I need to do some work on my CoachPotato setup. Sickbneard works great but the amount of gooseberry fool and german stuff I get from Couch is ridiculous.

I just wish there was an easier way to watch sports without using dodgy Russian sites or watching terrible quality streams.

Man I hope the term 'PUSS' takes off. It worked for LAMP.

Truth be told, I was desperately trying to think of a 'Y' because I am 14 years old. Sterling work Falsey.

I'm the same. I've stopped relying on CouchPotato to watch for future releases as I just ended up with fakes and Cams.

It's fairly useful as a search and snatch tool for releases you know have good versions out there, but even that can be hit and miss.

I just add really specific requirements to my preferred quality which seems to be working so far.

I really need to get around (read, be arsed) to get usenet up and running instead of private torrent trackers.

Purely for non-Sky stuff of course. Because Sky is awesome and you should all subscribe so I can keep getting it free.

I usually choose my HD 720 profile and if that scores no hits, then best.

Their la liga coverage is a joke. Biggest game of the season, we hear the expert opinions of Alex Song and Clichy. :fp:

And Clichy told us about 10 times if we weren't sure that he is a defender. Surely for the biggest game of the season they could have got better guests.

Had a letter from Sky TV today informing me that my monthly charges are to stay the same. My original bundle price went down by £1.00, while my HD package went up by £1.00.

Cool. I'm perfectly happy with Sky TV, anyway, and had no intention of switching, but it's nice to be told - and thanked for staying with Sky. 8-)

Roll on, the next series of Penny Dreadful, Game of Thrones, etc. I'm ready.

That was the gag. Don't know why they bothered sending a letter, it's not like they don't have my e-mail address.

I assume you work for Rupey Boy right? Seems rather silly sending you a letter indeed! In fact I would say needless cost sending the letter - cost savings that can be passed to all of us getting fleeced!!!!

FTFY.

Nice try. This is the company that bought us the remake of Gladiators. You can't go making ridiculous statements like that knowing that Rupes has funded the wrecking of a childhood favourite.

Oh and the price paid for the footy was a joke :shock:

And I fell asleep during the Fortitude thing.

I do like those Richard E Grant Hotel docs though. I'll give the phone hacking old crook that.

Well I got a letter saying that my monthly costs would be increasing by £4.50 per month.

Time to threaten cancelling and see what they do.
