    Thanks donny,
    As I am very new to this sort of scene, I thought private news groups are much better as you dont get any porn based material and also virus are a lot harder to come by, Any thoughts on this?

    Invite sent :thumbsup:

    Makes no difference.

    There are no private news groups, The all just access the same thing. Or you can do it the old fashion way and download the spools, Which in some ways i wish it was still like that.

    But if you want a invite i will send one over to you email address now.

    Thanks rehydrated..

    Also thank you sven 256, you seem to be a major when it comes to newsgroups then.

    Kind regards all

    [url]www.nzbsrus.com[/url] good one for free. Sign up with different email addys to get more than 5 free d/l's a day :thumbsup:

    Also try

    newzleech.com/


    Type in what you want, get the nzb and away you go.

    There isn't an issue with virus and porn with newsgroups. Doesn't happen

    Again thanks rehydrated.

    Even though its to much overload on the brain trying to work out what i need, where i go and what i do......


    " just had enough off, torrents, P2P, and Kazza based programs. want something that is solid and will reduce risk on infection on comp and mac, and also cure the porn rubbish that is thrown in your face 24/7"

    Donnydude thats the reason im looking into newsgroups, just was not not sure till you just mentioned,that it is safe either way private or public based groups

    I use Astraweb. Can't fault them. Costs me about £7 a month (astraweb+newzbin) and it is the best money I usually spend all month, apart from treating myself to organic eggs.
    I like eggs :-D

    rehydrated does astraweb need a invite?
    so you use astrweb and newzbin, but what host do you use with them. I have also been told of newshosting is really good to use when downloading very fast.

    I had a friend help me out...I will forward you what he sent me. I followed it word for word, and I was up and running in no time. :thumbsup:

    Anyone any thoughts on Newsdemon? newsdemon.com/join/ I'm caught between signing up to these two:

    astraweb $11 unlimited special (currently £8.25 approx)

    Newsdemon 50GB PER MONTH (actually 75GB with 25GB free) EUROPEAN SERVERS package at £8.47 (minus 25% discount with 25ngr25 coupon code) = £6.35

    People here seem happy with astraweb but I've also seen some good reviews for newsdemon. Anyone have any thoughts before I take free trials with both? Thanks

    right just had a quick read on that email you gave me, it seems pretty straight forward and wll defo give it a go. do i have to sign up to astrweb first before i down and use grabit though.

    also my mate said this on a text. "i get my groups from nezbin and download from Newshosting. Whats does this actually mean then ?

    You don't have to sign up with Astraweb, but you will need to sign up with someone. (checked news and they are going up to 270 retention! Basically able to d/l files that are 270 days old, which is gggrrreat! ) I used to use all the usual suspects before, kazza, etc. then on to piratebay and the like, but personally, with astraweb and nzbsrus and newzbin and nzbmatrix, I am more than satisfied :thumbsup:

    Just to clarify

    Services like Astraweb, Newshosting, Giganews etc are a bunch of servers that hold all the files. This is where you will be downloading from.

    Services like newzbin, nzbrus, nzbmatrix etc are websites that index what is available on the above servers and make it easier for you to get what you want.

    So, you download your NZB from Newzbin for example, open it in Grabit, then grabit downloads is from Astraweb or whichever provider you choose.

    mmmmm having just downloaded and installed grabbit, I thought i would use nzbmatrix.com as a tester for my self so went into and created account then launched grabbit. tried to clcik on a NZB file and grabbit then tried to do its thing. Then now i keep getting a error saying, unable to connect to nzbmatrix.com:119 "this is being shown in the bottom right hand corner"

    any thoughts on what i doing wrong ?


    ** just closing down grabit and re-opening it. i am now getting this message

    This application has failed to start because MSVCR71.dll was not found. Re-nstalling the applcaiton may fix the problem

    tried to reinstall and still no joy.

    You should not be connecting via nzbmatrix.com:119

    You have done it wrong

    You need the astraweb address and user name and password in grabit. Nzbmatriz should not even be listed in grabit.

    Hi it is working fine, my only slight problem, is the speed i am getting at the mo.

    max has been about 60kb/s , Is there any way of speeding up or is this due to my ISPbeing only 2mb

    D/L what you want at night, it will be there for you in the morning. If with virgin, call them up see what deals they have and up that speed! :-D

    used NZBmatrix to get muy first download. " which im getting mixed dl speeds between 30kb/s and 90kb/s

    Does this seem correct in the sence of how you are doing things.

    You dont search Astraweb, just forget about that now.

    All your searching will be done on sites like NZB matrix, Newzbin etc

    You should get better speed than that. In grabbit, you will need to up the maximum connections to 10 or above.

    Google it
