is sickbeard and SAB still running if you close the web gui? Dont see them running in msconfig. Is it possible to have them work without having them open in a browser? (windows 7)

Also what is up with two version updates in one day? Should I upgrade to 480?

yes both sab and sickbeard run in the background. think of it like a web server. if you want proof just launch your task manager and look for the proper .exe name in your list of processes.

I clearly have enough space on the device. It is annoying not to have the proper banner images and fanart for the WebUI...

post logs on google code page, midget will look into it. where you have sickbeard installed, does it have some sort of ntfs quota management there? launch a command prompt and navigate there and create a file or copy a file there... does that work?

Why would my system stop 'downloading' ? It is snatching just fine

snatched = got the nzb file.
downloaded = sab d/led the nzb contents and then extracted and told sb to post process.

This last week I've missed a ton of shows. The NZB is being downloaded but it's 'invalid'.

They are all empty save for one line:
Invalid link: #3.

So maybe before data gets saved it could get validated? I'm sure NZB has some sort of known structure. (like XML/torrents)

easy fix.. don't use nzbmatrix as your first provider until they fix their stuff. there are many better providers out there (free even). try nzb.su.

DrStrange Wrote:Ah , sorry thezoggy. I didn't mean to paste that part in, that's where I did a force update later on the missed episode on the coming episodes page in Sick Beard to snatch the file. It's when I booted up the system from time index 18:43:01 onwards that Sick Beard doesn't seem to find the file.

go to config > episode downloads, what is your search freq?

011-02-14 18:32:09.884000 POSTPROCESSER :: Automatic post-processing attempted but dir doesn't exist

What does this mean ?

that you have the post processing folder set to one that doesn't exist. from the lack of info provided I can only assume you are doing nzb blackhole method and have the tv download dir set to something invalid.

It's set at 60 minutes. Shouldn't Sick Beard snatch the nzb when it starts up/when the system is booted if the nzb is available?

depends on when last search was run. also search providers have limits in place for api on how many request and how freq. they can be made. honestly I'd suggest using multiple providers or changing your search freq to like 30mins or both.

if you are doing a watch folder w/scan and process. then yes.

I think I have found a minor error.

When I add several hosts in xbmc notifications (separated by comma), I just get a test message for the first host. If I go to home and push "update xbmc" it updates all hosts but it says "unable to contact xbmc host".

So functionality seem to work, but not test message and it gives an error when sending xbmc notification.

Alright cool... can I get sickbeard and sab to start automatically at startup?

zillions of ways to do this, probably the easiest is just to create a shortcut to the .exe files you want to run in the startup folder on your start menu.

once we get some of these new changes pushed out i'll take a look at it. lots of new goodies very soon Smile

I was downloading some movies and tv shows and most of the time they download and sickbeard (or couch potato) rename them and place them in the right folder but now I keep getting folders that say "UNPACKED tv show name." I can't figure out how to fix this. If it says unpacked I have to change the folder name and manual post process it

Im trying to setup the Post-Processing part.

The instructions below mention how to edit that "Autoprocesstv.cfg" file which I did successfully and then it totally loses me on setting the appropriate script as your post processing script inside Sabnzbd+


I went over ever setting in Sab and don't see anything regarding a Post Procssing Script.

Thanks!


Change the host, port, username, and password values to the appropriate settings for your Sick Beard server. Then set the appropriate script as your postprocessing script inside SABnzbd+/HellaNZB:

sabToSickbeard.py - linux/OSX SABnzbd+

sabToSickbeard.exe - Windows SABnzbd+

hellaToSickbeard.py - HellaNZB
