TorrentVault (TV) has been mentioned on this blog quite a few times. That’s because it’s a great private tracker for general p2p/scene releases, especially TV and music torrents. The site has excellent pre times, good download speeds and a decent amount of activity on most indexed torrents. TorrentVault recently underwent a massive change – they have upgraded to the Gazelle codebase and are now looking better than ever. In addition, their autouploader bots seem to be on steroids – they are now spewing hundreds of scene releases to the tracker daily (including Multilanguage releases). TorrentVault has never opened signups since they moved to Gazelle. However, FILEnetworks readers will now be able to register new accounts on TV through the special signup link mentioned at the end of this post.

TorrentVault

TorrentVault is by no means a new private tracker. The older, TBDEV powered version of the site had been around for years. By now it’s a well established site with over 6000 active members and close to 10000 torrents. Many are unaware of it but TV actually has better pre times than other larger, better known torrent sites – for example, it’s television torrent upload times are on par with (and sometimes beat) trackers such as SCC, ScT and TL. Most of the good pre times are thanks to scripts that automatically upload releases to the tracker (aka autouploaders). TorrentVault’s autouploader bots upload more than 100 torrents to the tracker every day. During yesterday alone there’s been ~125 scene releases uploaded to the tracker (this includes muti-language releases).

TorrentVault does index a lot of TV releases – if you are focused on downloading single episode torrents and not many full season packs, you wouldn’t need a specialized TV tracker to get them if you have an account on this site. But make no mistake – it doesn’t only have TV torrents. Music, games, movies and other general stuff is readily available too. Below is a screen of TV running on its brand new Gazelle implementation:

Speaking of Gazelle, they’ve just upgraded and some features of the site are still being worked on (that’s what the current logo is all about). There’s been a lot of recent changes along with Gazelle migration and tons of new features are in the works as well. A summary of changes and upcoming features are given below (quoted from a new post on TV)

Changes

Site is now viewable in up to 256bit SSL encryption, simply visit https instead of http
Our IRC New Torrent Announcement has been cosmetically updated and due to this.. TV AutoDownloader v2.2.9 has been Updated by Ze0de.
NEW tagging system. Usually hundreds of torrents are Uploaded daily so its nice to be able to control which are torrents you haven't looked at.

    I spoke to an admin from TV yesterday and he confirmed that the site will be back up very soon, hopefully a couple days max.

    The general convo was that they had to move to a more reliable host and the decision was made quickly.

    All users accounts are safe and you can still connect to their IRC using the info he gave me:

    Non SSL: /server 85.17.183.201 9011
    SSL: /server 85.17.183.201 +9022

    Use /join #tv for main channel and /join #tv-help for help channel.

    Hope this helps everyone. :)

    Thanks, Blah!

  24. Ankur // 11/26/2009 07:53:00 AM  

    Site came back online today..
    I LOST MY ACCOUNT!!!
    I logged in and it says invalid username or password..
    I tried Lost Password..it says invalid Email ID
    I tried the signup link above again.. Its says capcha code incorrect (eventhough its correct)

    Anyone having this problem?
    I do i contact TV and get my account back????

  25. Blah // 11/26/2009 08:56:00 AM  

    Ankur, you should really check out their IRC before posting. That is where they are keeping everyone posted on news.

    I have been idling in there for updates. I suggest you check it out also on the details above. Your account is not lost, nor should you be signing up for a new one.

    Check their IRC people! :|

    p.s. The site is back online now, but it is not fully functional yet, I can not log in yet, but I have been assured this is tempoary while they set up the new server. Can't wait for TV to be back online fully. :)

  26. paul // 11/26/2009 06:13:00 PM  

    Thanks for the info Blah, unfortunately some of us dont get chance to use IRC - i for one find it all too confusing!

  27. jesse // 11/26/2009 10:23:00 PM
