First let me lay out what I have and how I use it, and then I'll go thru the Q&A from the sticky.
I am currently using a private tracker (IPT) that I have no real issues with. I pay every 6 months, and use it daily. I mainly grab movies and TV shows. I also have a VPN that I am fairly happy with, although I haven't figured out the port-forwarding they offer.
I have 3 computers that tie all this together:
-A centos7 box that runs Medusa. I have a 4x2tb raid array for storage of the TV shows. There are ~10000 files and 5tb of used space on the array. Medusa grabs torrents from the tracker and sends them to:
-An ubuntu box that runs transmission. It connects to the array on the centos machine via NFS. This machine uses the VPN, it is not visible outside my home network. This machine also runs Couchpotato. After downloading torrents, I view them on:
-My win10 machine running Plex. It connects to the raid array on centos via CIFS mount. I have a 2x4tb storage on this machine that stores the movies. There are 1250 files using 2.7tb. This machine is a few months old and has tons of horsepower - [email protected]
, 32gb ram, 2x1tb 970 EVO m.2 drives. Plex runs with no issues.
Putting all this together was fun, but now I have 3 computers running all the time just so I can watch tv shows and movies I download. I've been hearing more and more about seedboxes, I was hoping I could use one to do the work of the 2 linux boxes as far as downloading and seeding torrents (at least to start), and I'm guessing I move the files to my local network after they've been downloaded, then I also can leave them up for seeding on the seedbox to maintain a good ratio. This is where I'm a bit fuzzy....should I leave well enough alone or spend a bit to streamline the whole thing?
Here's the Q&A:
What is the primary reason for getting a seedbox? DMCA? Ratio? Wife discovered Porn? Please expand.
See above, trying to simply my existing setup and maybe tighten security.
Location (yours and/or the vendors)? Most seedboxes are concentrated in Europe (France, Netherlands, Germany)
I'm in USA
Particular speed (100M, 1G, 10G, Ludicrous Speed, etc)? Slow, fast, fastest.
Not the biggest factor, but faster is always better. I get 300Mbps from my ISP.
Do you use public trackers extensively?
Almost never. In 4-5 years, I've gotten one notice from my ISP, it was a torrent I got from TPB.
How much experience do you have with seedboxes, linux, and alike? Need a lot of handholding?
Newb on seedboxes, pretty good on linux (for a machinist).
Is your location problematic? e.g. I'm at university. I'm one of three people on the island of Yap.
Particular payment methods the vendor needs to accept: bitcoin, paypal, paysafecard, Turkish Lire?
Paypal preferred, no bitcoin.
Particular content: Games, TV shows, Anime; Movies; Remuxes; the oeuvre of Fatty Arbuckle?
TV and Movies
Using problemsome trackers like public ones or challenging trackers like RED and CHD?
No. Using IPT for last 3 years.
Any idea on how much bandwidth you need a month? 1TB; 3TB; 30TB?
We use 1-2tb /month
Are you a paranoiac, need special safety assurances?
Why, did someone say I was paranoid?
Other more unique requirements? You want to run a website too; Azureus is your favorite client, can't live without it; Or god forbid you really, really need Windows.
Medusa for sure, transmission or equivalent, rsync, ssh
