Are you saying you can setup SABnzbd to do this automatically? If so,how? The only manual interaction I have to do is if the download isn't successful. I think this is the first I heard of setting up a different provider as a backup. It's a great idea.

Yeah just mark those servers as backup servers. This way it will only use those servers when a piece is missing.

In Sabnzbd Configuration:

Servers:

Under the specific server:

Enable as "BackUp Server"

The usenet provider you configure as a backup server will automatically be used to download missing or damaged parts when your primary provider has problems with downloads.

I never noticed that option. This thread has made me realize the benefit to buying a block account from another usenet provider.

Yeah I am thinking I may need to grab one since lately I have had some issues with completion on astraweb.

Anyone have recommendations or know of a deal from another reseller?

Thanks, for some reason I was thinking they were just a reseller of the same provider that astraweb uses.

No, Blocknews is a different reseller then Astraweb. Isn't a Highwinds reseller either.

NZBMatrix is probably the best indexer. It has a lot of user particiaption. For a one off $10 cost you can get VIP membership.

I tried it, but when I searched for "The Daily Show" it only found the first 4 seasons and not the whole 16 seasons. Didn't give me great faith. I'll try it again though.

Make sure you setup the various providers you have an account with and the free ones that don't require an account. Some providers only do current RSS while others allow you to search old postings.

Also one thing to note even if you don't use SB to grab what you won't it can post process the files if you have your usenet program dump the shows into the watched folder.

I even use it to track shows I am watching on Netflix and TiVo recordings. Skipped are episodes I haven't watched and ignored are ones I have.

You have to give Sickbeard time to process the Daily Show when you first add it. It's 16 seasons after all.

I just added the Daily Show to Sickbeard and after waiting awhile it's up to season 10. Restart Sickbeard and let it run for an hour and it will process the Daily show.

This is not typical behavior for Sickbeard. Processing 16 seasons of a show that airs multiple time a week takes time. Over a hundred shows a season.

yeah. I see that now. I guess I was a little impatient that day.

So sickbeard finds the stuff and sab downloads it for me. Any suggestion on how to get rid of all the folders that are left behind? So far, I have folders for game of thrones(last week and this week) and Daily show(every episode) and so on and so on.

Wow completely miss read your problem lol.

There should be an option in SB under post processing I believe that lets you pick whether or not you leave the folder contents. The options vary though depending on what version you are running.

Thanks for the answer. I'll let this run for a day or two and see what it actually does and report back. I'm a little under the weather today, so it is prob not a good day to be screwing with technical stuffs.

Thanks again.

As innocentfreak mentioned look in the Post Processing configuration of Sickbeard. I think you have to uncheck, "Keep Original Files" option.

Regarding BlockNews. Can I find out the files I have downloaded by logging into my account? I can't seem to find if they store that or not.

One last question. How does the backlog work? I add shows I want to it and every x seconds, sickbeard queries the nzb servers looking for it? Is that correct?

No, they only record the amount of traffic you download, not what you download. That's a good thing. It protects you and them.

Under 'Search Options' for Sickbeard, what ever you filled in for "Search Frequency" in minutes.

I wouldn't put in anything under 10 minutes. The NZB indexing sites don't like it if you hammer them every 1 minute. It's considered bad form to do so. Average is 15 minutes for most users.

Thanks again. That was it. Ofcourse it doesn't help that the nzbmatrix is down at the moment either.

Under 'Search Providers' in Sickbeard, set 'Sick Beard Index" to be the primary search provider. You drag and drop to the first position. Make NzbMatrix secondary. Make sure to save changes.

After running for a few days, here is something that I have noticed.

I set everything up in Sick Beard and tied it into sab. In Sick Beard, I told it to use the folders as season folders. I've noticed that some of the downloads are created within different folders. ie...Franklin and Bash. It got the current one last night, but instead of putting it inside the season folder, it created a new one. Same for Hot in Cleveland and The Daily Show. Sick Beard shows that the shows were gotten, but doesn't show in the XX/XXX listings under downloads.

Any thoughts?

You have to set multiple filters within your RSS feeds. You also have to know what order to put in the "Types". This is the proper order: RequiresCat, Requires, Reject, and Accept. All Rejects have to come before any Accepts. I start off all my RSS feeds with: RequiresCat = HD, Requires = 720p. That way it will never download the SD version and only download files that contain 720p (and not 1080). If you are getting duplicates look at all the file names. Then set Reject filters for DD5, FRENCH, REPACK, etc. I rarely get a duplicate any more and if I do I'll go in and add another filter so I will not get it next time.
