    I'm looking for a way to have torrent RSS feeds (like those by dailytvtorrents.org) monitored by my Logitech Revue and new torrents immediately downloaded via Swarm.

    Any ideas?

    Integrating with other torrent clients is also possible.

    If you're comfortable with setting it up I bet you could use Tasker.
    Set up Tasker to poll the feed's URL every x minutes. Parse the page with a regex to grab the torrent's link. Have Tasker open Swarm with the torrent's info as the parameters.

    I don't really use torrents so I'm not familiar with Swarm but from its Play Store description it looks like Swarm allows other programs to guide it.
    If you attempt this I would love to hear the results.
