Yeah, a lot of groups embed their name in the metadata's title field rather than the actual title of the show/movie, and VLC happily slaps that right up on the screen if you have the OSD enabled. Certainly none of my TV shows ever display "EVO" at the beginning of every episode. *cough* If you're in the mood, changing that info to the right stuff in an MKV file can be done easily with the Header Editor function in MKVToolnix. That program is also wonderful for re-re-muxing files to strip out any audio and subtitle tracks you might not want.

You just fucked with the wrong Mexican.


I've got a weird Sonarr issue with the calendar not showing upcoming showtimes for some shows. Iím running version 2.0.0.5344 on Win10.

I added a series last week, and it added without issue.

The series exists on the tvdb and it has projected show times.

However the first airing came and went the show did not show in the calendar. I was able to do an autosearch and get the episode but the upcoming show time (for Saturday) but the show still does not appear in the calendar.

Iíve tried toggling monitoring, restarting Sonarr, and rebooting with no joy. Thereís nothing in the logs, because itís taking no action.

Any ideas?

COWABUNGA DUDES!



Anyone on Sonarr (v3 only perhaps) finding their usenet nzb provider API isn't returning results for a show, but if you do a search on the site by hand it comes up fine? I've seen it every so often in the past, but a few times this week I've added a show with episodes that have aired and done a scan and it's grabbed from torrents instead, despite being further down the chain because it can't see anything. It's weird.

If it's specifically 4K stuff, you probably don't have the 4K category added in Sonarr. Otherwise, maybe you're out of your daily allotted API calls?

It's not 4K stuff (but I do have that category added after realizing it needed to be done by hand), but good point about the API calls... alas I just checked and I'm waaaaaaaay under... 140/1000 hits and 15/1000 adds. And I can check other things fine afterwards, it just seems to be *some* things. I need to work out what they have in common I think, and I'll make a note about which shows it is and see if it resolves or not after some time has passed. The ones I looked at today were a few days old, so won't be down to lag or anything.

e: think I've found it, in the indexer they don't have a 'View Series' option for these files whereas most things do. I'm guessing that's something that uses the TVDB identifier and that Sonarr relies on it to match the property. At least it means it's not something on my side at least, and it's not going to occur super often and I just got unlucky a few times this week.

Is this why some of my ISOs randomly don't get renamed properly when they display in Plex? Most things are fine, "The ISO", "The ISO 2: The Reckoning" etc. But then every once in a while I'll add one and it will come up "The.ISO.3.-.Electric.Boogaloo.(2018)[ISO_TEAM].iso" and I'll have to go rename it by hand.

Not that I'm aware of. I would be extremely cautious about installing software from Usenet since anyone can tack on malware and post it.

Sonarr - TV Shows
Radarr - Movies
Bazarr - Subtitles
Lidarr - Music (Most people have had poor luck with this)
Mylar - Comics
Lazy Librarian - Books (Another one where people have had mixed results at best)
NZBHydra - Wrap all your indexers into one API app and have the above apps call that. Allows rate limits for API calls per indexer which can keep you from getting rate limited.

I mean what exactly are you looking to use it for? Most commonly it's for TV/Movies as mentioned

You can manually search (either using NZBHydra2 or just individual Indexer sites) for software and it's pretty decent, but at the same time there isn't as much need when you can almost certainly use Torrents which is likely even better for software (or at least ability to only choose from verified/clean torrents whereas usenet would be unvetted and no way to read comments or w/e), and prob not gunna get dmca notices or whatever anyways.

How's Astraweb these days?

They sent me an offer for a $2.99/mo unlimited plan for life right now (discounted from $15.00). I've been with Frugalnewsnet for years without any problems, but if Astraweb's good and reliable, I might wanna get a backup for that price.

ive been using astraweb with blocknews for backup for years. apparently they're both hw media these days (maybe always?), so that's kind of useless, but i've never had a problem with astraweb. i remember seeing lots of files that were broken due to dmca takedowns a while ago, but i haven't seen that in a while. i have no idea if this is because fewer requests are being generated, they're not honoring them (seems unlikely), or my usage patterns have changed. i strongly suspect the latter, because my usage patterns have indeed changed quite a bit over the past few years

i had always purchased blocks before 'cause it was cheaper that way with my usage patterns, but the $3/mo deal made me upgrade to the unlimited plan. $36/year in perpetuity is pretty dang good.

how's your frugalusenet/usenet.farm experience? i'm in their free trial right now, and if it ends up being useful i'll probably grab a block

I've been on the annual $50 unlimited plan since 2011 (back then it was $60 I think) and it's super smooth sailing. Never had an issue as far as I remember. Full speed (550Mbit on my end), 3000 days retention, multiple servers... actually really no reason to get a backup, but a "just in case" for $36/year is tempting.

Astraweb and Frugal are the same backbone. The only thing you'd be getting by adding an Astraweb account is access to things that are 3000+ days old. You could add a 2TB block from Newsdemon for $15 to accomplish the same thing.

If you're happy with Frugal, you can save $10 by switching to this $40/year plan. It includes a 300GB block from blocknews, so you wouldn't need that Newsdemon block. If you message their support they might switch you over right now.

Astraweb just sent me that offer and it's apparently limited to 1TB a month. Another reason not to get it.

edit: weird, they sent me an earlier one that said unlimited but this one says 1000GB

Still trying to nail down exactly how backbones work in my mind: NewsHosting is on Highwinds, which also gets resold to Frugal, so there's no benefit to having both, right? Aside from redundancy if an entire service were to go down, but that sounds like a pretty slight edge-case. Could even that still be worth it for 20bux a year or is it literally redundant search results?

Newshosting and Frugal give you access to the same exact articles on the same exact servers. If a file isn't available on Frugal it won't be on Newshosting. The only big difference between the two is that Frugal is limited to 3000 days while Newshosting has the full 4400 days. Frugal does also give you 1TB a month from usenet.farm as a bonus.

Use one or the other, but there's no need for both

Back in May, I had to reissue my credit card due to fraud, and Astraweb sent me an email that the old card didn't work but no worries - just sign up again for $3.99 a mo! It's not as good as a price as sedative's offer but it's unlimited.

I'm a touch concerned. Even if I have Newsdemon and Newshosting both as level 0 servers in NZBGet, I'm still only getting 45MB/s on a 1gbps connection. That download destination is an SSD as well.

I get 95MB/sec on a gigabit with Newshosting most of the time, US server on port 563 SSL with 50 connections. Could be the route to your ISP, could be the ISP traffic shaping etc. thereís just a lot of factors.
