What this sausage party needs is a big dollop of ketchup! Too bad I didn't make any.


Wait, newzbin is reputable again? What happened with them being taken over by a pack of idiots a year or two ago? I've been using nzbs.org since that and haven't even looked.


Should I give them money again? I really loved the original Newzbin.

I haven't noticed a difference from the old one in terms of posting - a lot of the old editors are still around. It was poo poo for a bit after Newzbin2 was first put up, but nowadays they're pretty good.

Then again I'm not paying for it, there's about 10 of us sharing 1 account.

In other news, I've stopped using Blocknews for the most part for backup, due to it getting raped without my knowledge. I bought a 50GB chunk, and set it up to download a few NZBs overnight. Turns out 3 of the 5 NZBs I queued up were completely nuked from the Supernews server. So, I ended up eating up 20GB of Blocknews due to them being fully intact there.

If supernews does not have what you want wouldnt it be better to simply move to someone that does? Backups are good for the occasional mesed up post but if your backup is becoming what is bneeded to keep your main provider afloat I would think it isnt a backup anymore.

Well, I just modified the script a bit...it was really customized for specific shows. Now it should work for any show that you have to add or subtract from season or episode to match scene to tvdb.

https://github.com/therms/scene2tvdb

I haven't actually tried my modified version because it's late and I'm lazy, but if anyone wants to try it out and let me know how it works I'll fix it if needed.

This should work with shows that just use four digits as their season/episode identification (gently caress those shows). If your show typically has a year in its scene name...well that will gently caress this poo poo up. I'll fix it if that's a problem for anyone.

It will also work with shows that have a scene name identified with "S03E11"-style episode/season identification.

Currently won't work with any other types of season/episode numbering. I can fix that if anyone actually uses this.

If you need to replace any text in the scene name to make sure it matches with the TVDB, you can do that also.

Instructions
  1. Edit the line "season_delta = 2" to add or subtract season numbers.
  2. Edit the line "episode_delta = 0" to add or subtract episode numbers.
  3. Edit the "replace_words" dictionary to change text in the downloaded file/folder names with the specified text. Just change it to {} if you don't want this.
  4. Put the script in the same directory as sickbeards autoProcessTV.py/sabToSickbeard.py. Name it appropriately for the show since you'll need to make a copy of it for each show you want to add.
  5. Create an RSS feed at your provider of choice with a saved search for the show that is misnumbered by the scene or tvdb. (I've only tried this with nzbmatrix)
  6. Subscribe to that feed with SABnzbd+ and specify whatever you named the script in step 4 as the post-processing script for that RSS feed.
  7. Profit from automated downloads of shows with hosed up season/episodes/shownames.

One quick note...make sure when you create the RSS feed you enter a max age of like a week for search results, or you'll end up with a SAB queue full of old episodes you've probably already downloaded.

Total newb question here, and sorry if it is super-dumb (I'm not too good at computing) -- I just downloaded blocknews and everything and am up and running (successful downloads), yet I set this up while I was at a different location from my home (different ISP and IP address). When I get back to my house and try to download again, will the different IP address and ISP cause me any problems requiring some change in setup?

I'm still new to this and I have a security question. The OP says that as long as you don't announce anything or post anything no one will ever know what you're downloading.

Wouldn't the ISP spot suspicious NNTP or encrypted traffic and flag you for investigation? Wouldn't this be double the case when ACTA or SOPA or w/e is ratified?

What exactly is the science behind the anonymity of the downloaders?

They don't really care what you download as long as no one is sending them complaints. However, they do care how much bandwidth you're using regardless of content. You could be downloading 1TB of copyright free flacs and your ISP will get just as pissy.

It's going to be cheaper and easier to just use nzb.su. Seriously. Especially since you apparently have to pay for the plus version of Newznab to get access to all of their super advanced special regexes used for grouping.

So I'm having a hell of a time getting Sickbeard to realize it's on a different drive letter than before. I've tried mass updating show directories to reflect the new drive letter but it doesn't take. I've removed all other references to the original drive letter in preferences and replaced it with the new one.

What do I need to do to fix this? It's pretty much paralyzed the postprocessing I do on my videos.

Just re-quoting this because seriously I have no idea what to do at all and it's pretty much making sickbeard unusable.

Have you tried uninstalled SB entirely and reinstalling it fresh? Deleting all its directories and config files and such?

You should be able to do a "Add Existing Shows" on a virgin install and point it to your new folder with minimal trouble then. I went from Windows to a Linux install and went that route, I just pointed it at the directory with all my folders and it only took about 15 minutes to get it all back to where I had it before. No config files or anything at all brought over.

As long as you have the folders for the shows where you want them most of the work in setting it up again is already done.

I started the whole account/setup at one location that uses Comcast as the ISP, while my house has Verizon as the ISP. I will never be downloading from multiple computers at the same time, so I just wanted to make sure that I wouldn't have to reconfigure everything when I get back to my house where I will be doing 90% of my work.

I was curious about whether adjustments needed to be made if I download from different locations.

Does the fact that the information I'm downloading have names that represent exactly what the files are cause any concern from a monitoring standpoint? Is there a way or should I be changing the names of the info that I download in order to protect my privacy?

Again, I am TOTALLY new to all of this, and am rather excited about the prospect of being able to get information with some semblance of privacy (at least the OP says this, correct)?

If you haven't already trashed your database, you can fix it with two simple SQL commands. Download the command-line shell for whatever OS you're using. Open sickbeard.db in the shell, and enter the following:

update tv_shows set location = replace(location, 'old directory', 'new directory');

update tv_episodes set location = replace(location, 'old directory', 'new directory');

If you're not comfortable with the command-line version, there are GUIs available for Windows, Linux and OSX. Regardless of how you do it, it's just as simple as changing the location in the database to your new directory.

<Edit>
Or, you could go the even simpler route and use the built-in mass edit feature that I just noticed. Go to Manage -> Mass Update. Click the checkbox next to "Edit" (or check the individual shows you want to edit if not all were moved), then click Edit Selected. At the top of the page that comes up click the Edit button next to the path, and browse to the new path.
