How to automatically download TV Shows using bit torrent

This ones a pretty quick post just to go over the basics.

Steps involved:

1. Install uTorrent

You can download utorrent from www.utorrent.com

Simply download and install like any other app.  Be careful not to install the bloatware that comes with it (There’s tick boxes during the install.

2. Configure RSS Feeds for TV Shows

There are a few feeds you can add.  The two main ones are:

To add these to utorrent – Right click on feeds on the left hand side and in the box displayed paste in one of the above links and press ok.  You can repeat this step a number of times to add both or more if you find them.

3. Right click on feeds on the left and select update feed.

4. Once the list of shows currently in the list populates, right click on a favorite and select add to favorites.  This will then present another dialogue box where you can fine tune some settings.  Typically changing the show name to remove the release group is a good idea and replacing spaces with question marks works as well as an asterisk at the end of the show name.  for example NCIS LA S01E01 would change to NCIS?LA*

After about a week of monitoring the feed you will have a list of favorites and your tv shows will become a set and forget type of affair.

As always, any questions, feel free to ask.

Cheers

  1. Hiya Jim, wanted to let you know of a couple of cool programs that you might be interested in for managing TV shows. And also let you know that the caller ID is still working great thanks to you!

    Anyway, Sickbeard will let you subscribe to your favorite shows and download them and organized them. It’s pretty slick! There is also one called Couch Potato for movies. I use them with SabNzbd and newsgroups, but I’m pretty sure they will also work the torrents.

    Anyway, just wanted to pop in and say hi, and thanks, and maybe help with your shows!

    • Hi Ken, Thanks for the comment. Glad your callerid is working great too.

      They’re all great apps. There’s also headphones for music. Books for ebooks and gamez for wii games 🙂
