Deal looks good to me although the $7 price doesn't come up before entering into paypal. Anyone else tried it and can confirm that $7 is indeed the price?

This does indeed look hot.

EDIT: This at no point at all tells you it is reducing the price, even when you go through to paypal. Even worse, it gives you a page saying loads of stuff about continuos payments, then says you can confirm on the next page - yet the next page takes you back to newsdemon saying you've paid! VERY VERY annoying system, however it did only charge me £4.44......

#12
I still have credit on my astraweb account (PAYG), so will set this up as my new secondary server and relegate astraweb to my third. My primary is always virgin anyway.
#13
I often wonder about the privacy statements of these companies.

They use 256-Bit SSL Encrypted Connections which is pretty much uncrackable, and they will never track usage unless required by law. What does law require in terms of tracking in the UK? And even if required what would be the point if it is so highly encrypted?

Are the talking nonce and you will all get charged for downloading old Spice Girls tracks?
#14
Cheers op I'll have some of this
#15
For me it said £4.50 on website but has charged me £6.16.

That would be Gary glitter then ;)

Damnit, they do free accounts for educational/charity/selected media staff. I work for a college, bah! Ah well, £4 a month aint bad anyway, applied for a free one though regardless.

I did, I have tried both coupons. Despite the website saying £4.45 I was billed £6.16 and £9.53 buy paypal.
#21
Paid using Worldpay and the price was £4.44.

Logged into the account and it says it's a 1 month account. I suspect the price will be different next month.
#22
Sorry but just what do I get for this ?

Say I want a movie, I hit Pirate Bay or elsewhere and get it in a few minutes to a couple of hours. What does this give me over that ?
#23
I got it for this price in the end. They refunded both payments. I then cleared history and this time the coupon was visible where details are entered.

Faster, more reliable servers that use SSL to stop people seeing what you download. Its all been pretty much covered in the astraweb deal
#25
if you sign into your account then go into cancel account it states that your account is discounted by 65% and if you cancel you will lose that discount, therefore i assume that i will only be billed £4.44 next month and in subsequent months to come.
#26
Sure my email said £4.44/month for life?

Right guys

I'm on the scrounge for advice and guidance. I used to use utorrent for downloading files but haven't used it for about 12 months as I got fed up with slow downloads and poor quality content.

I looked at the astraweb thread and nearly signed up for that but this deal seems even better.

I've signed up but now need to get myself up to speed on the whole newsgroup way of doing things. If someone wants to send me a quick PM outlining the best way of doing things it would be great. I'm thinking of using Grabit as others have said its fairly easy to use. I also know I need to upgrade my plusnet account as I'm on their lite package at the moment which throttles downloads quite badly. I'll up it to the next one which should give me decent download speeds over night.

I think my next purchase will have to be either an xtreamer ultra or a Revo to connect directly to the telly.

I'm no expert but I use sabnzbd and nzbmatrix.

Thanks for that Gav. Did you try news rover that comes as a freebie with newsdemon or did you just go straight for sabnzbd?

Is it all quite easy to get set up. I had a mare setting up port forwarding for torrents but understand that's something I don't need to worry about with usenet.

I've just upgraded my Plusnet package so might try to download something overnight and see how it works.
#31
I already has sabnzbd but did have a look at newsrover, it didnt look very sexy so stuck with sabnzbd.

Right guysI'm on the scrounge for advice and guidance.

I'm in the middle of writing a guide for my local forum, but I'll post here what I type there as well. The original posts can be found here: http://www.staffordforum.com/viewtopic.php?pid=105340#p105329


OK, will try to keep this brief but informative! There are 3 things you need:

1. A provider to get the stuff from
2. A way to find the specific stuff you want
3. Software to download the stuff

Providers
There are loads of providers, and most do a similar job. The main things to look for are security, retention and download limits. For security I'd say always look for someone that offers an SSL connection, as this means people can't track what you download. Retention is the amount of time they keep 'stuff' for, the big boys are now offering over 900 days. This means you have 900 days from when someone puts the stuff online to grab it, unlike torrents where things depend on their popularity. The download limit is obvious, some only let you get so many GBs a month but charge less for it. Depends on how much you plan on grabbing.
To be honest I'd look at using a free one though to test it all out, or some providers offer free trials. If you get your broadband through Virgin then they have a completely free server, but its not encrypted and they remove pirated stuff within a few weeks.

