Slow Downloads?
« on: March 02, 2014, 09:31:32 AM »
Am I the only one with really slow download times?  The last post with this problem was over a year and half ago.  I've tried on two different computers on different networks, and it is both slow.  I even tried at work, where we have gigabit to the desktop.  Still getting about 200kbs.

I downloaded the 10 gig HD Night of the Living Dead in about 15 minutes, so their servers can certainly put it out when needed! Ultimately there is a lot that effects the connection between you and the Rifftrax servers. from a technical level you would probably need to provide information like a traceroute or something. However in the short term you could do something like grab the free download manager that was discussed in the HD thread, that should help.

No rramsey, you're not the only one - I'm getting the same abysmal speed. And it's not an ATT issue for me (unbelievably). And BathTub, what download manager in what HD tread? Search turned up nothing.

Here's one of them

It's literally called 'Free Download Manager'.

Just used it again to get Zwindy HD in 10 minutes. It's fanatastic.
