    Anyone having today demonoid problems?
    I cant connect to any of the Demonoid trackers as they always say No Connection Could Be Made Because The Target Machine Actively Refused It.
    Is this an overcrowd problem?
    I was never a register member but i the torrents i found in other sites worked...
    Also i would be happy if you could give me an invitation.
    thanks

    Same here, I've had to grab Heroes & Prison Break from RevTT instead, which is great for stuff as it takes like 10 minutes to download stuff but I prefer to use that for films and games, TV stuff don't seed very well I find.

    Well demonoid is the only one down at the moment. Theres another site thats open, but theres a 5 hour wait for new stuff there as my ration is crap.

    I wont say what its called as its pretty much pointless seeing its private and I have no invites left, plus I think its banned here to give links to illegal download sites.

    Its not down at all, just not open for guests.

    There is a message on isohunt about them not letting people from the US access trackers

    I am sorry if this breaks the rules, but i feel it is relevant to the discussion and remove this post if you feel the need to do so.

    Huh, that'd really suck for both the US users just as well for all the other users. I mean, a lot of content comes from the US users. Disabling access for the US is like eleminating 50% of the seeds and REALLY cutting down on the amount of new torrents.

    anyone know why the heroes files are so big? is it a double episode or just a high quality release?

    that sucks about the disabled access on isohunt for US users. can understand why they'd do this but it feels like they're just letting the MPAA win.

    Nope its 40 odd minutes like they usually are. The bigger files are HD ones.

    Heroes S02E01 HDTV XviD-XOR. 699mb. Nuked as it has 12 secs of adverts.
    Heroes S02E01 720p HDTV x264-CTU. 1.09 GB
    Heroes S02E01 Four Months Later PROPER HDTV XviD-FQM. 354mb, Not HD, I grabbed this one very good quality.

    Demonoid was up last night. It seemed to go down early this morning. The trackers seems to be working for me, but the website is down. I had no problems getting prison break and heroes from usenet [​IMG]

    "Demonoid Shut Down by the CRIA
    Written by Ernesto on September 25, 2007

    Demonoid.com, one of the most popular BitTorrent trackers has allegedly been taken offline by the Canadian Recording Industry Association (CRIA). Both the tracker and the website have been unresponsive for nearly 24 hours now."

    they'll probably move to a new server like before. Really I hope they do, I thought I was IP banned from there and I was going crazy [​IMG]
