    Please enable your email so i can mail you an invite.

    But first of all, I hope you are familiar with the torrents system and what your obligations are.

    Once you have downloaded a torrent, you will need to keep your comp on for a few days so others can share from your comp.

    You must upload (roughly) as much as you have downloaded.

    Thanks.

    You can also immediately register at t3nnis.tv before they start the invite system. they have torrents too.

    Are there a lot of seeds? What kind of download speeds do you usually get?

    Usually, ATP matches are posted within a day, so if you missed a match you can download and view it within a few hours (provided it was shown on TV. So first rounds etc of Miami and IW are not likely to be there.)

    Older matches are also present - Agassi, Sampras etc. Some past grand slams.

    SPEED:
    This depends on how many are seeding. If you see 5-10 seeds, then the speed is good. My bandwidth is 64 KBps and i often get that much. So if you have faster bandwidth than I do, you'll get better speeds.

    If you download a torrent with only 1-2 seeds (like older, less popular matches) the speed can be v slow -- you can wait several days for a match to download !

    QUALITY: good, can see ball clearly, TV quality. Can fullscreen and watch.
    The commentary is often Russian or German, but I don't see why that's an issue. Usually the file name specifies language.

    SIZE: Usually 1.5 to 2 GB. So you need disk space so you can continue to seed a match after downloading. It is best to seed matches as long as you can.

    hth. if the above is okay, let me know if I should send you both an invite.

    I think you can also try t3nnis.tv. They have not yet implemented invite, but will very soon.

    Hit and Run

    Earlier it was open. But there were many hit and runs which means people who downloaded a few torrents but never uploaded anything. This is a loss to the torrenting community since this P2P (peer to peer) sharing.

    So now it's mandatory to have a ratio like 1.0 (or atleast 0.4 or 0.5).

    That's why they implemented invites. We are supposed to ensure we invite someone whom we can trust.

    I really don't know. I sent various people invites, but the system was faulty so they could not register.

    I think you will get more invites, if the people you invite upload as much as they download (maintain a healthy share ratio).

    If you invite hit-and-runs, then most likely you won't. I am only a member, so I am guessing.

    chiapants, I don't mean to sound rude, but do you want the invite to download just one match ? That could put me in a tight spot -- see post below on "hit and run". My apologies if I sound presumptious - I need to make sure.

    Sentinel, I'm a member on t3nnis.tv and have downloaded a couple matches. However, I'm not sure if I've been a seeder or not. How would I know if I'm seeding the torrent or not? Do I just leave the computer on and Azureus (my client) will do all the work?

    Two ways,
    One, did you delete the torrent file shown on Azureus after downloading. If you did then you would not have been seeding it. You have to let it be on, and of course not delete the actual movie file.

    Two, log into t3nnis.tv. on the very top you can see your ratio, and "Up" and "Down". Up means how much you have uploaded. Ratio should be 1.0 at least.
    Now, click on your username next to "Welcome back". It will open a page for you.
    If you click on Current Seeds + Show Hide, it will show you how many you are seeding at present.
    Completed Torrents shows you all you have downloaded. Some can move up to Current Seeds if someone starts "leeching".

    Basically, When you download a file, don't delete anything until the ratio shows at least 1.0. It is best of course not to remove it as long as possible.
    I have now even invested in an extra USB drive so i can keep seeding and not worry about disk space.

    It's a GREAT way of giving back to the tennis community. The more people seeding the better for all.

    I'd love an invite. I too am a seasoned bit torrent user. I also have a WMC (the only way to watch t.v. IMO) machine so I can record any match on TV and post.

    I have tons of HD space and don't mind seeding 24/7.

    Just sent you one.

    edit: I guess some of us will have to wait a bit, till others who have just got invites register and are given their 5 invites.

    I have about 13gb of hi-def tennis clips (stuff I took down from Stage6 before it went down) that I could seed if someone can get me an invite.

    Just curious, did tennistorrents, prune active users? I had a account there under the same nick as here, and I am pretty sure my ratio was well above 1.0, I have had no luck receiving a reply from the administrator of the site, has anyone had the same experience? Would that mean I would have to re-register?

    chiapants, jamauss: invites sent. All my invites OVER.

    Anyone I have sent invites to and did NOT use, pls let me know so i can delete the invite and reuse it. I will need to know the invite code too. Thanks.

    To be honest , I cannot remember :(
    I do know remember asking this question on another forum
    link:
    http://www.**********.com/forum/index.php?topic=9091.msg182656#msg182656

    I think someone PM'ed me a email and asked me to contact this person, but I forgot who and deleted the PM :-/

    Its no real big deal re-registering again, but I'd really hate to start from scratch on a pathetic 384k connection. Any advice?
