Kinja is in read-only mode. We are working to restore service. Is there anyway you can explain further on what to do, this has gotten me intrigued. Flagged Sure. Past this, I'll have to go from memory since I don't have uTorrent here on my work computer, but if you right click on the feed, you can go to the RSS Downloader. Anyway, let's say I want to download How I Met Your Mother, which comes on monday nights. Let me know if you need anything else. [] Regardless if you use their RSS, this FAQ is what I used to setup my RSS downloader. Have at least a dozen shows plugged in, usually gets the show about 30-40 minutes after the episode airs . So I was just referring back to this article to set up a new media center at home and I came across this posting of yours. Do you happen to have any invites to your private tracker?

Sync multiple XBMC media libraries including Raspbmc | - Neil Broers If you have more than one XBMC installation on your network, centralising your media library has many benefits: Your watched / unwatched statuses are shared between media centresYou can watch a video in one room and continue watching it in another – without needing to find your place (in theory :))You only have one library that needs to be updated The basic steps towards setting this up: Make sure all your media is shared so that it is available to all PC’s on your networkChange all the paths in your media library to point to the shares instead of a local file systemSet up a MySQL server that contains your library data that all your XBMC installations can connect toConfigure all your XBMC installations to use the MySQL server for it’s library data The process is very well documented on the XBMC wiki, but there is one very important point to note – and this is especially relevant if you are using Raspbmc on a Rasperry Pi – Your XBMC versions must all be the same!

Five Best DVD-Ripping Tools @diabillic: There's a less expensive version of the CinemaCraft encoder (CCE) that does most of what the pricey one does (just limits the number of passes). For those curious, the point here is that most re-encoders don't so much re-encode as drop macro blocks, resulting in a picture that's not as good as it could be. CCE (the pro version) is AFAIK the product used by the studios. If this sounds interesting, I'd suggest checking out DVD Rebuilder ([]) which sits "on top" of CCE and drives the process (CCE's pretty arcane to learn DVDRB is easy). It also supports some free encoders, notably HCEncoder, which claims to work as well as CCE. Finally, you get the option to include filters in the video production stream. Finally, this is a re-encoder, not a ripper. @bobkoure: Yep, couldnt have said it better myself. I'm gonna check out that Rebuilder link, thanks for the info.

How to Turn Your Computer Into the Ultimate Remote Access Media Server Golf clap for this article. "clap, clap." Nicely done. Key points to be emphasized: a) Running a server on many "home" ISP connections may be against the Terms of Service in your ISP contract. b) Using plain FTP (port 21) is crazy even with a password, unless you are publishing all the content for the world to have. c) VNC (any form) is not encrypted. d) If you are using HTTP, you probably plan to allow the world access to your files. e) Only ssh/sftp (port 22) out of all the choices in the article above, should be used externally. f) If you do open any external ports, make your life easier and on the outside, use a non-standard port and let your router forward to the internal "standard port" for your.
