Thanks folks. It's confusing . Half the people who reported (some by email) on this tote continuity issue reported all was well with the latest test version - no stalling. The other half (reported above) reported no change - still a problem. This is the most difficult thing to debug - when I cannot duplicate a problem.

I'll keep on poking at it.

Re fetching TwinSpires Mutuels from button on Rx screens not working - TS changes things subtly, breaks stuff. I'm almost finished the change where login to TS is no longer required for quick Mutuels. Meanwhile, as Bill and Barb say - fetch them from the same Mutuels button on the Entries screen.

OK, I have several examples now on my own computers of the tote stalling bug. I will get to the bottom of it!

re-downloading data

You could try un-checking "Don't Duplicate Tasks" under the tasks list. That should allow a new download.

Clinton, you don't need to re-download anything from TrackMaster, and it won't help. All you need to do is Re-assemble the race(s) you're interested in: on the Card Summary screen, right-click the race to re-assemble (like the message says to the right of the buttons). If you have already Assembled All the races, click the Clear Cache button, the click the Assemble All button).

The time of your post - 1:33am - is the key to the problem. At the time in the early morning, TwinSpires has not yet posted the next day's ProfitLine or Prime Power numbers for tomorrow's races - the available ratings are still TODAY's, plus yesterday's races' tote info is usually still available.

RDSS knows to not fetch Oct 21 TwinSpires Ratings if it is not yet Oct 21, but as soon as it IS Oct 21 (i.e. midnight in whatever timezone you're in) - it does. But that early in the day it is getting YESTERDAY's ratings, not the proper CURRENT day. In my testing, the TwinSpires Ratings become available sometime after 5am Eastern Time. Before then, it's iffy which ones you'll get.

In a future version (next one?) I must check more specifically that we don't fetch tote or TS Ratings info that don't belong explicitly to the correct race (correct date). And I have added a button to the next version I'm testing which simply refreshes the TS Ratings without having to re-assemble a race (which loses your paceline selections and Contender groupings).

Again, just re-assemble the races in question - after about 5am or so, that will fetch TODAY's TS Ratings and clear out tote values from yesterday.
