Because you might be getting radio and tv from a different servers,
and one might work and the other not.

earlier you posted a bit of log file:

and this time you said:

this is inconsistent - do you download to D: or V:? Are both D: and V:
local or network drives?  If network drives, try changing your output
location to a local drive.  You can then copy/move files (after all
the processing has been done) to a permanent location using the
command option.
