Keep getting the same errors while trying to search for any show/episode. Just updated to the latest version and still having an issue. Tried disabling BTN torrent search with no luck either.

Have you verified your API key?

Any chance of a hand please? I added a new show and the episodes are going into my \TVShows\ directory rather than \TVShows\TV Show Name\ any idea why please?

I use Sickbeard's Scan and Process rather than SabtoSickbeard on linux. Thanks in advance!

When you create a show you must click the button for Season Folders. I had the same issue when I started using SB.

As it stands, having shows get automatically deleted is rather pointless as they'd be immediately downloaded again. Having to log into Sickbeard to manually toggle off specific episodes would really be a pain in the ass - if I was going to do that, I'd just manually delete the files while I was at it.

It's complicated, too, because I absolutely need it to be show specific. I'd say most of the shows I watch I want to keep, it's just a couple news/current events sorts of shows I don't want to keep, and those quasi reality tv contest shows the wife watches (once you know who wins, there's not any point in rewatching the series).

I've no idea how one would put this together though Sad

You can use "Belvedere" to delete your programs for you based on age and it can be pointed to certain directories. Criteria can be based on the suffix of a file (i.e. *.mkv, *.avi) etc. It can be run in the background or be made to start, complete tasks and close.

can anyone help me please?

All of my new TV shows are having the folder created correctly by SB e.g. \TV Shows\TVShowName and with the season folders option checked, they're being downloaded to \TV Shows\TVEpisode.avi what am I doing wrong?

Something must have changed during the last update. The following file is no longer identified in SB. It used to work and even NFO file got created, but no longer shows up. The file name is:

WB - S2004E01 - 04-11-02 - Daffy Duck For President - LT - Brandt, Cervone - Bugs Bunny, Daffy Duck - SVCD - DVD.mpg

Any thoughts?

Remember that Sickbeard pulls its data from thetvdb.com, my guess is something over there changed.

Unfortunately, that's not the reason. Whenever something changes with thetvdb.com, SB will show me an error in the log (cannot find episode or so). Also, I have checked and S2004E01 does still exist with thetvdb.

This must be SB-related.

Getting the error message below. It used to work, I haven't changed anything, I double-checked the API. Any thoughts?

Anyone having issues last two days in adding new shows to sickbeard ? TVDB.COM seems to be timing out and not adding the shows.

Getting the issue here too. Seems that it's a known issue with the tvdb changing datacenters and dns not getting updated. Have a look here - http://forums.thetvdb.com/viewtopic.php?f=3&t=10858
