    The PirateBay is down. The app has not been working for anybody. Switch feed providers and create custom RSS or use Catch.

    Sorry what is catch?, isnt there any way to tell tvshows to search for
    torrent in kickasstorrents or some other torrent provider?, maybe even have
    a list of them?

    Yes there is. You will have to add each show as a custom subscription and use an RSS feed from kickass torrents, but it does work. That's how I've used TVShows since the devs stopped maintaining the app

    Catch is an app that works in conjunction with showRSS. It's an alternative to tvshows. You set up the shows you want to track on the showRss site, then use catch to get them. Very complex process and has about 90% of the shows most people watch.

    Don: Is it possible to use use a superfeed from showRSS, but instead of using catch, use tvshows custom feed?

    Bill - absolutely. You can use the superfeed, or (I think) use individual show feeds. Either way should get your the same results. With the superfeed, you won't get the show icon on TVShows, since it's a combination of multiple shows. If you go with individual feeds, you can get individual show icons.

    That is nifty. I have to admit, I wasn´t very keen on Catch, but after using it for a short while, I´m very happy with it.

    Took me bit to get comfortable with it as well, but now it's my primary and I only use TVShows for custom subscriptions using KAT rss that aren't available on showRSS.
