    Depends on whether you get it working in the next few hours.

    I found the problem to my import issue. My path was wrong. I copied it from my NAS but it had an additional directory I didn't notice.

    I just wish it had a little better set of instructions/documentation. It's nice looking and slick, but some of the descriptions need help.

    How are things going?

    Dognzb Admin had added AM/PM to the dateformat in the RSS feed and it broke things.

    It was fixed a few hours ago.

    Can anyone recommend some indexing services? Preferably ones that don't require registration or are currently open. Unless you have invites to premium ones? :)
    My old indexers slowly died out. Still have Dog, but refused to pay under the new model, so it's ok for basic stuff.

    Hrm, I still had one at nzbs.in or nzb.su, I forget which, but they seem to have removed me. The only one I have now is Dog. :(

    Code:
    https://nzb.ag/register
    It's free and the Admin says it will remain that way.

    So far so good. I'll just have to keep an eye on it and search for missed shows from time to time. Don't know how many shows that finally showed up to download weeks later.

    It's a good idea to have more then one indexer installed in Sonarr, ect. If there is a problem with one indexer there would be a backup in place.

    I was just looking at adding nzb.ag to the mix but I couldn't get my sonarr to accept the api url for them.

    You have to use SSL.

    Thanks. That took care of it. And as of this minute, it's picking up my missing episodes from last night. Any idea what the cuttoff is? When does it quit looking for past episodes?

    Sonarr looks for the latest 100 newly indexed shows on each RSS sync to your indexers. If your missing shows fall outside of that range, nothing will be downloaded. Shows get re-posted often to usenet and these will fall within that 100 range and would be downloaded.

    If you search manually Sonarr will search your indexers fully for missing shows regardless of how old the posts are on your indexers.

    Select the "Wanted" menu button at the top of Sonarr and you can see all the missing episodes and choose to search for them manually.

    Ah. That makes more sense. I thought that it quit looking for older shows, say 3 weeks old. I can deal with it doing it the way it does.

    Thanks for all the help.

    Was it NZBS.in? Mine was also closed out of the blue. Anyone know why?

    I had accounts at both... one was closed on me a while ago and one was closed fairly recently, not sure which was which. Sounds like it might have been .in that was the recent one if yours was also closed.

    Im using NZBHydra and have Sonarr and CP pointed to that. That way it querys Hydra which queries all my indexers.

    I considered using Nzbhydra but the single point of failure stopped me.

    I recently moved and my usenet download speed has gone in the crapper. I used to get a constant 11 MB/s at my old home. Now it may start at 11 or 8 or 5 or 3 MB/s and then eventually slow to a crawl somewhere in the 50 - 500 KB/s range. Do I need to change some setting(s) in SABnzbd simple because I moved to a new town? I thought I'd ask here before changing things blindly.

    Not saying its going to help but many have found NZBGet to be faster downloading then SAB, me included. Maybe give it a shot?
