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.
Create a file named
.pytvshows.cfg in your home directory.
In this file you are going to fill in your series in this syntax for example south park:
#[South+Park] episode = x season = y [Dirty+Jobs] 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.
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:
#!/bin/bash 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.
