You’ve all heard about popular TV trackers such as TVTorrents.Com, BitMeTV and Freshon.tv. Apart from differences in community, download speeds, etc, all of these trackers have more or less the same content. How about a TV tracker that offers something different? TorrentsRMine (TRM) is one such private tracker that specializes in TV talk shows, documentaries and other TV series that are not readily available on other similar sites. Although it’s been open for signup before, public registrations for TRM are currently closed. However if you are interested in becoming a member, invites are available on their IRC channel.
When compared to leading TV trackers, TRM is a small community. However it indexes and tracks some of the rarest TV torrents around. How does TRM get hold of such content? They have their own ‘cappers’ – folks who capture television shows from sources HDTV, DSTV, etc (best examples are releases by NewWorld and bjdw). At the time this post is being written, TorrentsRmine tracks over 1250 active torrents, some of them being full TV season packs. Additionally, TRM has an excellent requests section with a high request fulfillment ratio. Check out the screenshot below which displays part of this tracker’s torrent index (more info on indexed shows can also be found in our old article located here):
Note that new members do not have access to all content on the tracker immediately after signup. To download some exclusive releases and season packs you need to be Power User rank or higher (getting promoted shouldn’t be too hard – minimum upload is 10GB and you only need to be a member for at least 1 day). And it’s worth mentioning that this is not an easy tracker to seed – since TRM requires you to maintain a minimum ratio, be very careful about what you download, especially at first (there are freeleech torrents of course) .
As mentioned earlier TRM is closed for signup and users can only get in via an invite. You can ask for invites on TRM’s IRC channel – you will however need to show ratio proofs from other private torrent trackers you are a member of. And when/if you do get invited, make sure you read the FAQ and Rules in full – TRM is not likely to give you a second chance if you screw up.
