    Okay, that's it for now on the invites. It let me send a lot more than it said I actually have. If they don't work let me know but I may not be able to do anything about it. I sent a total of 8 even though it told me I only had 4 to give.

    I don't have very good luck with indexing sites. First nzbmatrix, and now the replacement site I was using, nzbs.in, closed down. :(

    No it's not. It was an April 1, prank the Admin played on users. The site is still up and running.

    Oh... well that wasn't very funny! :) They should probably take that down since it is a week later... I clicked on login and got that message tonight. I would have thought it was a joke if I'd gotten a week ago. :)

    Someone hooked me up with nzb.su so I'm getting my missed Grimm's via that now.

    I am still dealing with fallout from my corrupted hard drive back in September! I ended up swapping it out the week after Christmas, when I finally wasn't recording anything, only I forgot to put back some of the shows that were on super long break and had nothing coming up in the guide for a long time.

    Try clearing your cache. The Admin only made the site unavailable for a few hours.

    I have 10 more invites to nzb.su for some reason. Send me a PM with your email address and I'll send you one.

    The DMCA takedowns are just ridiculous these days. One needs to have watchlists set up for most things to get anything out of usenet.

    I have not really had any problems lately... I recently have had to download a bunch of Grimms and a bunch of NCIS and NCIS:LA, and was able to complete them without problem. I am still on my Astraweb 1 TB block, and I have a 5 GB one at Blocknews for a backup.

    I think some networks or shows are more vigilant than others. Nashville in particular gave me a lot of headaches.

    Most Showtime and HBO shows are gone within hours.

    I haven't had any issues, my Sickbeard Polls pretty regularly though and I have 30Mbits down.

    I've noticed more being pulled from my Blocknews account though on older items. MY two servers are thankfully on two different backbones. Easynews and Blocknews.

    Yeah, watchlists (SB, etc.) are fine. It's the manual stuff that's a problem.

    Try an overseas news provider. They are suppose to be better at leaving things up for a little longer.

    I'm going to try one of them as soon as my yearly subscription is over.

    Why are you doing it manually?

    One-off shoes you want to grab, specials, movies, things that you don't watch regularly. Not everything is a recurring episode in a series...

    For most things there is a program for that. For others you could also setup a RSS feed for that specific item in sabnzbd. Of course you would need to know the title before the air date at least when it comes to specials.

    I do all my downloads manually.

    This isn't my primary source of stuff, this is just my backup source when my primary (Comcast) doesn't record or has been lost, for whatever reasons.

    I am the same way actually hence all the TiVos. I just found with the latest craze of take downs, it is easier to be safe rather than sorry.

    This.
    Also, let's say you discover you like a show that's in its 4th season. One used to be able to just grab all the episodes from the previous seasons. These days you hear about a new show that started 2 weeks ago, and you're pretty much SOL.
