm getting the same 'waiting' indicator. I even reset the router back to factory defaults and still no improvement. Nothing I do seems to fix (alternative DNS, restart, etc.)

Any new ideas out there?

Same for me here.
All previous and new request for torrent download remain in Waiting status since last update (circa 28.12.2016).

Used to work ok in the past.

Any news?

I have 2 NAS :
- DS209 with the last DSM for that product : DSM 4.2-3255
- DS916+ with the last DSM : DSM 6.0.2-8451 Update 7

I want to download the same torrent. It works on the DS209, but not with the DS916+. On the DS916+, the file is waiting and download never start.

On DSM 6 I find restarting the Downloadstation service kicks things into working.

synopkg restart DownloadStation

Hi guys,

I do have the same issue. I have some torrent added by an RSS feed, and every week, I see that all my downloads are in "waiting status". I do go to Packet center and stop and relaunch the download station, then it seems that the downloads are unblocked.

But I have to do that every week, we need a solution asap.

In my case, stopping or starting the app, uninstalling and reinstalling has no effect.

My list of 46 torrents in seeding are mostly all in waiting status. This occured two weeks back when I installed update 6 of DSM 6. Only 6 are seeding and they are always the same. I cannot add any new torrent as they will all remain unknown in waiting status.

I have even tried to move my "Downloads" shared folder from Vol2 to Vol1. When I did that and restarted DS, 36 torrents got alive. I kill DS again, restarted, back with the same 6 torrents seeding. All has been working for years, modem/router did not changed. Port forwarding is configured.

Very strange and annoying, cannot download anymore.

I need help troubleshooting here please if someone has a clue.

Cheers!

I'm kind of seeing the same thing on my end. The status says "Waiting" but there should be nothing to wait on. There's space on the storage, the queue hasn't reached the max limit yet, but no new jobs are triggering themselves. Is it something I can restart?

Support found out that my DS station database was wrecked. No matter what I tried in deleting the @download folder, uninstall, install earliere versions, stopping, restartnig helped.
They deleted the database. Now it works.
