ong time readers of this blog should be no strangers to specialized TV torrent trackers such as BTN, BitmeTV, TVTorrents.Com and Tv.Torrents.Ro. But have you heard about torrentRmine (TRM)? While most TV trackers focus on popular drama, comedy, sitcoms, etc aired on US and Canadian television, TRM focuses more on specialized content such as TV talk shows, documentaries, reality TV and similar series. With their own ‘cappers’ who rip television shows from digital satellite TV (DSTV) and high definition TV (HDTV) broadcasts, TRM really has some unique content. Over the years, torrentsRmine has mostly been an invite only tracker – good news is that signups have been opened for a limited time and doors are now open to all.
When compared to leading TV trackers, TRM is a small community. As of 21/9/2011, it had around 600 registered members and ~2250 active torrents. The low member count is probably due to TRM being an invite only community and the fact that it frequently disables inactive members. As for the torrents, this tracker 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. 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:
As mentioned earlier signups for TRM are currently open. 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 2 weeks). 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 – check out the gold and silver torrents which have 100% and 50% free leech respectively).
