My RPi runs OSMC with SickRage, CouchPotato and Transmission-daemon.
I have been using transmission-daemon for sometime and it works great. Recently I had some I/O trouble with a big torrent and decided to install another BitTorrent client on the box – just in case.
I tried to look around but couldn’t get any other known torrent clients installed on the ARM box (absence of the binaries you can say). There are ways to get x86 utorrent binary installed on RPi but I didn’t want to go that far.

That’s all folks!
