I've got another couple questions for you guys. I was demo'ing the system to my friends the other day, and unfortunately, SABnzbd wasn't able to download any episodes that I was feeding it through Sickbeard.
Something about an error retrieving the nzb file from my nzb provider (NZBMatrix.) I checked my NZB Matrix credentials in SABnzbd and it looked fine to me. I did a quick Google search and found that this is actually somewhat normal for NZB providers that it just craps out every once in awhile. Is that true? Kind of a bummer if that's the case.. sucks having to manually feed SABNzbd the nzb file just to start the episode download.
I know this isn't a ton of info about the error message I got, but if this sounds familiar and you have any information about it, I'd love to have some light shed on it.
The other issue I saw was that it was downloading my TV shows to a different folder on my external than the other night when it was working correctly. This tripped up my XBMC and I had to manually 'Add Files' and point it to the episode I just downloaded instead of it just automatically adding it in.
I guess I'm a little confused by 'Download Locations' for my usenet files. My confusion comes from these points:
1. I'm confused that both SickBeard and SABnzbd seem to ask for where these TV shows will download and I'm not sure if I'm supposed to leave SickBeard blank and let SABnzbd handle it, or they both have to be the same?
2. I've followed a couple of SABNZbd + SickBeard setup guides and most of them say to have a 'Complete' and 'Incomplete' folder. However, other guides have separate 'TV Shows' folder that they manually created as well. I think what would help is if someone could just tell me what their folder tree looks like where their TV shows download. Mine is something like this:
D: TV Shows
(all 3 folders are in the root of my external. As you can tell, I have no idea what the hell I'm doing
I'm away from my HTPC (at work) right now, so I'm kind of guessing at all this and trying to recall all the details of the problem. However, just any general information on best practices for setting up folders and any information about what that 'error retrieving NZB file' was about would be super helpful.
