Okay I never bother with utorrent or any bit torrent soft ware. I have used hand brake. So here are a few questions.

lets say I search for a tv show and I find a down load of 30gb for 5 years of shows.

Now I know that would be slow to down load maybe a day At 120kB TO 240kB. l

ets say i fire it up and run it in the background. what are the rules to this. uTorrent seems to download to me and up load to The cloud or what ever. Is it common to do this? Say down load to me at 240 kB and upload to ? at 120kB .

NOT only that that when it is done will hand brake sort it out? say by each show or what?

The iDea behind bittorrent is that you are a part of the tracker/cloud. So if you download, you should also upload.

You can set it's limits to what ever you want. If the tracker is ratio oriented then you will wanna keep the up/down ratio at the minimum specified. Note that most public trackers are not ratio oriented, but pretty much ever private tracker is ratio oriented.

I'm not following you about Handbrake sorting it out. If the shows are already transcoded down to 350M then transcoding them again will result in less than desirable results.

You could just put all the files in a folder and in Handbrake open that folder. You will have to add each episode to the queue manually.

What? The OS injects something into an iso or A/V file? Or does the DVD player app have this thing?

Aside from having a tremendously difficult time following your grammar and punctuation, would you care to point us to a source that verifies this? Also, are you able to clarify what you are saying succinctly?

It's just the information file you delete. If you delete the information file inside the dvd file you will see what i mean when you see it after the ripper rips the movie this is only in lion and only if you are ripping dvd's not downloading them which i still think is wrong you should just buy the movie

I've never had these files in any rips I made with MTR or just ripping with MakeMKV.

Never seen or heard of them either; probably because they don't exist. Lion wouldn't cause these rippers to do any different either. As there is no package contents within the ripped files, not sure what he's talking about. Sounds like he's talking about some sort of root kit.

Unless he can produce a source or clarify, I call this bunk.

Check your download/upload speed at any of the free testing sites online (speedtest, ispgeeks, etc). Set your upload speed to apprx. 80% of upload test. In other words, if your upload speed is 200kb/s, set upload limit in utorrent to 160kb/s. This will maximize your download speed. Setting your upload speed too high or too low has a detrimental effect on your download speed. Here's a few links, familiarize yourself with the settings, can be quite confusing for newbies!

As for handbrake, apples and oranges. Downloaded files will be ready to watch, just place in whatever folder and name according to whatever software you use (plex, atv, etc.).
