Who here uses tennistorrents.com?
where do you get a invite?
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.
You can also immediately register at t3nnis.tv before they start the invite system. they have torrents too.
all right my email thing is on thanks for the invite do they have good quality videos on there?
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.
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.
I'd love an invite. I'm a veteran torrenter.
why do they have the invite? why cant people just join?
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.
^^^That makes sense, thanks
Storm, if you can enable email, i'll shoot you an invite pronto.
Sentinel, do we get more invites after we use the initial ones, this is the first time i've ever invited someone
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.
The e-mail address email@example.com is already in use.
That's what it just told me. Turns out I already have membership there... great.
Storm, pls remove your email from these 2 posts immediately. You'll be on the spam lists in NO TIME at all.
Great. I'll look out for you there!
yo what about me i havent got a invite
Sent you one. Check mail.
can you send me an invite please??? i want to download the federer vs tipsarevic match from aus open this year
thanks in advance!
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.
Hi Sentinel! Can I can please get an invite as well?? firstname.lastname@example.org
would also like an invite
asherif844 at yahoo dot com
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?
Sentinel , could you please invite me also ? Thanks in advance
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.
Any hd material there yet?
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.
I want an invite too ... Please.
an invite would be much appreciated here as well, email is enabled. I promise to seed!
can i get an invite? please
is it possible to get an invite as well? I will host as much as possible to...
email@example.com it be great if any1 could invite me. wont abuse the system, im pretty trustworthy
I've got content that I can share w/ the community, and I'm well-versed in torrent etiquette; an invite would be appreciated. I can be reached at yahoo via my e2thec account.
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.
May I have one too?
haha nahh im gonna download more than that. the most important one to me though is the federer-tipsarevic match. theres heaps more i wanna download. federer-safin aus open 05 for example, and agassi-federer us open final 05, agassi-baghdatis aus open 06. theres a lot of matches i want to download. im not gonna be just a hit and run
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?
who have you attempted to contact at TT?
chiapants, jamauss - hold your horses/breath. Shooting you my last 2 precious invites.
Jamauss, i recall you from the stage6 final days :-( I remember reading you had done a marathon download !
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.
I dont understand why you have to be invited...I torrent all the time and this is the first time i actually have to be invited...
Answer is given earlier in post titled "Hit and Run". Thanks.
I would love to fill my new 500GB WD external and 15MB/sec bandwidth with some great matches.
Thanks again for the invite mate. So where do I go to see and manage my own invites so that I can hand some out??
please invite me my email is Trev343@gmail.com I will seed I dont block any of my files.
Okay point out where do I read the rules and send invite to me. I will behave, promisse.
To be honest , I cannot remember
I do know remember asking this question on another forum
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?
Anyone there to send me invite > I post my email 2 posts above???
