I haven't found anything CP does extra to be worthwhile, maybe because I use XBMC.

Hmmm, ok so i added a title... the only bad thing is it doesn't seem to be allow you to filter criteria (i.e. the size of the file, video resolution, or text string) like Couchpotato does...

For example, i typically like BRRIP files that are 720p resolution. Are there any options in nzbsu that would let me filter for this?

Biggest issue I have with CP is that sometimes a less popular movies doesn't come out in every known format, so waiting for the 720p version is going to be a long wait. I wish I could search and then choose a quality, or provide a list of allowed qualities.

you can do that, in a way. you can create your own quality filters in teh options. i have one that searches for DVD quality and 720p, if it finds a 720p copy it doesn't bother with the DVD quality. that's the 'Finished' checkbox as you select what qualities you want it to find.

if it finds a DVD quality first it will download that, and keep it in the cue till it finds a 720p version.

If only it would process and rename movies correctly. Probably 1 in 4 movies is split and half is renamed "The Mighty Ducks 2" and the other half is given some French name (something "mort").

How do you specify quality settings in My Movies...that's one of the biggest purposes of CP. You've been able to set up RSS feeds for searches on different NZB sites for a long time.

With regard to CP renaming issues...I've had it misname a movie maybe three or four times out of maybe a couple hundred movie downloads.

I think perhaps you have something configured wrong if it's not renaming correctly. Granted, if you can't figure out the mis-configuration, CP is a failure...but it IS possible to get it working well.

So I tried Newzbin again for the first time in a long while and it seems like its got everything the other sites do again. (rereading that it was a terrible sentence, whatever).

Is there something I'm missing? Because if it actually has all of the content, Newzbin has the best functionality of any Usenet search site.

You trust them enough to give them billing info?
They raised their limit past ~450 days?

Even back when Newzbin was quality, I had to go to their condensed view quite a bit. Then would check Binsearch, anyway.

The only issue I've had with CP is that it won't move the files to another directory afterwards. Otherwise, it seems to work great.

I haven't used newzbin since their legal issues. After moving on to other sites, I realized how much I dislike how newzbin names nzbs.

Settings > Qualities > Default Qualities has the CP version. With movies, it isn't as simple as SD vs HD, as there are multiple types of HD any particular user might want (Sickbeard actually allows the user to specify this as well).

This is almost certainly a network question more than a Usenet question, but I'm hoping that there's an easy and obvious solution.

Linksys Wireless N router (E2500)
Wireless N USB adapter (2.4 GHz) on a desktop running SABnzbd (Windows 7)
Using astraweb, 12 connections

I'm getting slightly faster downloads compared to my old Linksys WRT54G, but downloads seem to completely overwhelm any other internet traffic. I can't get to Google -- nothing but DNS errors.

I don't think I used any prioritizing settings with my older router; can anyone think of any way to resolve this?

You need to enable QoS (traffic shaping) if your router supports it. This will allow you to prioritize other stuff over "bulk" traffic

Don't know if your router supports it out of the box but you could if you installed a custom firmware like DD-WRT (assuming it's compatible with your model)

Or combine both. The sabnzbd scheduling can bump the speed down to something during the day (I would recommend leaving at least 5mbps), and then have it go unlimited at night. Since sab is the only thing that really saturates my connection, this is easier than screwing around with shaping at the router.

Throttling would work, as others have mentioned - but I'd be suspicious of your router. I've had 3 different wireless models over the years from various vendors and have never seen all other traffic die. Slow down, yes, but not to the point that even a DNS lookup failed. vanilla slimfast mentioned trying a different firmware but if the Linksys is still relatively new, I'd consider returning it and trying another one. Or at least checking for a new firmware version before going to a replacement firmware.

Is there something I can do to get less "Repair failed, not enough repair blocks (1785 short) " type of downloads?

I've been using private trackers for a long time and I signed up for supernews today and half the time I either get rars with spam or this error. Is it always a hit or miss or can I do something to filter things out?

Are you finding files using nzbs.org or some other site? How old are the posts? Supernews has good retention but that's what I usually see when something has just been posted or is really old and not all the posts are within retention anymore.

FYI, if you're really 1785 blocks short, there's probably some mismatching par files in there it's trying to repair with. Try going into your incomplete folder and extracting the rars manually.

Easynews is still the only service with that kind of autounrar stuff, but you don't need it anymore. VLC and other stuff can stream directly out of rars, so all you have to do is tell sabnzbd "don't post-process stuff" with the allow_streaming var in 0.6.

Just drop the file in a folder somewhere and use the manual post-processing feature in Sickbeard.

Cool thanks, sorry the queue-related menus are kind of a mess, I ran out of time to polish it up before release.

The config changes were ripped from zoggy's work on Sickbeard, and I think the layouts work out pretty well.

The RSS tabs I wasn't sure about but I think they work well enough. Maybe should make Filters tab default rather than Settings.

Hmm...you're right. I knew there was something I was missing when I switched from Newzbin, but it's been so long now that I couldn't remember. What are you using that can't scrape episode names based on episode number though?
