We have a plethora of Media Players (now almost pointless as new TVs are shipping with web browsing and media playing capabilities built-in) arrayed with our home televisions. The players are fed (either through SMB shares or a DLNA server).
Keeping the content current on the media server, however, has always been a bit of a laborious (internet wise anyway) process (keeping track of others shows) and moving the files around. I’m not a big fan of the administrivia involved in home network maintenance.
Thankfully the internet comes to the rescue, ShowRSS allows you (with the use of an appropriate torrent client) to “subscribe” to your favorite shows, and to automate the process of downloading the newest episodes.
I’m a big fan already.
