Groups

    Anybody use Newsgroups

    Anybody know of a Newsgroup index that lists TV Shows by show name? Rather than searching for each one?

    Bit like EZTV does for torrents

    I use nzbmatrix atm but i can only see how to sort by TV which lists everything rather than by particular show, unless i'm missing something

    Search by category of TV show then sort by age, you normally get the list of the show you want in order of date aired.

    I use both, but on nzbsrus for example, you type in "Lost" Lost episodes come up. You type in "The Bill" episodes of the Bill will come up. Is that what you mean?

    Newzbin - They are all pretty much the same. I flick between them all most days

    I meant more like a great big, alphabetical, list of current TV Shows as links, then i can go along and open each of the shows i want in new tabs, which will list them all in order of date aired.

    Unless anyonde uses RSS feeds, that would be even simpler!

    I finally got an invite to Newzbin recently and I must say I'm disappointed, compared to NZBmatrix it is so cluttered and hard to browse for things. I also resent paying continuously for something that nzbmatrix gives you for a one off low payment.

    I mainly use Merlins Portal, which is good, but i would have to search for each one manually, i'm far too lazy for that!!

    As I mentioned above, if you use a site like nzbmatrix you can search for a particular show like Fringe for example in either TV shows or HD TV shows, if you filter by age then you usually get them in order of air date. It takes seconds to do this and is probably the closest you're going to come to what you're after.

    Try ]astraweb, you can buy 25gigs worth of downloads for $10 rather than pay monthly. You see if its for you before commiting

    I use altbinz and get 800KB/s max on which ever machine I use it on though all the machines are connect by cable to the router, are you sure the desktop altbinz is set to the same settings as the laptop?

    Just had a look and my Max download is 55Kb/s on my laptop and 1100kb/s on the desktop, changed it and it's much better now.

    Do you use RSS feeds with it?
