    Just out of interest OP what is the advantage of using demonoid. Is it not just the same as torrents or are they private(?) torrents?

    Its a private torrent site, all new torrents are open to the public, but over a certain age they become private members only.

    There are many private torrent sites, some better than others.

    Is this so that it is harder for ISPs to know that you are downloading torrents? ie you could just be using iplayer a lot. Also do they just download using the same programs - utorrent, bitlord....

    Thanks.

    Many private sites have a list of banned clients which are usually the outdated ones. Thinks like the newest uTorrent and kTorrent etc are allowed.

    Advantages of a private torrent site are the presence of seedboxes (look in wikipedia ) which will allow you to pretty much max out your connection 24/7.

    Yes it is safer than a public torrent, although obviously the RIAA etc are going to want to infiltrate these groups as they are the 'big guns'. That said, i wouldn't worry

    Its easy for an ISP to know whether you are using torrents or iplayer, the type of traffic is very different for one thing, however its not the ISP that has the problem, its normally an authority who contacts your isp then your isp passes on the message.

    One 'disadvantage' of a private site is the requirement to seed. You should always seed a torrent to 1:1 however, from a public its unlikely many people do. With a private site you will or you will get banned.

    Hope this answers your questions
