Tracker status error - register first

I am using TED (Torrent Episode Downloader) to automatically feed TV episodes to Azureus. After much work I've finally configured all the autocategories and category destinations and gotten it working smoothly. Then, of course, TED had to change something. They now feed from at least two sites that won't scrape properly, producing status errors: Error (Register first: or Error (Register first: So, popular shows that are no doubt available from many engines are failing. I've signed up at, but doing so does not seem to help the downloads since it doesn't happen automatically from Vuze or remain past a reboot. I've already tried TED's support to either block these torrent engines or generate an automatic login.

Is there a way in Vuze to automatically log into torrent engines, to find the same torrent on another engine on failure, or otherwise automatically fix this problem.

Thanks 1,000,000

UPDATE: The beta version of TED does have a switch disabling torrents from private trackers.
See this thread:

That inelegantly solves the problem (not however if the torrent is only available from private trackers or if you have accounts with private trackers and want to use them).
While my immediate problem is resolved, I would still be interested to know if there is a plugin or configuration which would detect private trackers (by the above error) and log in (with provided login info). It may be that most of these trackers have a phrase in them, such as "passkey" which is identifyable.

A challenge out there to plug-in developers.

If you're getting a status error like that, it generally means you need to be using the .torrent files acquired after logging in.
