Thanks for keeping us posted regarding the difficulties you have experienced. Although the issue the original poster had mentioned was resolved, eBay recently changed a number of their categories including the categories for vinyl records on the eBay US and UK sites and we had to update our system accordingly.
An update was completed earlier today to pick up the latest category changes earlier today but, after it was complete, we found that the Item Condition values for the vinyl records categories had also changed and that our system did not reflect the new Item Condition values for these categories.
As a result, we had to run another update to pick up the new Item Condition values for the vinyl records categories and the part of that update for the eBay US site has just completed. Therefore, you should now be able to select "New" or "Used" when listing in category # 176985 on the Ebay US site.
We are still working on addressing the similar issue that is impacting the vinyl records categories on the eBay UK site and will make the new Item Condition values for those categories show up for selection within Auctiva as soon as possible.
We apologize for the inconvenience these issues have caused. If you notice any other problems related to these recent category changes, please contact us by mousing over the "Help" tab and selecting the "File Support Case" option.
