    I'm currently new to this and downloading this from alt.bineries.hdtv through Pipex news servers using Xnews.

    The first files (part 1 to 5 rar files) are not full (70/70).

    Is this okay or will i have to redownload them?
    Is there a better place to download these and other files from?
    Its currently showing 23 rar's in total and Xnews or pipex servers are showing the past 4 days worth of stuff, is this the same everywhere?

    Thanks,

    Steve.

    If the rars are incomplete, you have to hope the poster has also posted either PARs or PAR2 files - these, along with smartpar or other tools, will let you rebuild incomplete rar files.

    But .... it doesn't sound like all the rars are there. There were a hell of a lot more than 23 rars when I downloaded it (it was into the hundreds .. it is a 14Gb download, after all !).

    You may get better luck on a paid-for newservice (giganews, supernews etc), but unless thoses files have been reposted recently, they probably wont have them either.

    Just looked, 363 files including par2s. The retention is poor on pipexnews. Giganews has good retention ( although some news grabbers struggle to do a full update because of this ).TTT is in the process of being reposted.

    Guys,

    This is the WMV version and not the .TS files, i think this is 5.4GB in total and not 14GB for the .TS version.

    Meva,

    I think i'm in the middle of downloading the reposted version.

    Do you think i need a better news reader (currently using XNews)?

    Is Alt.bineries.hdtv the only group for this stuff?

    Thanks for the replys,

    Steve.

    The .nfo file for the post says it's 118 rars, posted over the next few days.

    Newservice is currently showing 23 rars, with one incomplete.

    This is the second movie, LOTR TTT?
    First batch of 23 rar files is complete using my Xnews client on both Claranews and Giganews. Might download it myself just to have a good look at what MS wants to force onto us if they have their way:)

    from what i gather, you have to find a anonymous/free proxy server somewhere on the net (prob in states?), and then use this as your proxy settings in IE, this then fools the license server into sending you the licence to watch the film.

    Talk of downloading illegally from the internet is not what this forum is for.
