This XBMC plugin will allow you to control Sickbeard from within XBMC. It allows you to view your show list, add new shows, set the status of season/episodes, view upcoming episodes and view recent download history.
- To add a show navigate to "Manage Shows" then bring up the context menu and select "Add Show"
- To change the status of a show navigate to "Manage Shows" then choose a show and season, then bring up the context menu and select "Set Episode Status" or "Set Season Status".
It has been tested on XBMC Eden (11.0) RC 1 and 2 on Windows and ATV2.

In Sickbeard: Under the General settings page in the Sickbeard web interface make sure you have the API enabled and an API key has been generated. This plugin uses the Sickbeard API to do all the communication with Sickbeard.
Note: You need a version of sickbeard from after 7 december 2011 (for me 491 or higher) because the API, on which this addon depends, was added at that time.
- Go to General in Setting
- Enable the API
- Generate an API key and have settings
Be sure to clear the cache of your browser if you are unable to generate an API key.
In Sickbeard XBMC plugin: After you install this plugin, go to the plugin settings. You must enter the IP and port of your Sickbeard installation. If Sickbeard requires a username and password you must also enter those in the settings.
