will the the autodownloader be able download the .torrent files to the xbox, like for example the 10 newest torrents. i usually use the bit-torrent python script to download stuff from btefnet by downloading the torrents throught linksbok and saving them on my xbox hd and then opening them with the bit-torrent python script. would be cool if i didnt have to use linksbok at all. i look forward to whatever u do and im sure it will be great. and hopefully you can add a uk site thats just as popular as btefnet!

hi. at the moment it just passes it to the abc on the computer. i have not used the torrent on the xbox. if you want i can make an option for it to download the torrent file to a local folder. that is no biggie

how about saving the torrent to a directory on a pc share? that way users of azureus can use it as well by setting it to autostart torrents form a particular directory.
either way, i'm looking forward to this script - you take your time and get it groovy :thumbsup:

how would you like it to be saved to that directory...ftp is it...or just copy the file to a samba share!! i can write the code for it but cannot test as samba does not work between my pc and xbox. there is also a web interface for azaereus i think. i may actually release the autodownloader today as that is done. the rest is going to be a gui around it...so keep an eye later in the day for the autodownoader...

well if its no trouble to save the torrents on the xbox it would be much appreciated.

i know you are getting a lot of requests but it would be great to be able to setup the script to read from multiple rss feeds.
btw... thanks for the great efforst on this. it is people like you that "make" the community a community!

thanks very much. initially the autodownloader will just read from btfnet but when i do release a proper fully fledged version next week or week after it will be able to do that.....btw i have not really started working on it yet. i'll keep ye posted on progress but i might be bust over the next few days but there will be a version in the near future

i think the easiest thing to get this working with azureus (what i use) is via ftp. the azureus web interface uses some crazy java appelet to upload torrents and i am not sure if there is an easy programatical way to access it. i usually just ftp torrents into a special folder and set azureus to scan that folder every few minutes for torrents.
the suprnova lister script on the download page has the ftp functionality in it and you could canibalize that code pretty quickly if you feel like it.

ok here is the autodownloader part of this app. there are plenty of instructions in the readme file. it will download to local dir, abc client and ftp so that should keep everybody happy!

that was quick flash, thanx for the great work.
unfortunately it wont work for me with the 15/1/2004 build of xbmc python that i have. the script says running for a second then stops. and it wont work with the python i use to run dreamboxtv( i have to use python thats months old). is there anyway to have a few different python folders with different versions of it and let the python scripts access the one that will work 4 them. as none of the older scripts seem to work with the newest python.
hopefully i get it sorted it out so i can run everything i want with the same python. thanx again
