I'm a trying... It just seems like I can never catch up kinda thing... Like on Doctor Who 1080i - Ive been seeding for the past week and upped 102mb on a 1.7gb dl =/

Am i missing something really obvious? Or is it just get in there early?

You'd be best getting in on torrents that are newly uploaded. Stuff which is already well seeded is hard to seed for us in the UK as our upload speeds can't compare to those in the US and other places where their upload bandwidth is higher. And not to mention those which seed using dedicated servers (seed boxes) which have ludicrous amounts of upload bandwidth. The end result is people on standard home broadband don't get a look in.

Also, download a file from somewhere else (which is already on TheBox, and is the EXACT same file). Download the .torrent file from theBox, point it to the pre-downloaded file and seed away. You'll be seeding but won't have lost any download allowance. Just make sure it's the exact same file.

Just find the most popular weekly thing on there, download it (even if its pap) and leave it. Do this for a few weeks and you should have a reasonable buffer.

Presume you have utorrent set up properly ?

Is that the one for tv programmes, like coach trip etc? Yeah i used to have the same problem with ratio years ago. I used to download the free popular torrents and re seed to get ratio back. Once i finished downloading coach trip (which i couldnt find anywhere else to download), i didnt bother with that site again.

Download the free torrents and seed them back and your ratio will soon rise.

Also download the weekly free ones for a good hit, this week its: The Two Ronnies Series 1 (1971)

THIS

Load up the free torrents as soon as they appear (early in the morning is best).

easy to get in credit then.

But it gets annoying that u cant download whatever u want, without ratio problems. I have no issue sharing, but i found that it was a very slow process, i was leaving my computer on for days and still not many people were downloading from me......to a point where i thought the electricity was costing me more then the dvd would have to purchase from the bbc shop.

Then id download a another few episodes and the ratio would get too low again. Good if you run a 24/7 server i guess.

I find it easy to keep a good ratio on there but I do leave my computer on 24/7.

I'd give up on thebox.bz if I were you. Google a bit on the subject and you will find that the moderators/owners have serious attitude problems. Find another site to support - there are plenty that are more worthwhile.

lol

Probably; he bumped an old thread to say that. I've done the same, but I've decided I'm allowed.

I know this thread is a bit old but if you are still having problems, watch what version of torrent client you are using, I use uTorrent and was using a newer version, and I couldn't seed for toffee, so I downgraded to 1.8.2, and I have manged to get from -70+ gig, to 5+ gig in credit in about 3 weeks. They are very sniffy about which version and what torrent client you can use, so have a wee read of their rules, this in conjunction with the other advice given here, like get in early with the free torrents should help.
