It's really weirdly amusing that this attitude is throughout the US (and that most people haven't heard of it) cause in Australia this is offered by almost every ISP. It's called a Naked DSL plan here, in that you don't have a phone line bundled with it. ISPs tend to offer it at $10 more per month than the bundled offering, but obviously you then don't pay the $30/month for phone line rental to bundle. Others let you bundle it with VOIP for less than a dedicated phone line.

I'm on it, for example - it's great.
I don't think that attitude is throughout the US. This may be the first time I've ever heard anything negative about dry loops.

Ugh, Sickbeard keeps grabbing the proper for a file and corrupting it (the original file is ~360mb, after it pulls the proper it's 11mb). Do I have to have the post-processing for sabnzbd set to Download for Sickbeard to handle it properly? It's on +unpack at the moment.

This sounds like the proper is corrupted on usenet. Are you sure it's a good file?

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.

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

How do you specify quality settings in My Movies...that's one of the biggest purposes of CP. You've been able to set up RSS feeds for searches on different NZB sites for a long time.

With regard to CP renaming issues...I've had it misname a movie maybe three or four times out of maybe a couple hundred movie downloads.

I think perhaps you have something configured wrong if it's not renaming correctly. Granted, if you can't figure out the mis-configuration, CP is a failure...but it IS possible to get it working well.

Some routers also allow you to do DNS redirections on the LAN side. dd-wrt, for example, resolves my external address (whatever.serveftp.net) to it's internal address (192.168.1.5) when I'm connected to my LAN. Outside of the network it resolves to the external IP. This lets me run things like myNZB on my iPhone and it'll work no matter where I am (it also works with bookmarks for stuff like CouchPotato and Sickbeard).

It might be worth looking into if your router supports it (for dd-wrt I had to enable "dnsmasq" and configure an additional option like "address=/whatever.serveftp.net/192.168.1.5"). I know m0n0wall and pfSense has this feature as well.

Yes. This is what I do.

I have an dynamic dns with dyndns.org and all my devices whether they are on my home network or away just use "whatupholmes.dyndns-host.com:8080".

I don't understand these speeds people are getting, unless providers have started throttling. Back when Astraweb sucked less (3 years ago), and our techs accidentally disabled throttling in our University digs, I was getting ~25MB/sec (something like 200Mbits or something) from Astraweb, so I always assumed that they can feed you as fast as you can eat.

Currently stuck on a rubbish BT connection that's getting ~250KB/sec on a good day

Hmm. I hadn't noticed anyone except that guy in Japan getting less speeds than their internet connection maxed out at. I certainly max out my internet connection with Supernews at around 8MB/s.

Hmm.. is there a way to tell sabnzbd to only download off of the backup server if the file can't be repaired?

So the priority list would be like

1. Download from primary server. If that fails, then
2. Try to download the PAR2s (from the primary server) and use those to repair, unless we don't have enough parity to repair, in which case
3. Fall back to the backup block provider

Unless I'm retarded and that's how it works already.

Alright cool, thanks. And yeah i have a pretty nice connection (50 meg) and i seem to be maxing it out while downloading. (I get 6.3-5MBPS)

Gonna go cancel my giganews account and go sign up with supernews. Thanks a ton.

FWIW, I routinely break 7MB/s with Supernews and my 60 meg internet connection.

Incidently...that amount of speed is almost worthless to me. I'm almost never just sitting around waiting for something to download. Sickbeard and Couchpotato download stuff, and when I want to watch stuff I sit down and watch what I haven't seen yet.

I'd downgrade to a 20 megabit connection if only it didn't have a 250GB cap on Charter.

I'm not especially good at computers so if I am reading this right, this was a change to the source code and so the only way I can get this fix is to download the source and compile it myself? The latest binary is from months ago so it looks like there has been a lot of fixes that I am missing out on.

If that is the case, is it possible to get precompiled versions of the newest source which aren't official releases? Or is that generally frowned upon.

Your easiest course of action is to download this, the zipped up version of the latest source.

Unzip it somewhere.

Install python.

Install whatever dependencies sickbeard has.

Double click sickbeard.py.

Revel in the fact that you're running a cutting edge version.

All of those steps are pretty easy...if you're using Sickbeard already it shouldn't be beyond your skill level.

I was thinking of a utility that'd be super handy today- Does something exist that scans your media library and Netflix's streaming library then provide a list of things you have that you can delete because they're already on Netflix? Seems like that'd be a really radical addition to both Sickbeard and Couchpotato if you could add Netflix's streaming catalog as another search destination. I mean, if I can stream something in HD off Netflix, there's not much reason to be hogging up drive space keeping a copy locally that I can think of.

Netflix HD streams are like 1/2 to 1/3 the bitrate of your average encode.
