Any word on if we're getting a time zone fix yet? We don't need anything complicated, just a cosmetic change in the coming episodes section where it displays the time as whatever you set in config would be helpful? Thanks for all the great work!

I noticed one change in the latest release: just aired movies used to be sent as "priority-high" to SAB, while backlog as "priority-nornal". This is not happening anymore since the latest update. Any chance to get this back?

it's because the backlog was redone, now it's per show/season vs global. read this:

Hello Guys,

The first page of this thread warns about this app not for the newbies. I am a newbie on xbmc and not a programmer... but I understand what this app is for and is very interested to get this working for my full HTPC experience too. 205 pages later, is there now an easy procedure for the newbies so we can also enjoy this app?

Thanks!

JoeMF...what platform are you running?

Ok, since I updated to 473 sickbeard got completely useless to me. When I download files and let sickbeard move them to my new folders it doesnt chmod them to 0777 so I can't see any new added files in my folder and xbmc doesnt update anything.

Sabnzbd is configured correctly with the 0777 added in the ini file (just checked), so that cant be it. Anybody any ideas? Im probably going back to 472 to see if that fixes the problem.

I also have this problem with couchpotato btw, but didnt have it with sickbeard until now. I dont want sabnzbd to do all the renaming and moving of the files.

thezoggy Wrote:go to your tv show folder, folder.jpg or cover.jpg is what sickbeard currently uses for the coming ep page. if the images' width > height.. you should use banner layout.. if height > width then use poster layout. if your image is a square.. well your SOL. I have xbmc confluence d/l my metadata.. which are banners.. so i use the banner layout. using the poster layout means my images get squished. there is a list view being added next week which doesnt use the metadata.. you might be best off using that one.

I actually don't have any pics under the tv show folder. The only metadata I have is downloaded by xbmc and kept in separate folders.

Sickbeard must be getting these images on the fly from thetvdb and it is getting the fanart images, which don't fit either the poster or the banner aspect ratio.

Ok, the post processing isnt working for me on my windows 7 machine. In sabnzbd it says the following after using the sabtosickbeard.exe as script:

Code:
Renaming file F:\downloads\TV\Survivor S18E07 720p HDTV x264 ORENJi\survivor.s18e07.720p.hdtv.x264-orenji.mkv to F:\downloads\TV\Survivor S18E07 720p HDTV x264 ORENJi\Survivor - S18E07 - One of Those 'Coach Moments'.mkv

After renaming the new file path is F:\downloads\TV\Survivor S18E07 720p HDTV x264 ORENJi\Survivor - S18E07 - One of Those 'Coach Moments'.mkv

Destination folder for this episode: F:\Series\Survivor\Season 18

Moving file from F:\downloads\TV\Survivor S18E07 720p HDTV x264 ORENJi\Survivor - S18E07 - One of Those 'Coach Moments'.mkv to F:\Series\Survivor\Season 18\Survivor - S18E07 - One of Those 'Coach Moments'.mkv

Processing succeeded for F:\downloads\TV\Survivor S18E07 720p HDTV x264 ORENJi\survivor.s18e07.720p.hdtv.x264-orenji.mkv

Deleting folder F:\downloads\TV\Survivor S18E07 720p HDTV x264 ORENJi

After that I cant see the file whenever I try to approach it via smb://sharename/series, doesnt matter if thats on my macbook or on xbmc. The file is not visible. If I let sabnzbd do the renaming and moving it is no problem, but I'd prefer to let sickbeard handle all the files. It's like there is something wrong with the rights of the file but its windows so I cant chmod it to 0777.

At first I had this problem with sabnzbd as well, but after changing the permissions in the ini file to 0777 it worked. Since the new 473 update I have the problem with sickbeard. I tried everything (logging on as a different user or admin, changing the rights, resharing) but nothing works. Can somebody point me in the right direction please?

that's a weird issue. I've just finished setting up a couple new computers with sab and sickbeard and did not experience any permissions issues. Maybe there is something else going on outside of sickbeard/sab that is affecting your setup.

Euh, i must really be a noob Wink. Cache clearing doesn't work.
It shows SickBeard in very basic looks. Just hyperlinks in blue and the rest is all black and white (and not fitted properly).

I still really like the program (since it simply rocks), but i hope you'll be able to pinpoint the problem so i can fix it Wink

Mine looks like that after I update, a simple refresh of the page fixes it.

As Midgetspy said, just clear your cache properly, it should work. Try it in another browser, and see what it looks like.

probably, I cant find anybody else with this problem. But I'm running out of options here. I have no idea what to do to fix this problem except let sabnzbd do the file handling. Its even more weird considering that it worked flawless until I updated to 473. But a downgrade doesnt help.

it's pulled on the fly from your metadata, folder/cover.jpg. eventually there is a plan to just pull these down from thetvdb/fanart/your own source and cache them just for sickbeard to use. but this is way down the road as that means having to add an image library to sickbeard to handle the image stuff...
