    I can't comment on that solution but what I do is download all my torrents using one of my dedicated servers (you could also use a VPS if that's what you have). Then I SSH into the box and download from the movie from my server over the encrypted SSH connection. It's generally much easier / faster downloading the complete file from your server rather than waiting for flaky torrent downloads on your home connection.

    If you get complaints from your host then you say you had a rogue user, a security issue, you got hacked etc.

    The worst torrents to download are from CBS and WB movies,but they seem to mainly focus on people that are seeding it for to much. Whatever extra protection you use,dont seed the file much. Keep it at 1KB/s at most if you dont want problems.

    This isn't my primary focus, but at one time I did a lot of research into P2P filesharing, and from what I remember, they don't prosecute people that download; only upload. If you are making copyrighted material available to others, then they come after you. I don't think they mess with you if you only download.

    Also, from what I remember, you can use the Azureus client and install a couple of plugins that encrypt your traffic. They can crack the encryption, but when they have a list of thousands of people, the ones with encrypted traffic go to the bottom of the list, as it takes more time. I really don't know how it works, but again from what I remember encryption makes it less likely for them to prosecute you. How that affects your ISP limiting your usage is a question I also don't know. RC2 encryption? I seem to remember something like that.

    Anyways, it seems you are real serious and there is significant risk and you are taking time to do this in the best way possible so I would suggest that you not solicit help from a blackhat internet marketing forum, but instead go straight to a forum where the people there do nothing but P2P filesharing.

    Here's one that I go to:
    http://www.p2plife.com/forums/

    One of the primary guys on this forum (I don't know if he owns it or what) is the creator of "MUBlinder", a really great XP cracking tool that keeps Windows Genuine Activation and Windows Validation (whatever the correct phrases are) from turning off an illegal copy of XP. Meaning they have at least one genius there, and generally geniuses hang-out together, so there are probably more.

    Also here:
    http://www.dslreports.com/forums/all
    Extremely high quality talent there, although I don't know how blackhat they get as far as copyright material sharing goes. Some forums ban discussion of it, some allow it to a limited extent. You don't get any quality advice there though, because once the thread gets really interesting, some Mod comes along and closes it because it's crossing some line, or getting close to crossing some line, or the Mod's wife burned the bacon and that crossed the line but the last time he smacked her around he wound up in jail so instead he's going to punish YOU for that burned bacon and close your thread.

    And here:
    http://forum.vuze.com/index.jspa

    Azureus is fully functional, fully supported and is in the class of clients that are going to offer the most protection you can get. There are others, such as BitLord, BitComet and a couple of others, but I've never used those. I picked Azureus and stuck with it, so I wouldn't have to repeat a learning curve. It suits my needs, and I've never been busted.

    Whatever client you choose, I recommend you go to that client's official forum and get your Security solution from the people that do this stuff all day long. IM'ers are all about the sell, not the substance, and they won't be there to hold your hand and dry your widdle eyes when Cox Communications films an episode of "Operation Repo" and that fat dumpy chick with all the piercings and tattoos drags your cable modem out of your house, tied to the back of her bagass tow truck. Best you should get your advice from true experts.

    Cablevision will send a notice that they have to report any illegal downloads to the RIAA. Repeated violations get you more notices and some quality time with the RIAA.
