    Hi, I use bittorrent to download TV shows that Australian's are a year behind or that the commercial stations decide to stop showing, eg: West Wing. Is there a piece of software that I can set my torrent to start at 00.00 and finish at 09.00, some sort of download manager with times and dates.

    Cheers, The Big D.

    Hope I understood your question.
    You need a way to start your bittorrent client at 00.00 and kill it at 09.00, right?

    Then cron is most probably what you look for. :)

    the problem ehre is that you have to feed it the torrents big guy. it won't just magically download the torrents for you (hard to do because the filenames are usually different).. they do provide RSS feeds on some major sites.. in which case if there was a RSS client that would automatically download the shows you want that would be what you're looking for.. but automatically starting and stopping your client will not do what you're looking for.
