its literally the same file....just there was a premature return in for testing the abc stuff which should have been removed. so abc connection and automatically downloading will not have worked for anyone! no chagnes other than that...

@flash: is there ever going to be an integrated downloader? that would be nice: a complete package for everything .

im using abc 2.6.9 yet another bit torrent app
what settings do i put in the mytv user settings? and abc?
my pc ip is 192.168.0.1
and xbox 192.168.0.2

integrated into what!! well i am working on a frontend that would be able to configure the autodownloader if thats what you mean.

ok start abc. go tools->web interface service
here you will have to set a port and unique key. i chose 8888 for the port and "xbox" without the quotes for the unique key. then press the start service button and thats it. set those settings in your script and put the ip as that of your pc and there you go. remove the torrents.txt file in the scripts directory if you have run it before as we want to run cleanly again and if your config matchs and shows you should see them automatically start downloading in your abc client

into mytv, from what i understand (correct me if i'm wrong) it downloads the .torrent to the xbox, to a ftp site or to an abc client. what i ment is that it would be cool if you actually start downloading the contents of the torrent (or whatever you call them, i'm not very familiar with bit torrent, yet) with your xbox as client. this way i don't need my pc to be on to download the latest episodes of my fav tv series, for example.

hmmm that what i did... i started again and still nothing? could it be firewall?

i suppose it could be. you could choose a port on your machine that you know be accessible and try again. also if you look at the debug screen there might be some information. it might say something about connecting to the abc client. you have it set to mode_abc i'll assume. you could also try to set it to download them to a local directory just to test that everything else is working ok.

thanks anyway flash! i tried and tried then tried some more but i cannot get the abc mode working at all... it creates the torrent.txt but then how nothing on the abc client on the pc. port 8888 on both script and abc client keywork xbox on both tried loop back and auto ip on abc client. tried opening xp port for 8888 specifically and still zilch!
