If you follow multiple shows per season, keeping an eye on all of them manually can be annoying. But don't fret, with this you will automatically get the new episode downloaded to your HDD ready to be watched without having to lift a finger!
This might seem a little convoluted and too time consuming, but once you have the initial setup done, simply adding new shows is extremely easy and quick.
I'll be using the [HorribleSubs] release for JK Meshi! as an example and qBittorrent as a torrent client. This obviously works with any RSS feed and with any torrent client that supports RSS feeds. Furthermore, I'll also assume that you already have qBittorrent (or some other client) installed.
First it's a good idea to check under what exact name HS releases the show. We go to http://horriblesubs.info/ and check their schedule, manually search or whatever you feel like. In our case, the name they use for the show is „JK Meshi!“.
Now that we got the name, we need the RSS feed, so we head over to http://www.nyaa.se/ .
We enter „[HorribleSubs] JK Meshi!“ into the search and hit enter.
Now, in the top bar, between „IRC“ and „Fap“ there is the „RSS“ button. Press that button. The RSS feed we now get ahs the same results as the webpage we just had after searching the site. Neat isn't it? Copy the url ( http://www.nyaa.se/?page=rss&term=[HorribleSubs]+JK+Meshi !) and take a look at how its constructed.
You can manually change the „[HorribleSubs]+JK+Meshi!“ part to get the RSS feed for any series so you don't have to use nyaa multiple times when adding 10 shows at once, simply change everything after „&term=“ and you get the rss feed for any show you want (just be careful to not make any typos).
Well we got our RSS feed now, time to put that feed into qBittorrent.
First, under „View“ make sure that „RSS Reader“ is set to show up, then change to the RSS Tab. Click „New subscription“ and copy paste the RSS url you got from nyaa previously.
Think we're done? Nope, sorry. We still need to set a rule and a download directory. To do that, click „RSS Downloader“ on the right. Check „Enable Automated RSS Downloader“ and then click the plus to add a new rule. Call it however you like.
For the rules, since The RSS url I use in this example features all 3 qualities HS has to offer. I need to pick one, or else I would get the same episode downloaded 3 times in different qualities. Enter 720p (or whatever you prefer) in the „Must Contain:“ field. I also recommend to enter „Batch|Patch” in the „Must Not Contain:“ field to avoid downloading batches or patches (obviously).
If you want to, select a directory to save your episodes under (if nothing is set, qBittorrent will download to the default directory set in the options). And check the feed under „Apply Rule to Feeds:“.
If you did everything right, then you should now see the episodes in the quality you selected on the right. (It should look something like this http://puu.sh/meewQ/bfd66f6857.png ).
If you close the RSS Downlaoder window now, qBittorrent will check the feed and start downloading all matching files (If you followed the guide so far and don't want JK Meshi! On your HDD then untick the feed in “Apply Rule to Feeds:”). Set and appropriate refresh interval for the feeds in the settings next to the RSS Downloader Button and you're good to go. qBittorrent will now check the feed for new entries and automatically download anything that fits the rule you set. If you want to add another series, simply click „New subscription“ again, manually edit the url and remember to apply your rule to the feed.
