How-to: Add a Season Ticket

To add a Season Ticket, simply click on the "New Season Ticket", enter the text/title/show you are looking for in the "Name:" text box and click the "Add Season Ticket" button


How-to: Restrict a Season Ticket to a certain Feed

You can restrict a Season Ticket to only search for and display files from a specific feed. This can be done by changing the "Feed:" combo box when initially setting up the Season Ticket and clicking "Add Season Ticket". It can also be done with any existing Season Ticket by selecting the tickt in the Season Ticket TreeView, changing the "Feed:" combo box and clicking the "Apply Changes" button.

Selecting a specific feed rather than setting it to 'All' is very useful in preventing multiple versions of the same file being downloaded, as RSS feeds don't usually have duplicate files in their own RSS feed.

Example: Say two different sites, named Elephant and Donkey, post up a link to a video called "Jon Stewart on Crossfire" in their RSS feeds. If you had added the title "Crossfire" to your season tickets and set the Feed to "All", then Videora would automatically download both of these files, even though they are most likely the same video. If however, you set the Feed to Donkey, then you would have only got the video once, thus saving your bandwidth.


How-to: Download the Entire Contents of a Feed

You may wish to create a Season Ticket to download every item found in a specific feed. To do this, create a new Season Ticket as usual. Select the feed you want in the "Feed:" combo box and check the box beside "Download Every File in Feed". By checking this box you are telling Videora to ignore the name of the Season Ticket and always download the entire contents of the specified feed.


How-to: Restrict a Season Ticket to match Option Box content

You can restrict a Season Ticket to only search for and display files that match the content of one of the Option Boxes. This can be done by selecting which option box item you want from their respective combo boxes and clicking the "Apply Changes" button (See Customize Guide for more details on Option Boxes).


How-to: Delete a Season Ticket

Simply select the Season Ticket you want to delete and click the "Delete Season Ticket" button.


How-to: Add a Season Ticket with Boolean Operators

Videora supports the use of the following boolean operators in the "Name:" text box: AND, OR and NOT. While the ANDs and ORs can be used in any combination of each other, however, you can only have one NOT in your Season Ticket "Name:". Also, all boolean operators MUST be in capital letters and must have leading and trailing spaces before the word (i.e. " AND ", " OR ", " NOT"). When using multiple different operators, nest your AND and OR statements in brackets. Examples of such Season Tickets can be seen below.
