Does anyone know if it's possible to have Boxee begin downloading shows from an RSS feed automagically? I'd like it to work similarly to the iTunes "download the last nn episodes."

As best I can tell, you have to add an RSS feed via the Boxee website and then, from within the Boxee UI, tell it which episodes you want to download.

Am I missing something?

This is a ticket on GetSatisfaction already:

http://getsatisfaction.com/boxee/topics/automatically_download_torrent_rss_feeds

You can bump it or add your own comments there.

I'd never seen this Get Satisfaction site before and I'm buggered if I'm going to register at another site just to vote it up.

Dude i'm just a fellow user, telling you that that's their bug tracking/feature request site. I agree it's stupid to have to create another account and getsatisfaction should probably support some kind of anonymous/non-login way to post stuff.

But the forum moderaters here even redirect people to getsatisfaction for bug reports/feature requests. It's their system:
http://forum.boxee.tv/showthread.php?t=5055

Beyond that I'm sure they still do read these forums, so bumping the forum post is probably as effective anyway.

How to Rss feed without the Twaddle of a third party:~

Goto your favourite Torrent site,
Type in your the programme you wish to Rss feed,

Lets say 'True Blood' click enter

Now look for a 'search thread' you should find (EZTV).

Now type in True Blood (EZTV)
you should now have the 'thread' for True Blood (EZTV) and all the programs associated with that.

Click on RSS

In the web address bar above is the feed required to make your programs auto download to you torrent client.

Remember when searching for another feed (EZTV) may not be the feed client you want. ( It may be SYS or OTV or VTV etc.)


All tried & tested :eek:
