Torrents without Rar Extraction?

Its a tad annoying when you have all your shows divided in show folders and seasons, but then having to extract each episode individually. Most of the feeds I find on my own come without extraction. Just a minor quibble :)

    You can use software to watch folders for that specific software and auto extract these rar files

    Hi Sean,

    Sorry for the late (late :S) reply. If you uncheck the "additional sources" option in TVShows, you will get less rar'd files. We consider two types of uploaders (for HD, since there are no rar'd files for SD content): "good" ones upload .mkv files, and "bad" ones upload .rar files that contain the .mkv files... if you check the "additional sources" option, TVShows will download the first version that becomes available; if you uncheck it, TVShows will wait a little longer for the "good" version and will only download the "bad" version if the "good" version isn't available after a timeout (12 hours by default).
