"Get torrent with passkey" problem, page 1

I  always download the torrent file using the "get torrent with passkey" so it can work on my seedbox. Unfortunately for some reason this does not work well with all torrents.
I weekly download Carl Cox's Global and Armin Van Buuren's ASOT episodes but while Global's .torrent file come with the passkey, ASOT's don't. I usually go and copy the tracker with the passkey from one and replace the ones in the other.

editing the .torrent file this is what I can see:

asot with passkey:

I've tried, rtorrent, utorrent and qbittorrent all with the same result, they ignore the first tracker with the passkey on the list.

This is something that has been happening for quite some time but I'm reporting it now since I've got some free time to do it. :wink:

I obviously replaced my actual passkey with #mypasskey#.

fixed.

you've literally done all the research above.. answer was simple. clients would favor 'announce_list' over 'announce' in torrents, and while some torrents would have only 1 announce url, others could have 2 announces (both for torrents and releases), and my code in that case would just change announce, while list was left unchanged, thus problems. check global torrent has no 'announce-list' in it...

thanks for reporting..
