    • download subtitles when they are avalaible

      They are many RSS subtitles' feeds, would it be possible to make TED download them when they are avalaible ? I think they do have the same name format that the shows, so maybe it wouldn't be too hard to do ?

      • Make a web interface

        I know that many people like my self have DVRs or servers at home that have no monitor for an interface. This would be a great way for these people to use TED. I know this would take a lot of work, but I think a lot of people could use it.

        • Add support for private trackers

          Websites like Demonoid.com, Torrentbits.ro, etc... require a username and password.

          It would be really helpful if TED supported these sites as the number of people using these sites is rapidly growing.

            If you have sites that are not supported by ted, please contact us (support@ted.nu) so we can add support for the torrent site.
            Please include some details like the RSS feed contents, any passkeys required and if you can, provide us with an invite so we can test the support ourselves.

          • Have a central, configurable list of RSS feeds to use

            When I'm adding a bunch of shows, it is annoying to have to go into each one and edit the feed list for each one.

            And if I want to add another site to search from I would have to add it to all my shows individually, which is a huge pain.

            • allow users to delay search until 1 day after show airs

              I have found that the only thing I find when searching on the day a show airs are fakes. I would like to be able to universally configure ted to wait until Tuesday to check Monday shows, so that I can make sure that the fakes have already been weeded out. I know this is possible by going into the individual shows, but I'd rather not lose the automatic scheduler's power.

              I'm faking this right now by setting my time zone to -12 GMT even though I live in -5 GMT.

              • utorrent label

                It would be very good if TED created a label on each .torrent file so uTorrent places each episode of each different series automatically in a different subdirectory per series.

                For example:
                CSI\Season 9\CSI.S09E01.avi
                CSI\Season 9\CSI.S09E02.avi
                Heroes\Season 3\Heroes.S03E01.avi

                etc etc

                Don't know if it's easy to implement, but I guess it's only a line in the .torrent file.

                • Add support for Media Center Vista

                  It would be great if the TED client could be integrated into Media Center Vista (or XP) as a plugin.

                  • option to download SD when HD not available

                    sometimes when requesting HD torrents for a series, an episode might never be available in HD, and later new episodes will be available. In that case, Ted could detect that the new episode in available and offer to download an SD version of the HD-missing episode instead of holding the queue forever for that series.

                    • Hide the dock icon

                      Seeing as ted is one of those apps that run in the background, it would be really nice if I could hide the dock icon. As it stands, I only allow apps that I regularly interact with in my dock. ted is not one of those apps (which is a good thing, as it "just works").

                      I know about the plist.info hack, but then I can't reach ted's settings dialog since the menu bar items disappear and clicking the ted icon does not offer access to the settings.

                          ted 0.95 will have episode airdates built in, used for scheduling your shows.
                          ted 0.97 (0.96 was a maintenance release) will have some sort of nice display of all this schedule information, apart from the episode list ted now already has in the add show / edit show dialogs

                        • Quit after checking shows

                          So that Ted doesn't always sit in memory, please add an option to have it quit after it checks shows. It's easy to automatically launch it using cron (Mac/Linux) or at (Windows).

                            • Download NZB files rather than torrents

                              Use TED to download NZB files based on the same criteria as torrents. So specify which sites to search (free sites such as TVNZB and Newsleecher and also pay sites - would need to store log on details).

                              This utilises all the great functionality in TED and takes it into the Usenet world.

                                It would only apply to your subscribed TV series that are set to "Check" or "Pause" status.

                                • sequential episodes

                                  As of version 0.96 you can select either "daily show" or "season/episode show".
                                  I'm not familiar with java but would it be hard to add a "sequential show" mode?
                                  That is, for anime shows and such which is announced by a sequential number instead of sXXeYY.
                                  Now that Naruto, Bleach, One Piece and other animes is starting to become quite big I think it would be a nice thing to implement.

                                  • Ability to select container (avi, mkv etc)

                                    Is it possible to add checkboxes to select what kind of containers you're looking for ? I would like something like
                                    * Any
                                    * Mkv
                                    * Avi

                                    • download show torrents to separate folders

                                      Not the same as the previously closed "Download shows to separate folders" idea, this would just put the particular show torrent in a particular folder. It's up to the torrent client to organise the download location.

                                      Transmission has an option to keep the download in the same folder as the torrent, which would actually work really well for download organisation.

                                      • Use magnet links

                                        TPB's tracker never works, cutting off an otherwise good source of torrents. If TED could simply use the magnet-links, rather than the torrent links, in the RSS, the problem would be fixed.

                                        • Restrict TED downloads to specific time of day

                                          It would be great if you could restrict TED to only request downloads start at specific times of the day. This feature would be great for those that only want high bandwidth usage while they are away. This may however be difficult as TED releases control to the client after the DL starts.
