Question The Economist not loading as Periodical

This started a few weeks ago. But The Economist intermittently is not loading as a Periodical. Sometimes it simply loads as a book instead.

Twice, I've re-downloaded and it corrected it. But most of the time that has not helped.

Any ideas or something I can check?

Loading as a periodical on SONY devices is a hack based on partial reverse engineering and may or may not work. The only setting that can control it in calibre is setting the output profile to sony under Preferences->Common Options->Page setup

I have a 950 and the output is set to 'Sony Reader 900'. Is that correct?

Tried a couple other times, and seems to always be loading as a book now. Really not a big deal, but figured I would let you know. It's also more than just The Economis, which makes sense based on what you said about the Sony's.
