Re: The BitTorrent Helper Thread

I was going to up "Till We Dance Away" any thoughts as to the correct year to put it in? Nothing is dated post 1999, but I can't really see putting it in there either.

    thanks alot and sorry for me being so utterly confused!

    carl.

    Re: The BitTorrent Helper Thread

    Carl,

    If I am reading your post correctly, you can download shows but are not uploading anything to anyone else. So when you are done grabbing a show you are 100% done and your share ratio is 0.

    Make sure to start with that there are others downloading the show too, if you are the only one grabbing it there would be no one else to share with. Find a show with as many seeders and leechers as possible, hop on, and you should begin down and upping data right away.

    If this does now work I would reset my router to its base state in case something done to it is the problem, try different torrent software (I have tried three and found Utorrent the best for me), make sure there are no settings in your torrent program that are set to prevent you from uploading, like max upload rate being set to zero, stuff like that. Check your firewall is not the problem by turning it off for a few minutes, the windows firewall too...

    Basically, I would start over with both my hardware and new software and try again. When I started, I messed with ports and stuff like that and it was totally unneccessary and a huge headache. On Utorrent and the others you can do a port check to make sure ports are open. Sometimes I have to restart my computer too if everything did not hook up right.

    Good Luck.

    Re: The BitTorrent Helper Thread

    There is, shn and flac are the two compressed formats you'll have to deal with.

    It depends on what type of files you download and what you plan on doing with them as to how to proceed. I convert SHN files to wav. with mkw audio compression tool (search on internet for download from etree) and listen to them on winamp. I burn with winamp too once they are wav. to cd. Winamp also outright plays flac files (no conversion neccessary), and converts them to wav when burning for a cd.

    For anything Apple related or to load on an ipod, I have no idea. I own a boombox.

    I mean, I don't wanna sound like I'm being a whiner and crying for someone to give me these shows, but I would like to let people know that there is a bit of a demand for them (at least one person ).

    So...what should I do? Post in the 2005 torrent forum and ask for the show? Or just be patient and see if it gets torrented naturally?

    Cheers
    Just wanted to re-post my question and see if anyone has an answer this time. Thanks

    Cheers

    Did you follow the Torrent FAQ? When you re-download the torrent file and open it up with your torrent program, you have to point to the folder that the show lives on on your hard drive - that way it knows you've already downloaded it, and will begin seeding.

    Re: The BitTorrent Helper Thread

    Can using a university's ethernet prevent me from port forwarding. I used to have no problem with bittorrent, but now I can't connect to anything and I'm thinking I'm screwed because I'm pretty sure I can't change my ports since I'm not in control of the router.

    Any advice or am I utterly and completely screwed?

    You might be out of luck - lots of schools are doing this now.
