Has anyone moved from Sickbeard to NzbDrone?

http://nzbdrone.com/

It's written in .Net so windows only at this stage. But from what I've read it basically has all the features of Sickbeard but with a much, much quicker scraping engine.

I'll end up trying it for the sake of trying it, but just wondering if anyone else has made the switch?

I've yet to find one person online that has tried it and then gone back to Sickbeard. Everyone says it's superior and sticks with it, which I kind of find hard to believe...

Why would we want to move from something that works?

Edit: OK, maybe sounded harsh. But seriously, Sickbeard integrates so well with SABnzbd why would you want to break that up?

I believe the big advantage of it is that NZBDrone integrates with QEM (or whatever that service is that maps scene releases to the tvdb).

There is a new build coming soon to work with the new nzbs.org site so maybe it will be fixed then.

You can give nzb.su a shot

This hat isn't the only
thing that's big

Switching to nzbdrone right now, so far pretty painless. Only complaint is that there's no option to not rename.


edit: still doesn't handle a couple of certain popular late night shows on comedy central properly, but I think that's more a matter of the indexers than anything else. Back to an annoying RSS feed,

edit2: also, not flexible enough to edit/point a show to the correct version on thetvdb or w/e. A certain popular show on Monday nights starring Nathan Fillion is scanning as a boring ancient ruin exploration series instead of the actual show. I could mitigate this by adding the original air date to the show folder name, but I feel like that shouldn't be necessary.

edit3: no option to not rename files and just straight up copy them to the correct season folder. gently caress this, i'm done, back to sickbeard.

Why do you not have the Sick Beard Index at the top of your providers list? That should make other providers nearly unnecessary.

I'm glad that it's not just me or something weird with Sickbeard. I cleared out my error log today and all of them were from NZBMatrix.

I think I'm just going to uncheck it in Settings and see if it still pulls everything from nzb.su or the new beta nzb.org.

Oddly enough, when one of them failed to load in SAB, I rechecked in Sickbeard and that one came from the Sickbeard indexer.

I've actually gotten less hits from the Sickbeard indexer since I put it at the top of the list. Instead of coming solidly from NZB.su it's a mishmash between what I presume to be groups. One scrape says IMMERSE which is a release group and others say things like WPI or RUNNER. Does the Sickbeard indexer just compile multiple RSS feeds from release groups? I've not seen a place to really read up on what or where it comes from.

I think maybe 9 times out of 10, Sickbeard grabs from the SB Index. The rest split between nzb.su and nzbs.org. I would feel comfortable using just the built-in Index if you didn't have or feel like getting access to the others.

Vykk.Draygo

I would imagine it would grab from the Sickbeard Index 100% of the time if you didn't give it an alternative. Stuff probably just occasionally hits the other indexers first so it grabs from those.

I can't seem to get the Sickbeard portion of that working which really is quite irritating since it auto detected both Couchpotato and SAB.

Does anyone else get errors with using the sickbeard index?

Not sure what is causing this but ever since setting up everything on my synology, I'll occasionally get
code:
 SEARCHQUEUE-RSS-SEARCH :: Error loading Sick Beard Index URL: (, URLError(error(110, 'Connection timed out'),), ) - [Errno 110] Connection timed out
I've tried googling this but all the results refer to other indexes, not sickbeard's own index. Is this a common issue or could some setting be funky?

Repairing failed, 'Nonetype' object has no attribute 'remove'

I tried to google for that error, but couldn't find what the answer. I am not very experienced in Linux, so any help would be appreciated.

Does anyone have a list of ports supernews uses? The FAQ on the site only lists 119, 23 and 80. In particular I want to know if I can use SSL port 443

The truth is just an excuse for a lack of imagination.

I use SSL port 443 with Supernews. Works fine.

Edit: Says you can use SSL on 443 and 563 here: http://www.supernews.com/support/config.html

So I have some downloads that are failing to repair and I'm curious of what my options are regarding downloading the proper parity files or missing archives so that I don't have to try re-downloading the entire thing as they are all rather large.

Is this the sort of problem that having a separate backup provider would fix? None of the nzbs in question are older than 300 days so I doubt it's a retention problem. This never happened before I offloaded SABnzbd duties to a Synology DS411slim but I also wasn't downloading higher quality (RE: larger) files then either.

Yes, that's why people usually get them. Just be sure your unlimited and block providers are from different back-ends.

Friendly Reminder: NZBmatrix is a less-than-ideal indexer. Apparently today they decided it was time to block all RSS requests from Sickbeard because they're convinced this commit (which does nothing but increase logging) is causing their RSS server to keel over, something it is frequently good at doing all on its own.

But, you know, it HAS to be Sickbeard, because they're making fun of NZBmatrix in the commit message! Those dastardly SB devs did it on purpose, and refuse to cooperate! [img-rollbarf]

Not at all being too paranoid. But hey, it's been awhile since they took over and they haven't done anything obviously dubious lately, but they're far from the only game in town anymore.

Seriously. In Sickbeard, set SB Index as your primary, supplement with nzb.su. Pay for nzb.su if you find it using more than the freebie account can handle. This is usually fine unless you're a crazy person who mirrors the entire content of Usenet on a nightly basis. Then you might have to branch out and further supplement with dognzb or something else from the list.

I've been out of the loop for a while, so I didn't even know SB Index existed until now. Of course, all I seem to get is is the previously mentioned "Error loading Sick Beard Index URL" message, but I guess I'll just keep trying. I've got some things in the backlog that I'm hoping this will find. Been using nzbs.org primarily until now. I'm not sure how they rank in the grand scheme of things.

One thing that I could use help with, though... after a SB download completes, the sabToSickbeard script fires off and does the whole rename thing, but I end up with a duplicate copy in the SABnzbd downloads folder. I have Processing set to +Delete, but it looks like all that does is delete the RARs. Is there a way to delete the download automatically after SB processes it? Seems like I used to have that configured...
