Badsecurityforum Posted January 20, 2009 Report Share Posted January 20, 2009 I missed several episodes of a tv show because of the RSS downloader.For example, i have "Scrubs" as a favorite. And today i checked the feeds for something different and there where 3 torrents for Scrubs in plain sight and the RSS downloader is doing nothing.My filter settings are not very complicated:Filter: ScrubsFeeds: allQuality: allnothing else.Why doesn't it recognize the torrents like "Scrubs.8x03.(HDTV-NoTV)[VTV]"?I added this torrent as a favorite and utorrent set the filter to "Scrubs VTV" and began downloading? Where is the big difference? It should work also without the additional keyword for the release group. Another example: There is a show with torrents like "Being.Erica.....". I tried to manually add a filter with filter set to "Erica". No matches. It has to be added with the filter set to "Being Erica" otherwise it won't match. This makes no sense.Another example. RSS entry "Private.Practice. ... .[VTV]". After some testing i found out, that the filter has to be exactly set to "Private Practice VTV" like utorrent enters it automatically, otherwise nothing will be downloaded.This has to be one of the worst implementations of a filter method i have encountered.The normal user would expect that the Downloader would catch any RSS feed depending on the filter string. But is nowhere clear, that the full name of the show has to be entered or that even the release group has to mentioned.I call this "broken".
