Description

TV is a 0-Day tracker. It appears to have started a bit less than two years ago, but it wasn't until this year that they began to be talked about, thanks to some "promotion" open signups (including opening the doors for ex-ScTers) featured on FILEnetworks and FSF. Until one month ago, they were using a modified TBdev frontend, but later switched to Gazelle.

Content is pretty much the same as on every other mainstream site (although they have some packs) - but if you look at their pretimes, you'll notice they're very good and sometimes even beat the bigger sites such as SCC.

Cheating there is very easy. You can use the Waffles method (I did around 40GB with it), or "normal" faking using the Extreme Mod or RM/mR. The PMR is also supposed to work, but I'd advice you seed a lot after using it, or else your permanent snatchlist (Profile -> View Transfer History) won't look nice.

If you have more information, feel free to post it.

LOL its seems real like those Insane uploaded and downloaded amounts in Alpacino's goem review.

TV is no doubt a very decent 0day tracker , with lots of leech activity enough to give you cover while cheating, I have mostly seen more then 6 seeds /torrent.

site stats are also impresive

Very nice review. I probably will pass on this though, I already have so many trackers... I'm finding it hard to balance them all on emails and such :S

Happens to everyone. You should only keep the ones you use. I gave the others away or let them die of inactivity. The e-mail problem was solved thanks to Trash-Mail :biggrin:

21.12.09, 22:42
If they die of inactivity, does it ever get totally deleted? I'm mostly worried about the email.

Never again, will I use gmail when they accept Guerillamail xD

anon

Most TBdev sites delete inactive accounts. Gazelle ones disable them, so you can get the account back if you ask (and depending on the tracker, have a good excuse).

I think this is really a decent tracker,maybe under-rated ,no one is asking for a TV invite I think!

By the way ,is a nice tracker with a big potential!, they have an auto uploader thats why they have a lot o torrents :top:

I must say after their transformation to gazelle, ratiomaster+memory reader gives "file not registered on tracker" error. Might be fault from the site, will report back if there is any improvement.

Just had a chuckle. Your review pic of the marketplace found its way onto the TV forums, with the nice "SB-I Mod :D" custom title typed in. lol. The thread is titled "Market Release?" under the "Chat Section" in the Forums. Let's see how long the poster keeps his TV account. Out of courtesy for the user, I will not post the user name or a url to the post. But it is quite funny!

I'll try the RM there today. Does using your real client work?

Yep, using real client works on some recent torrents, while others got error "torrent not registered" but I've found the explanation in the forum for this error. Its pretty obvious since they lost data. For those torrents which works on my real client, these same torrents trigger the "cannot decode" error on RM. The problem has been so persistent on TL and TV now. But RM works perfect for me at my other 6 usual trackers. Looks like I gotta start learning Vuze...

anon
05.05.10, 22:30
OK, I just tried the RM on a few TV torrents, and it worked just fine. Same with TL (checked just in case), so it has to be a problem on your side.

Regarding learning Vuze, here's the tutorial :biggrin:

After months of waiting, the marketplace is up... at least the old one is. Official site news:

Hey everyone. While we are still working tirelessly on the New Market, we decided to bring back the Classic Marketplace in the mean time. Eventually the Classic Market will be a part of the New Market. But for now it's all tested and working. There's even a new feature that lets you pay some of your Gold into a Pot to unlock Free Leech for a day.

Hi Anon, is there any particular reason why Vuze 4.4.0.1_B06_DDJ Beta is not open for download to non-member while 4.3.0.5_B01 Beta is? I mean in terms of new features does it has something which cannot be shared?.... Thanks.

It doesn't have any special new uber secret feature, its just the way it is. Latest vuze versions are available for testing to members only. Check thread about obtaining member title if you are interested and didn't saw it yet.

It's the same thing, just based on a newer core, and we'd rather make it available to Members only, that's all.

Some tips on how to get invited to this tracker? For instance, tracker forums that offers invites and so on.

Resurrection
03.08.10, 17:58
Yep tons of torrent invite sites that give away invite to enter this tracker...

Check this thread to take your pick http://www.sb-innovation.de/f56/best-tracker-invite-forums-2343/

Quickly spam your way to 20 posts (without being too obvious) and patiently wait for someone to offer TV invite....

Post all your screenshots and boom you are done...

anon
03.08.10, 18:44
That's true for so many trackers :) It's nice to see how most invite forums are against trading, yet divide giveaways in "low-level" and "high-level" ones.

I dropped my TV account a long time ago since I had little use for it, otherwise I'd have probably invited you.

Torrentvault shut down


Dear users of TV
It's with great sadness that we have to announce that TV is officially dead after a providing our users with releases for a decade.
This is due to a few reasons..

1) TV had only ONE sysop. This meant that noone except him could handle donations or site related things. We asked him for months to promote another sysop, and even having a 2nd developer (which we already found), but he never did. The reason is is unknown to the rest of staff.

2) Only ONE person had access to site donations. The sysop. The rest of staff didn't have any way to handle donations and give out what users donated for. Donors never got promoted and users who donated for GB, never got the paid benefits. When users messaged staff, we gave them what they paid for, BUT without access to PayPal, we could only do so much.

3) It looks like site-related services like servers never got paid, which means the website has been offline for a few days. This without other staff's knowledge. We are just waiting for the iRC server to go offline aswell, but we don't know when that will happen-

The sysop (site owner) came online for a couple of days, but left again. Before that he had been gone for 2-3 weeks without notifying staff. When he came back, he told us that he had been arrested and had spent the time in jail due to personal reasons.

About a week or two ago, staff sent out a site-wide notice telling people to contact PayPal to get their donations cancelled. We know that a couple of users did so, which meant the PayPal account got frozen. But honestly, that's not ours or the users problem. The sysop found out who one of the person was, and sent him a message telling him that he would get banned from site if he didn't take back his claim.

The user apparently never got back to sysop, so his account got banned. That's an absolute unacceptable behavior.

We are very sorry about how this whole mess evolved, but we, staff, had absolutely no way to know what was about to happen. Siteop gave no warning whatsoever.

All we can do is thank all the users for supporting us through good and bad times, and apologize for this shit. We again urge people to contact PayPal to get donations cancelled if possible.

With great sadness we say goodbye and wish you all luck where you will find your new home.

This is unfortunate, especially because it seems it could have been prevented by simply appointing another sysop (although we only know one side of the story).

This tracker was really underrated, they managed to have something good with rather little publicity. I don't recall them being involved in any BT dramas either.
