Well... at this point I pretty much given up on Transmission.

Me too, after several frustrating months quitting and restarting Transmission ormaking sure I don't exceed a couple of simultaneous torrents, I'm now using qBittorrent. I don't like its interface and somehow it only downloads at a fraction of Transmission speeds, but at least I can let it running without any fear of my active connections to stop suddenly.

I wonder if this is actually a Big Sur issue. I'm still on Catalina and have notice recently that the chosen port gets closed after a while and Transmission grinds to a halt. If I click "Randomize", Transmission eventually finds an open port and resumes transfers. I gave up on a Little Snitch and uninstalled it several months ago, so that's not the problem. I'm using an AirPort Extreme with "Enable NAT Port Mapping Protocol" enabled. This is with Transmission 3.0. I did not see this problem on prior versions.

What other apps are people using and how are they transferring their transmission half downloaded torrents to a new app?

Im getting the same problems.
I add a torrent, it downloads a bit then stops downloading. It doesnt crash and I dont get the beachball but I have to quit and relaunch it otherwise it will just sit there doing nothing. When I relaunch, it starts downloading the torrents from 0%, even though it just downloaded some before and the part files are still there in the same folder.
Its really strange behaviour. I really hope they fix it soon. Its so bad that I cant use it any more. I cant remember the last time I used anything other than transmission. It must be ten years ago at least.
The client Im using now sucks.
Does anyone have a recommendation for a decent lightweight client to replace Transmission till they sort it out?

For whatever it might be worth, I'm merrily running Transmission v3.0 on Big Sur on an M1 iMac. 1,248 torrents.
