What is RSS and how is it useful to me ?
RSS stands for Really Simple Syndication. What it does is create an automated listing of updates from a web site, called a "feed".
Each entry in a feed is a separate individual torrent - the same torrent you'd get by opening the download link manually on a torrent
listing web page.
The feed is written in structured XML which means (without going into too much detail) that the listing is in a format that's very
easy for other applications to understand and act upon without further human intervention. In our case this means we can automate the
downloading of torrents as they become available.
How do I get an RSS feed ?
This varies from website to website, but they come in two basic flavours : `Complete` and `Customised`
Complete is a full listing of every torrent that appears on the site in question.
Customised allows you to narrow down the torrents that appear in the feed according to different criteria.
Each type has benefits and downsides : a feed from a Complete type site tends to offer a much wider range of TV shows, but you have to
put more effort into creating filters in your torrent client to narrow down the listing so that you only end up downloading the shows you want.
A feed from a Customised site tends to have fewer shows, but allows you to personalise your feed content, so that it does the bulk of the
filtering out of unwanted shows/episodes for you automatically.
