{{Archive|1=Not packaged for Arch, last release 2007.[https://sourceforge.net/projects/pytvshows/files/?source=navbar]}}
[https://sourceforge.net/projects/pytvshows/ PyTVShows] is a Python script for downloading .torrent files from trvrss.net or eztv.it. The configuration is very easy and PyTVShows remembers the series you already watched.
== Installation ==
#redirect [[ArchWiki:Archive]]
[[Install]] {{AUR|pytvshows}}{{Broken package link|{{aur-mirror|pytvshows}}}} from the [[AUR]].
== Configuration ==
Create a file named {{ic|.pytvshows.cfg}} in your home directory.
In this file you are going to fill in your series in this syntax for example south park:
  episode = x
  season = y
  episode = 5
  season = 5
note that x and y are variables, you can fill in the season and episode number you already have watched like x = 14 & y = 12
also note that + means a whitespace, you must always add this symbol for a whitespace if you do not do that the script will not work.
== Running pytvshows ==
Now you can start running pytvshows by default the output directory is your ~/  you can change that:
# pytvshows --output_dir=/home/<user>/torrents/
For more options run:
# pytvshows --help
Let your bittorent client watch the directory where you download your torrents so they are automatically  added.
If you want to run pytvshows in the background, first make a bash script:
echo -n “tvshows.sh - “; date # log current date & time
pytvshows  --output_dir=/home/<user>/torrents/ --verbose >> ~/scripts/pytvshows.log
As you can see, log the output of pytvshows.
Then add this script to cron:
#crontab -e (as normal user, using pytvshows as root is not recommended)
#30 * * * * /home/<user>/scripts/tvshows.sh
Please use a other time otherwise it will get to many hits at the same time.
