I like sickbeard running on my Nas because it is self contained media center, and my pc doesnt have to be left on all the time. Even though it pretty much is anyhow.

I do have go run couchpotato on my pc though, it seems to to choke out on my Nas.

Have you tried posting to the Nzbdrone support forum? Maybe you can get some help trouble shooting.

Quick follow up.

https://github.com/NzbDrone/NzbDrone/wiki/FAQ

Quote:
Why can't NzbDrone see my files on a remote server?

This can be for various reasons, but the most common is, NzbDrone is running as a service, which causes one of two things:

NzbDrone runs under the SYSTEM account by default which doesn't have access to protected remote file shares.

Solutions:

Run NzbDrone's service as another user that has access to that share How to change a service's user account
Run NzbDrone.exe using the Startup Folder

You're using a mapped network drive (not a UNC path)

Solutions:

Change your paths to UNC paths (\server\share)
Run NzbDrone.exe via the Startup Folder

My wife is a big fan of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. When doing a search, I can find no NZB's whatsoever of the current season. Seasons 1 - 3 are listed but nothing at all for season four. Any ideas why that would be?

It was probably the same person who uploaded Season's 1-3 and for whatever reason they decided to stop and not do Season 4. It's happened for a number of shows I used to download like Iron Chef, Cupcake Wars, Chopped, etc. I haven't been able to download any in the past year or so.

I was able to find the first 4 episodes of the new season but that all. Three episodes are HD and one is SD. I found them on Dognzb.

Anyone got any invites to any of the big index sites they'd be willing to share?

I don't know if you'd consider it "big" but https://www.nmatrix.co.za is in open registration until Feb 1. I've been using it as my go-to site for quite some time.

Most of the 'big name' indexers have disabled invites. Either to manage their user base size or because of abuse of the invite system.

Nzbplanet and Nzbfinder are still open to registration. Not considered 'big name' but they have been around for over a year.

Nzbfinder specializes in HD content. No SD content is indexed.

I've tried to set Sick Beard up but found their documentation to be sketchy at best and terrible at worst. Is there a reliable step-by-step setup guide somewhere?

The Complete Guide for Setting Up SABnzbd, Sick Beard, CouchPotato, and Headphones

There is an alternative to Sickbeard called 'Nzbdrone'. Nzbdrone might be an option to consider.

Looks like I got it configured correctly. I had a couple of stumbling blocks. SABnzbd was pointing to an older Post-Processing Scripts folder. This prevented me from choosing sabToSickBeard.exe script for the tv category setting. I also got the following error message when I had SickBeard download an older episode:

"ERROR: You need an autoProcessTV.cfg file - did you rename and edit the .sample?"

I assume I got this error because I told it to ignore downloading the .sample files. The file downloaded and runs ok. I won't know if it downloads a scheduled episode until next week.

So one of the best ones out there, worth the 1 time fee of $10?

-Seems to be a free 30 day trial

Nice, I am in... I think. It's really slow.

I don't really do much with Usenet nowadays (the bulk of my downloading was when we were losing a TiVo hard drive last year), but good to have options. My primary index site before was NZBs.in.

I have an account now with dognzb but I'm fuzzy about how to configure my newsreader.
Server is dogznb.cr port is 119 and then I input my usename and password?
Doesn't seem to be working
What am I missing?

It's just an indexing site, not a usenet server.

It always seems to slow down when they open up for new members. If you try again tomorrow everything should be back to normal.

I don't have a ton of experience with Usenet but the site is easy to use, looks good, functions well, and seems to have just about everything. It also has Sickbeard-like functionality, in that you can "subscribe" to a show and when the next episode posts, it will push to your Sabnzbd server automatically.

To me it was definitely worth the one-time $10 fee.

I haven't setup Sickbeard/Couch Potato yet so are those apps useless without a nzb site sub or is there something extra that is offered with a sub?

Those apps are useless without a decent indexer. A sub for an indexer usually gives you more daily nzb downloads and access to their API. Sickbeard/Couch Potato access the API of an indexer in order to download tv shows and movies.

A good indexer is very important in order for Sickbeard/Couch Potato to work well.

I would recommend finding at least 2-3 good indexers. Indexers will sometimes have issues and you will need a backup.

Did I miss it? Clicked the link and there seems to be no place to register.
