Not really. But they have been known to open on 'Holidays'. This last time it was Valentines Day.

So, circle any upcoming Holidays on your Calendar keep an eye open on those days.

I would recommend finding at least 2-3 good indexers. Indexers will sometimes have issues and you will need a backup.
Ah, thanks for the info. I will probably setup Sickbeard and Couch Potato in the next few weeks so I probably should pay the $10 then.

Besides Dognzb, what other indexing sites (that provide a good API for SB/CP) should I monitor for open registration?

Nzb.su is a much sought after indexer.

Keep an eye out on Reddit. Indexer openings are sometimes posted there.

http://www.reddit.com/r/usenet/

There are few indexers that are still open. They may not be as famous but they are pretty good.

nzbfinder.ws
oznzb.com
nzbplanet.net

I've got no idea since I'm happy with the indexers I'm already signed up with. But the API access is usually to do with the number of times a program like Sickbeard can query the site to make sure it doesn't get overloaded. Free users might get a few dozen or a hundred while paid users get quite a few more. It seems to be a 24hr limit with the places I use, I'm not sure about this one.

It didn't use to do this but now nzb.su logs me out after a short period of activity. Is this just on my local pc or universal?

Looks like I have a couple nzb.su invitations. The first two PMs with an email address get them.

It's to become a VIP member (subscribe). Pretty cheap.

I use NZBs(dot)ORG and the Sick Beard Index. I should probably look at signing up for another indexer but I've never had any problems getting anything that I wanted. I don't believe registration is open though and apparently they don't give users invites because I've never gotten one to give out.

eta: Just signed up with nMatrix, thanks for the heads up. Nice to know I have a backup in case I ever need it.

I'm such an infrequent user that I just stick with the free ones. I did pay for a lifetime subscription to one site (nzbmatrix I think it was), and then they disappeared, so I am not going to do that again.

Is the yearly $8 fee for Nzb.su worth it over the one time $10 fee for Dognzb?

It's $10 a year for Nzb.su. If you can afford it, I would pay for both. You need at least 2-3 reliable indexers because you need a backup. Nzb.su is one of the oldest indexers still running. It has a proven track record. Nzb.su recently upgrade the site infrastructure making it even more reliable. Given it's pay subscription model, it should never be hurting for money to pay the bills.

Dognzb has some great features, like their remote push feature (Watchlists). Dognzb can replace Sickbeard and Couchpotato with it's remote push. Dog also has a Video game watchlist. Dognzb also has been rock solid reliable.

If I had to choose just one, I would go with Dognzb. It just has more useful features. Features you might be interested in using in the future. Dognzb is constantly being improved and it's admin keeps things running smoothly.

I had a whole bunch of them before but now I have 0, I guess they have closed new registrations, I'll try to remember to come back here when I have invites again.

Looks like they are re-working the invite system right now and that will be revamped in a few weeks.

Invites have been disabled for now. There has been some abuse on the invite system by some users (selling invites), so we decided to suspend the invite functionality. Instead, we will open the site a couple of times a year, and we will let users know beforehand here on the forum on when to expect such openings.

Currently, it's under consideration if the invite functionality will be restored. If it does, it would be under much more strict guidelines.
Apparently you can get an invite if you make a $20 donation though.

Thanks for the info. Assuming my Dognzb account is still active, I'll pay up for an account and go from there.

Now it's time to go set up Sickbeard and Couch Potato.

How about invites to omgwtfnzbs.org? Does anybody have one? I can join for 10 bucks but apparently it needs to be $10 worth of bitcoins. I have no idea how to do that and I'm not sure if it's worth it.

Once you get in via invite, you have the option of paying with Paypal.

PM me an email address and I'll shoot you an invite.

I'm not sure how much it is for the regular membership now, but it should be clear on the site once you get there.

Dognzb invite system is being reworked now. In a few weeks things will change and I would suggest waiting to see how things shake out.

I have a weird issue with Sabnzbd. There are two entries on the queue history screen that I can't get rid of. Both downloads failed and display an error message that says "Repair failed. Not enough repair blocks". They both have the rotating circle symbol that displays when the downloaded file is being built after the download. I can't purge those two entries from the history list. Everything else purges ok but these two entries remain. Everything still works but it's an annoyance.

Click on Status at the top and poke around in there. You should find the two items in there where you can remove them. Ive had that happen a few times myself.. seems like it started a couple of releases ago.
