I have read about some people having that problem. The fix is supposed to be reset kodi/ and or your device. Hope that helps

*** Please disregard this post as a fix was found and posted in the following post ***

thanks TonyH but that didn't work. NONE of my covenant installs will allow me to download. i do the exact same process as i would in exodus but after i click to get streams i am unable to right click mouse/long click on the remote to bring up the context menu. if i do this on say a movie listing before i click to get streams, i get the context menu to be able to look at info, trakt manage or auto play for example.

found the fix in another thread only posted up yesterday ... just looked at the time stamps and was posted only 4 hours ago

I have not been able to get the download function to work yet.  I set it up in tools but when I right-click on a stream nothing happens.  Is there a different way to get the menu screen for a stream?  Thanks in advance.

Pretty sure you need to change some settings in Covenant:

1 Turn on DIRECTORY mode in the PLAYBACK settings



2 Setup DOWNLOADS by turning it on and then establishing a path for both movies and tv shows



Now when you select a movie/show select the stream you want to download by right clicking or using a keyboard letter "C" or by long pressing with the ENTER key or mouse pointer or finger. Context menu will not appear for a stream in any mode except Directory mode. Now the Context menu will magically appear with the word Download on it. Click it to start the download.

I usually try playing the stream 1st to avoid crappy videos or streams that may not work.
