For you Mac nerds out there, there is Automatic. It simply downloads the torrent files into a specified folder, and you have to manually point your torrent client of choice to automatically add the downloaded torrent files to the Queue. Works like a charm for me.

Example: Using Automatic + Transmission BT Client, this is how I have it setup.

and for the Penguins there is a FlexGet "config.yml" script:
Code:
feeds:
  Top Gear:
    rss:
      url: "http://feeds.feedburner.com/finalgeartorrents"
      ascii: true
    series:
      - top gear
    download: ~/.rtorrent/watch/
and there is part for HD content (not to actual at the moment):
Code:
  Top Gear BTChat:
    rss:
      url: http://rss.bt-chat.com/?group=229
      ascii: true
    regexp:
      reject:
        - russia
        - australia
        - avi
        - fifth gear
    series:
      - top gear:
          quality: 720p
      - special:
          min_quality: 720p
    download: ~/.rtorrent/watch/

Is there a way to make it only download the 720p version when it comes out?

Depends on what program you're using, but basically you just have to add 720p to the regex.

in the guide it references a mac app called Automatic, which lines up and downloads the files from the RSS. i looked it up, and it's $19.99. i was wondering whether there was another app which accomplished the same task for free.

Hey Viper I think you should mention this thread on the main page so people don't rape the server constantly refreshing. I'm betting over 90% of the people don't know that you can get RSS feeds for the torrents so it'd help take a fair bit of load off the server if they could just get the torrent directly through their client.

Server load isn't an issue. :)

+2. Having an RSS feed for the HD versions of Top Gear would be amazing. Then I can have all the latest ones to watch in shiny HD goodness when I get back from vacation :)

+3 to a HD RSS feed. The time difference between the UK/US isn't kind to us Aussies who have to manually queue it up at about 8-9am Monday morning.

Hi everyone, I hope someone can help me with setting up RSS feeds using uTorrent version 2.0.4 to download Top Gear America & Britain. I have followed the example given at the start of this thread and because I am using a newer version it is a little different but manage to get it all set up. So the problem I have is that does not download the current ep of TGA even tho its there when I click on the set up rss bit on the left of screen. I then right click on it in the main window and select download only to get a window that says ?unable to load TGA S01E02 ect : invalid torrent file! What am I doing wrong? It sounds so easy but I cant get it to work.
PS If I knew how to add a screen shot I would.

Thanks everyone.
