Im using Supernews and NewsNinja and really happy with the completion and retention.
I use supernews and astarweb, and never have any issues but it's not exactly the cheapest pair.
I just came across a block service called Usenet.Farm (appears to be Dutch).
Prices are low enough (500GB for €10.50 due to year end promo, normally €15) and retention/completion seem good enough that I took a chance (since Astraweb's completion has been kinda spotty lately).
They offer a 10GB trial so you can try them out first before needing to purchase.
Just Usenet - Usenet.Farm
They take Paypal but not a regular credit card so that's a bit of a hassle. But I have a Paypal account so I just used that to pay them the €10.50 ($11.27 USD is what Paypal charged on my card).
Ive been using Newsgroup Ninja and have been super happy with it. $7.99 a month, unlimited. Theyre a Highwinds reseller but Ive found completion to be very good and things to hang around for a while.
I have switched over to usenet.farm as well. They are one of the only, if not the only service that pulls from both Xsnews and Highwinds as well as their own server.
It looks like there is a fork of 'Sonarr' that is called 'Radarr'.
'Radarr' is going to be handling just movies instead of Tv shows. Looks like an alternative for Couchpotato.
It's still in early development but it looks promising.
GitHub - galli-leo/Radarr: Smart PVR for newsgroup and bittorrent users.

Another new couchpotato alternative is watcher. GitHub - nosmokingbandit/watcher
Why all the hate for CouchPotato?
Personally I think Couchpotato is just too bloated at this point, I want something more simple.
Also I've been annoyed that there is no easy way to backup and restore CouchPotato, I just didn't feel like setting it all up again because it can be a PITA getting it set up right.
Both Watcher and Radarr have a backup option that backs up everything you need to move your install somewhere else or restore after a rebuilt etc.
Anyone here using Sonarr and Dog? I'm having an issue where it's not finding new shows.
Are you using Windows or Linux? If Linux, check your version of mono. There is a known bug that interferes with some search sites. I use Dog and run it on my linux server with no problem.
Running Mac. Can you send me a link to the bug? I searched and everything I found was over 2 years old.
Here is a pretty long discussion on it (it gets fairly testy at points).
Latest development version
Dog's API server has been acting flaky lately. Searches can be hit or miss sometimes. Try again later. It's response times are pretty slow. I believe it's under alot of stress from all the users that Dog has. Users have complained in their forum.
I believe the Admin wrote his own API server a couple of years ago because the default API server wasn't cutting it. Looks like it may be an issue again.
I just cleared the logs and ran a search. First thing that pops out to me is that the NewznabRssParser says invalid API key: Insufficient privileges. Then the next line shows an invalid API key, even though I've put one in the indexer screen.
Searching for another show, shows the same results.
Once I add my API from that same settings screen, I get results. Any thoughts?
Well, apparently, somehow, I managed to get my account downgraded for 24hrs over this api stuff. I don't know how as I was just cutting and pasting the urls. Guess I'll wait until tomorrow and see how this turns out.
EDIT: Yeah make sure you use the correct API key or you will get a temporary ban. Empty search results are an issue though.
Like I mentioned earlier, Dog's API server has been flaky lately.
It's likely a Dog issue and not yours. Post about your issue on Dog's forum. Other users have complained about the same issues.
While I wait for the limited access to clear, I went ahead and manually searched for my missing shows. I am getting "
Import failed, path does not exist or is not accessible by Sonarr: /data/Videos/Shows/Downloads/Gotham.S03E01.Mad.City.Better.To.Reign.In.Hell.720p.AMZN.WEBRip.DD5.1.x264-NTB".
When I look in the show directory, the file is there. The downloads folder is where I download everything to for it to be sorted out. There is one of those lines for every show I get now.
Probably a permissions issue on your download folder, update the permissions.
Didn't make any difference. The errors go away once I remove it from sab but I don't want to have to remember to do that every time. And I have it set up to remove from the download client once completed.
Is it me or is this thing just not ready for prime time?
