TennisTorrents
 
Who here uses tennistorrents.com?

where do you get a invite?

Sentinel 04-13-2008 08:32 PM

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.

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.

^^^That makes sense, thanks

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.

thanks......
