when u install the skynet exe, tell it to add module to prgdvb, then open up your progdvb modules folder. open the skynet.ini file and add pids [down near the bottom of the file] and also change the drive directory that u want files saved to eg
disk=d:\
dir_temp=d:\inet\temp
dir_ok=d:\inet
you may have to create a folder inet and a folder temp within inet.
It is a fantastic module, I have files up to 1.6 gig, very kind to cpu.

Well basically, the g key brings up the file types and min max file sizes. U use the arrow keys to scroll and the + & - keys on the numpad to edit file sizes , adding a plus to a file type tells skynet to grab that sort of file. pushing g again makes the edit screen disappear and ctrl+s saves your edited setting. then the arrow keys scrolls up and down the stripes and the delete key will delete a file that is highlighted. m & n keys scroll the text info at the bottom of the screen.There are a few more commands that will take too long to describe but there is an english translation of the readme floating around somewhere. Its all a bit dossy, but easy to get the hang of. I am in Australia so I have limited sats to play with. Lyngsat shows data transponders [the pink ones] and footprints for sats. Hope this helps.

Hi,

Would one of you mind explaining what SKYNET is and what it's capable of?
Sounds very interesting...

Stick.

sorry abaoel I am not sure what you mean by download schedules. Have you been having any success with the skynet module?
Hi Clarence,

I see the bars going up and down, but one of my friends told me that there are schedules on the internet of files (DIVX FILES) to be transmitted. Those are the files I want.

Best Regards

I think skynet is always going to be pot luck, if you leave it going 24/7 you should get some large avi files. I have experimented with a few different sats and sp's. some have heaps of traffic but low bandwidth, lots of timeouts, others have low traffic and occationally very high bandwidth users. The fastest I have seen so far is 350 kbps, but that is rare. an average good speed is 50kbps. A friend of mine got a 1.8 gb game last week. Do you have some different sats and isp's to experiment with?