Search sites
There are loads of these, some free and some paid for. Everybody has their favourites, I personally tend to stick to nzbmatrix, but I'm sure others will offer their own. You use these sites to find something you want, and then download the relevant nzb file. This is just like a torrent, it tells your software where to look for the files you want.

Software
This is where it all ties together, the software looks at the nzb file to see what is needed, then uses your provider to get it. Therefore this is the bit that requires setting up properly to make it all work. I'll use SABNZB as my example, as its what I use myself. For anything I miss out, or don't cover very well, they have a quick setup guide.

Download the software from their home page, then run it. It will install and ask you a few options, which will depend on how you wish to use it. For most people I'd say yes to associating with nzb files, yes to the desktop icon and no to the start when windows does. The reason for this is that you'll probably only want to be downloading when you're not doing anything else, as it can max out your connection. You'll then need to choose language, theme (I use plush), if you want to be able to access it from other computers (more secure not to, but way more useful if you can. This can let you setup downloads from your phone etc. which I'll cover another time).

Now you need to setup the server, which is the provider you went with in step 1. You will need the server, port number and login details if required - virgin doesn't seem to need one but most do. For an example virgins settings are:

server: news.virginmedia.com
port: 119

There is a 'test server' button at the bottom which will tell you if it works. If it does then you're pretty much done. The SABNZB software will restart IIRC, but once its back on you need to go to the config menu at the top and go to folders. This sets up where stuff goes as you download, I always make a main folder called 'Downloads' wherever I plan on dumping the stuff, then make a 'Complete' and 'Incomplete' folder within it. Set the temporary download folder to Incomplete, and the completed folder to Completed.

That 'should' be it! To test it download an nzb file from somewhere and it should go straight to SABNZB. I'm off out now but will update this later with a few more search sites and anything I've missed. Hope this is of help to some.
#33
Thanks for that tek Monkey. Think I've cracked it. I've followed your steps and all appears to be working.
#34
Happy to help :)

Have made two more posts to the other forum, will repeat them here too.

I can't see any free trials offhand, which is strange as everyone used to do it! Giganews do one that you can cancel within the first 14 days for free but thats not quite the same. In this case I'd suggest looking at your ISPs free offerings first (as said earlier I use Virgin as my primary server), and maybe buy a block of data for the things they don't have. Newsdemon do 50Gb for £6ish, or 200Gb for £14ish. If you are just having a look go for a small block til you know you'll use it, I expect you will though.

So, you can download stuff, but its no better than torrents really is it? Well yes it is, they run at full speed all the time and the files are always available if within the retention limit (around 910 days at present and always growing). Things also get reposted, there are lots of old files still being put online, so the date of actual release isn't too relevant. So what else can this software do? If set up correctly you can control it through your phone for a start (or indeed anywhere with a net connection), you can set it to read RSS feeds should you have a site that provides them (nzbmatrix does), meaning you can bookmark a file and it just downloads at home even without external access to your PC. You can also run addons that search for you, grabbing the latest files you specify as and when they are released. I'll go into this in my next post as I have to dash again.

There are many more things you can do, but I need to reinstall them myself first before I can offer advice as its been a while! The most useful 2 I can remember are:

Sickbeard lets you choose a TV series, and IIRC HD or SD copies, and it goes off and finds all the episodes for you. You can either just let it grab new ones, or ask for entire past series. It buggers off and finds them, then integrates with SABNZB to start the downloads. No interaction whatsoever from yourself, when new stuff appears on usenet it appears in your completed folder.

CouchPotato is the same but for movies, tell it a film you want and it tries to work out what it is (not sure how, maybe IMDB? Been a while). You then tell it what type of copy, from cam to ful DVDRip, and as it appears online it starts the download. I had something sat in here for 3 months that I'd forgotten about and then suddenly its waiting for me to watch when I got home from work, again fully integrates with SABNZB for the downloads.

With these 2 apps you are suddenly a lot less reliant on search websites, and also on remembering when something comes out.

Hope this all helps someone :)

Really pleased with this so far but not having any joy installing sickbeard, seems a right nightmare to set up.

I'll have a look when I get a chance, I do remember it being a bit weird!
