fantastic


Since people were discussing their HTPC boxes earlier...
Amazon (select it as seller) has the Antec Mini ITX Case ISK300-65 (with 65-watt power supply) for $32.99 and free shipping. Newegg specs here.
Limited to 22.5" (no 3.5") drives, the 5.25" is slim, and I don't see vesa mounting options, but I'm not bothered.

Edit: Well, that's over with.

Is there any specific reason to run sabnzbd as a windows service?

The only thing I can come up with, is if you have multiple windows users, so it will run regardless of whether the right user is logged in. I'm the only one using my PC, so that's not a concern for me. Any other reason?

WHS and other server flavors of Windows. It means you can have SABnzbd start at OS startup and you don't have to log in. For all other Windows users, run at login should be plenty.

Not sure when this happened in the past week, but I am now getting

"Failed to retrieve RSS from http://nzb.su/rss?blahblahblahblah: text/html is not an XML media type"

when I attempt to force a read feed. I am using the built-in sabnzbd+ rss filtering options, and the rss url has not changed.

Any ideas?

I upgraded to 0.6.1 and now every time I add a new nzb it opens up it's own instance of SAB +1 of whatever the last one was, like localhost9110, 9120 etc. Even when I shut it down and re-start it is still doing it. It's probably something stupid but I'm not sure what

its a problem on win7 where it doesnt see localhost because it binds to ipv6 address, theres a 0.6.2 in testing which embeds curl to test ipv4 localhost because it was easier to do that then upgrade the windows bindary to use python26 over py25 which apparently had this problem (shypike said something like this)

its nothing you are doing, the fix should be out shortly (days?)

Are you sure your ISP's free usenet service works, and doesn't have absolutely poo poo retention? What you're describing is indicative of nearly 100% missing parts, likely due to being outside of your retention.

This is correct. Either it is outside the retention (usually ~30 days for ISPs) or it was taken down with a DMCA request. What's the age of the file?

I'm completely new to Usenet really. Well, I did use it way back in the day when ISP's carried the whole feed and everything was a massive pain in the rear end to use, but I've never really used it in it's current form with modern apps that make it easy to use.

It's like a whole new wonderful land of fun has opened for me!

Anyone using Usenet with Shaw in Canada? So far using the SSL connection seems to prevent any throttling, but I've heard some people claiming that SSL'd Usenet is not being recorded against their bandwidth caps. Anyone know if this is true or not?

I haven't dealt with Shaw(USA Goon here) but SSLed bandwidth will still be held against your caps. SSL just hides which ISOs and horse porn you download, but your ISP will still know you're downloading something.

loving passworded rar files without comments on the original post that have a password.txt file that points to some useless loving website sucking up all my bytes

Ok, I'm better. If you haven't tried it in awhile, Couch Potato seems much more stable for me. I never had major issues, but it seemed janky compared to Sickbeard. The notification options and renaming stuff seems to be working nicely, though.

We've been intermittently discussing building a pre-processing script that determines: 1) is a post passworded? 2) if not, is the post complete? 3) if not, is the post at least reparable?

Should be pretty easy. We've got stuff to detect passwording, and we've got stuff to detect completeness, and we've got stuff to detect reparability, we just don't have a thing that does ALL of these things and does them as a pre-processing script.

... but it should be doable!

I get that, but people were saying it was some sort of error on Shaw's part that encrypted Usenet traffic wasn't being recorded for some reason. I guess I'll just have to wait a couple of days and see what my usage meter says.

If its just one rar file of one large file, like a movie, I just don't bother any more. Movies with decent codec don't need more compression. The only reason to put it in a rar is rubbish like this. The rar file has two files in it, one is another rar the other is a txt file with a link where you have to 'register' for the 'password'. Good luck with that scam...

This sounds great! There's nothing more aggravating than downloading 5+gb of useless data on a slow connection.

Anyone that uses Couch Potato: does trailer downloading work for you? It fails when I try to get trailers for existing movies (the logs show that it matches the movies up with trailers on Apple's site, then fails when the actual download starts). Although I have the "download trailer" option checked, all I get for new movies is the nfo and tbn file.

Also, why doesn't it write a XBMC specific nfo file? An implementation like SickBeard, where the user can choose the type of metadata to download, would be perfect.

As an aside, I hope that the Sickbeard guys eventually roll in movies. I just like the way that app works better.

Why do you want more data in the nfo? What CouchPotato puts in there just ensures that XBMC scrapes the right movie.

Midgetspy and I have talked in the past about movies. Theyre not a good fit for SB. They work completely different from the way TV shows do so you'd end up with completely different code and UI...at which point you should've just built a different app to begin with.

That being said, I would have built CP completely different from the way Ruudberger built it. Having hacked on the code to improve renaming and add XBMC integration I can say its pretty obvious that he was new-ish to Python and maybe even to coding. I'm still glad someone stepped up to the plate and made something usable though.

The nfo just seems wasteful. CP already knows the movie name and everything else, so why not just create the full nfo file for XBMC instead of relying upon XBMC to grab it later? Similar to the way SB writes the full nfo per episode, so updating the library goes quick when it's time to import those shows.

The Gunslinger

Do not forget the face of your father.

It's just a design choice, you have to update every time an API changes and maybe the author just doesn't want to deal with it. It tells XBMC the proper info to scrape so that's good enough for me. Unless you're adding a lot of titles at once it probably adds five seconds or less to the update process. I have XBMC update the library at startup and on average the whole process takes less than 15 seconds on my SSD. I don't recall it being much higher on my mechanical drive either.

CP still does quite a bit more, though. Way more advanced options for categories, metadata/trailer download (when it's working), and notifications. Thanks for pointing that feature out, though, I had no idea it existed.

I also tossed $15 towards nzb.su, just because.

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