Do you have your PCH mounted on a server? You can browse to the PCH's hard drive and unrar like you would any other file on your server.

Not fr transmission though. I'll be adding that after transmission 1.60 is released.

RE: still cant work out how to unrar torrents
ok, a real n00b question here...: the standard torrent download software installed with the NMT software is called Transmission right? Smile

I am also interested in auto unrar after a torrent download is completed.
now when a torrent is done there apears a nfo.log file in the folder (with the same name as the .nfo file) with a text like this:
UNRAR 3.71 beta 1 freeware Copyright © 1993-2007 Alexander Roshal

folder_name/file_name.nfo is not RAR archive
No files to extract


So it seems that it tries to unrar, but it sees a nfo file and stops since it can not unrar a nfo. But the r00 files start right under there (since the 'n' comes before the 'r' in the alphabet)...

How can this be solved?

I don't know if what I'm going to suggest is stupid or not, however here it is:
Ilink Can play straight from rar files: no more need to unrar your media. (Comes with special unrar-3.7.8-seek.)
Install Ilink via the CSI, it's already included in the install package
Hope that helps

I'm also using Llink and it works great. You don't have to unrar anything, just open it and than play it...

My girlfriend uses it all the time as well.

RE: still cant work out how to unrar torrents
Here's a way to Unrar the files using telnetd:

1) Install telnetd on your NMT, using community software installer. Works great and very useful.

2) Open command prompt in Windows or terminal in OSX/Linux.

3) Type in without qoutes "telnet ip", where ip is you nmt ip address, and press enter. For example "telnet 192.168.1.4".

4) You should see your current location in your nmt directory tree. Something like "/opt/sybhttpd/localhost.drives/HARD_DISK #".

5) To list all files/directories in current directory type "ls". To change directory type "cd directory_name".

6) Your new files are most likely in your Download folder. So change your current directory to Download. "cd Download".

7) List files/folders in Download with "ls" and cd to the directory you need.

8) To unrar a file enter "/mnt/syb8634/bin/unrar e your_archive.rar". If the archive is split into several volumes use the first one. I.e. the file that ends with ".rar", not ".001", and the rest of the volumes will be processed automatically.

9) You will see real-time progress report. You may now close the terminal, and the process will finish by itself. It takes about 40 to 60 minutes to unrar a 4.5GB file.

The whole thing may seem complicated, but you get used to it quickly. I strongly suggest to learn those basic linux commands and look further into telnet usage, as it is extremely helpful with nmt units.

Forget telnet, use this:
http://www.networkedmediatank.com/showth...?tid=17409

It has a GUI like windows explorer and supports unrar (use Internet Explorer to connect, It doesn't work OK with Firefox).

Llink for me worked only for divx, not 720p and 1080p (these stuttered after a while)...

It works!

nzgbet is the program that downloads the torrents? and what is oversight? and it automatically unrars when the download is finished?
Like I posted before: my HDX tries to unrar since there is a log file with each finished download that says that there are no files to unrar...

ok, I managed to get this working! great for movies, where you only need to extract to 1 file Smile
but when you have downloaded a complete season of a serie, it is too much work to do it like this... Sad
there has to be another way right??
