HowTo: Download TV Shows

First off you should only do this if you have legal access to the shows by subscribing to cable or satellite TV.

1. Download Azureus and RSS Feeds.

2. Drag Azureus to your Applications dir. Next launch it and then quit. Now you will have an Azureus folder in ~/Library/Application Support. Drag the rssfeed_1 folder into ~/Library/Application Support/Azureus/plugins.

3. Restart Azureus select Azureus>Preferences. Under Connection set a high port number like 49167 and make sure this is forwarded through your router. Select Transfer and set the global max upload to something less than your upstream. For example if you have a 1.5/768 DSL connection set the max upload to 50. Otherwise you'll over saturate your upstream and kill you downstream speeds. Next choose Files>Torrents and select your Save Directory. Close options.

4. Now it's time to configure the RSS Feeds. Goto the Plugins menu and select RSSFeed. Then click on options and set an RSS Feed URL by click the + sign. Enter in BTEfnet as the name and as the URL check Enabled and click Accept. Now click + next to filters and enter The Daily Show for the name and daily as the filter. Then check Filter searches title and Enable then Accept.

5. Enjoy your shows with VLC or MPlayer OS X.

Screen Grab of RSS Feed URL and RSS Feed Filter.
