So I just used ffmpeg to transcode the audio to eac3 and that worked.

Sure, that will work!

I was just pointing out that for a small audio upgrade like a soundbar that decodes it natively or an androidtv box you can fix it permanently and keep the original audio format. Spare time is valuable and I can't think of something more annoying than maintaining a post-processing workflow on my downloads.

Also, making sure I understand this properly: Since I already have Frugal I should be looking out for a provider from a different backbone like Eweka or Abavia right?

you already have a different backbone with frugal. the regular servers are omicron (ninja, demon etc) and then the bonus server is usenet farm. i guess if you really need more find a block account elsewhere.

Trip report: dude was totally nice and moved me right over to the $36 plan, extended my current sub to next November and emailed me a coupon for the 500GB BlockNews block. A+ would whine about missing a sale again

Also, still no-go on that NewsDemon URL with the reddit50 coupon. I've tried different browsers, OS's and even opened a VM and turned off all the browser security settings, still just takes me to a blank white page. At this point I think it's just cursed, I'll check back with them on Cyber Monday or something.

Were you trying the cheaper South African link? I'd only tested the other two which were fine, but that one is giving me the blank page. I'll get rid of that link.

Was hoping someone could help me figure out why my dumb Raspberry Pi / Shield TV setup isn't working.

nzbget is running on my Shield TV with an external HDD mounted to store downloads (/completed). Sonarr/Radarr run on my Pi and point to the Shield install of nzbget for downloading... the download works but always seems to fail on unpacking/renaming/moving.

On the Pi, the external Shield drive is mounted as a network drive, and the downloads in Sonarr/Radarr point to that path as the final location (//pi/nzbgetmout/shield/movies/example_movie , which is where it gets moved from /completed on the Shield). It seems like that's probably the setting that's messing things up, but I don't know of any other way to assign it other than mounting the shield's drive to the Pi and specifying that path for each movie/show location.

Does the Pi have full access and is that directory have the proper permissions to create subfolders for whatever user youíre using? Also check security in NZBGet and see what your UMask is set to (I set mine to 0000 as itís not available outside this house)

I'm only using the free version of Slug personally, but I have lifetimes for most of the services who have it available, and Geek is responsible for fully half of my results, while Slug is 1/3 of the remaining ones.

I've been camping r/usenetinvites for the last few days with Distill, invites for a lot of the more common semi-privates get thrown out on the reg, and you can even request one if you're in a hurry. So far I've collected Slug, Dog, Simply and Planet, though Planet's free account has 0 APIs so it isn't worth anything in Hydra unless you're going to buy in.

So far the only 'for real' free account that's actually useful has been usenet-crawler, base account has like 1000 API calls a day and it's got pretty good finds, second to Geek I'd say. Are there any other indexers that compliment Geek particularly well, something worth keeping an eye on for holiday sales?

Canít think of any at the moment. If itís set at 777 it should allow all access unless thereís a setting on the Shield about how it handles externally attached storage thatís different than how itís accessed on the Pi. When you look at the logs does it give any clues as to why it fails to move/unpack them?

Oh right, sorry. Yeah it's a browser plugin that can watch all or part of a webpage and pop up a little notification whenever it changes. I was able to tell it to watch the thread list of that subreddit, so now it tells me whenever someone creates a new thread and I can check to see if its someone offering invites to a place I don't already have. It's pretty nice if you're already touching a computer all day anyway, and let's face it, if you're reading this thread, on these forums, in TYOL 2020, you're a computer toucher

Just in case anyone was following this, finally got it to work. Swapped my Pi 3B+ for a 4B 2GB:

Installed diet-pi + sabnzbd instead of nzbget
Mounted network drive over samba with dietpi
Mounted usb 3.0 flash drive
Moved dietpi user apps to mounted usb drive
Set sabnzbd storage locations to usb drive
Set radarr/sonarr aliases to sabnzbd locations for movies/tv
Set radarr/sonarr download paths to mounted network drive

Works really well now, and almost as fast as my desktop!

A 1080p file around 5gb takes less than 5 mins. It's pretty negligible compared to my gaming desktop, especially considering this setup is always running and syncs at a more frequent interval. Haven't tried 4K since my drive isn't that big.

I just setup hydra2 for the first time a couple weeks ago and both API and manually searching works fine for me.

The only thing thatís bugging me is that one indexer will block/ban you if you let hydra2 download the nzb from a manual search and automatically hand it off to sabnzbd (anti-account sharing measure). But the alternative, to have hydra send a nzb link to sabnzbd and let it be responsible for downloading the nzb, doesnít work (possibly some quirk of docker networking?). I excluded that indexer from manual searches (it works fine with sonarr/radarr) and use other indexers for manual search but it is one of my better indexers and I miss having its results in manual searches.

If anyone else occasionally grabs 4K shows, don't forget to make sure your indexer settings in Sonarr include the indexer's 4K section. It looks like when you add DogNZB to Sonarr, it defaults to only searching SD and HD. Took me a little while to realize why I couldn't find anything.

is there any solid way to know what shows are out in 4K and which are not? i set everything to prefer 4K but it never gets anything at all, but I have also had a few instances where Sonarr has grabbed a new copy of something and attempted to overwrite it while I was playing it via plex, which was fun.

I just go off the assumption that if it's a Netflix or Amazon Prime show (maybe Hulu?) then it's probably available in 4K. If it airs on cable, then it's not.

Iím not sure if itís because sabnzbd and hydra2 are both running in dockers and have to talk to each other over a docker network but the only way I could get the ďsend to sabnzbdĒ option working in hydra manual searches at all, for any indexers, was to enable the proxy option and click through the warning about that one indexer requiring the ďsend linkĒ option.
I ended up just disabling it as a source for manual searches. It still gets used for sonarr/radarr API searches so itís not that big of a deal, just a bit annoying.

I was about to say I had this working without any additional config, but now I think I may have just been downloading nzb files and throwing them into a shared directory that sabnzbd monitors. I use jails instead of Docker, but could you do something like that?
