Yes. I thought that was an option. You mean it's 3D ONLY? No wonder the file's so big.

Yes, it's 3d only. You have to have a 3d tv and a media player capable of playing 3d video files.

My TV in the bedroom has 3d Capability but to be honest with you, I've never used it and it didn't come with the Glasses. I use pyTiVo to watch these and I assume TiVo's can't play 3d? Who knows... I don't have the glasses anyway.

Most likely the file your trying to download is no longer on your usenet providers server. Or there was something wrong with it when it was uploaded.

There are usually multiple copies of the same file on usenet. Try finding a different copy to download.

Who is your usenet provider?

My provider is free.xsusenet.com. The file is the size (114MB). Is it because it's free and I've reached my limit. I usually download less than 200MB per week.

They have a 25 gig a month limit and 10 days retention on the free account. Is the file your downloading older then 10 days?

It's only a couple of days old. So now I really don't get why.

I've never used Usenet before so I appreciate your help.

What usenet client are you using? I recommend 'Sabnzbd' for a usenet client. It automates everything.

Is this happening with just this particular file?

If it's happening to just this particular file then it most likely it's a problem with the file itself. Nothing you can do about it. Try looking for a different copy of the file you want.

If it's happening with every file you try downloading then it could be a problem with how you have your usenet client configured. Are you certain your connecting to Xsusenet correctly? Along with the limitations I mentioned before your also limited to 2 connections to their server and are speed capped to 1mbit.

Here is a simple how to guide to get you up and running on usenet:

For the Couch Potato users. What is your hit rate on adding movies to the list that are either in the theater now or coming out to DVD/BluRay soon?

I feel like over the past few months, only 1 out of every 10 I try and add, I am able to.

Which version are you using? The 2.0 version was supposed to be a lot better in that regard.


From the couchpotato forum
Version 2 has the following:

A(lot) better search function - Many of the search providers have changed (gone away, revised their APIs, etc). Version 2 will be needed to access many of these.
Manager - updates existing movies in your library to better qualities
API Support - To integrate with other apps (e.g. most of the Android/iPhone apps use the v2 APIs.
Support and updates from Ruud (the developer) - This is of course the most important. Version 1 will no longer be supported.
You can of course still use it, but there will be no more updates, and not a lot of effort put into supporting problems. This forum deals with supporting Version 2.

It is. I have no idea why they don't do more to let the people using the old version know that there is a better version available.

Even besides the missing new movie part of the old one, the interface on this one is awesome!!!!!

Never thought to look for a whole new version, since there is the check for update button!

Newzbin shut its doors for the final time. As the parents of nzb format this is a sad day indeed. In its heyday it was a glorious site, especially the nzb comment system which I don't think has been replicated since. Thanks Newzbin for the years.

Newzbin has been my go-to index, my favorite. Sad day indeed.

Definitely a sad day. I was a member of newzbin for years but never went to the second incarnation. I prefer the newznab sites like nzb.su and dognzb.cr now as they are automated and don't rely on editors.

I also liked the first Newzbin but I stayed away from the second one. From what they posted on their site, I wasn't missing much.

Quote:
For a long time we have struggled with poor indexing of Usenet, poor numbers of reports caused by the majority of our editors dropping out & no-one replacing them. Our servers have been unstable and crashing on a regular basis meaning the NZBs & NFOs are unavailable for long periods and we don't have the money to replace them.
Quote:
The tragedy is this: unlike Newzbin1 we are 100% DMCA compliant. We have acted on every DMCA notice we received without stalling or playing games: if there was a DMCA complaint the report was gone. Period.
I prefer the automated indexers also. I have pretty much all my regular downloads (TV and Movies) automated via remote nzb push to Sabnzbd from the dognzb.cr website. I've totally replaced Sickbeard and Couchpotato.

Is the remote nzb push on dognzb only available to premium/VIP subs? I use nzbs.org as my main newznab site but that remote push sounds tasty.

+1 to this.

nzbmatrix is hit and miss for me sometimes. It would be great to have an alternative.

I have been using nzbmatrix... I'm not sure what is hit and miss? That is a real question, not snark. I don't really know enough about it other than to use it. Once in a while, I find something that I can't completely download because something is corrupt, is that what is hit or miss? Or is that the fault of Astraweb?

It's the reporting on nzbmatrix that isn't the best.
Yeah, can I get an invite to dognzb.cr?

Probably Astraweb, they've automated their DMCA takedown process which shortens the time completion is available. It used to be they'd remove blocks for the notices which if you had a backup you could complete but now they're completely gone.

Edit: Dognzb invite achieved.

With Remote Push of dognzb, do you get any post-processing benefits anywhere?

Using Sickbeard, my downloads are automatically renamed properly, include season #, episode # and title, which makes it easy for plex and boxee to get metadata. And the files are automatically copied into the right folders for me on my server.

All I have to do is turn on my TV and watch.

Does remote push with dognzb do any of that for you?
