    i recently used a guide on this site to side load a torrent app to google tv .

    but due to the limited storage on the the revue i am forced to use a external hardrive . With this setup i notice my speeds are well below standard when dowwnloading.

    anyone seen this before? are there an better torrent clients?

    This sounds like it could possible involve the hardware limitations of the GTV(especially if it was a first gen, they didn't really go too well with it... for instance, you can't even play videogames or have a signal without a delayed input signal -_-). Wouldn't be surprised if either the networking capability or a lack of USB 2.0 was the reason here.

    The problem does not lie with your internet conection or with the torrent client. Downloading directly to the external harddrive will slow down the downloading speed.This is due to the writing speed of your external drive and the transfer speed of USB cable. Assign the destination to your GTV and you would get back your regular download speed.
