Sorry, wasn't very clear in my original post - I haven't deleted and re-added the show (hadn't spotted that the OP mentioned this) and I do have the quality tags in the names anyway. Plus everything's working as expected with everything that isn't Dexter...

sb will d/l an sdtv version unless an sddvd version is there at that search.. if not then it will then at a later date replace the 'lower' quality sdtv with sddvd.

how does sb really know that the file is sdtv? well it uses the nzb/rss search results and if the file was scanned/obtain manually it scans the filename and figures out the quality.. if it can't it assumes a unknown quality.

now about my 'assumption'. if you had a file in sb and it in fact know what quality it was.. but then you blew away that information and sb couldnt parse the filename to figure out the quality it assumes it's unknown (which is the lowest quality) and with your custom quality (archive) it will just fetch to complete it's backlog queue job on fulfilling the requested archive quality.

but anyways you can just go consult the logs as they are pretty verbose and should tell you why it did what it did.

How did I blow away that information? I'm not sure you really understand what's going on.

SB never searches for anything. It stops searching. It's doing it again. Here's a cut and paste of the log from just now.

Sep-27 07:31:21 INFO CP Server Thread-10 :: Seeing if we need any episodes from Castle (2009) season 4

I know for a fact that the web-dl of Castle 4x02 has been available for over 2 hrs. My search is set for every hour. It is the only quality I want, so it hasn't DL anything yet. If I force a search or force a backlog, this is all the logs show, seeing if we need any episodes. It never actually searches or finds anything. Now, I'll reboot my machines and report back with my findings.

And, you can plainly see, before I forced those searches, SB hadn't done anything for over 3 hours.

Found the only quality of Castle I have set (web-dl), a better quality of Terra Nova (which it DL the HD version last night) and a recent episode of Shake it Up (one of the many qualities I have set). All of those became available within the last 2-12 hours.


- clubwerks - 2011-09-27 16:47

I don't really need anybody to explain how SB works to me. I've used it for over a year to DL probably 15TB of my favorite shows, both old and new. I've got a real good grasp of how it works. This is a very recent thing. Somehow it seems to be falling asleep and the only way to fix it is to completely reboot my computer.

I'm getting a new hard drive delivered this afternoon. Anyone got a suggestion on how to configure sickbeard to start putting new shows there? I'd prefer to not have to move existing show files, but I don't see a way to have multiple directories per show. Any advice would be appreciated!

I don't think you can do that. You can make SB start putting new shows on the new hard drive, but I don't think a show can span two drives. Although, in all honestly, it really doesn't need to. As long as SB can put the new shows somewhere, just edit it's location to the new hard drive and set the old episodes to skipped.

Yeah, that's kind of what I had concluded. It's just slightly annoying to have so many different locations for the same show (this will be the third drive). If it didn't involve wiping everything, I'd switch to some type of NAS/raid system.

Thanks!

It doesn't have to. I'm sure you'd know someone with a couple of externals you could backup your stuff onto whilst you set up your NAS. You will never regret doing this. Wink I'm loving my Synology DS1010+ and have extended it with the DX510.. It's just too sweet running SABnzbd and SickBeard on that.

That's what 3TB drives were made for. I have 4 in one machine and 3 more in another. Big Grin


- dagatech - 2011-09-27 19:48

Oh I know, this is a 2tb drive and my others are both 1tb. I might decide to spend this weekend moving everything around so it makes more sense, consolidate files and such. The external is a good idea, I'll have to look into that.

It really weird, the software works great, but "Pawn Stars" wont download anymore

Every other show adds fine, but it never finds this show. Also XBMC never adds just this show properly to the library


Moving Files/Folders after post processing - Desisuperman - 2011-09-27 22:38

Ok, i'm sure this has been answered here before but i'm honestly not going to comb through 300+ pages in this thread. What im trying to acheive is simple.

Objective:

1. Move my tv show to the correct folder after it's done processing.

2. Specifying the source of HD content or giving priority to one source over another. I prefer to to download WEB DL over other sources, how can I prioritize this or download just the one type.


Backround:

Using Sick Beard, sabnzbd+ & NZBMatrix.

My "Temporary Download Folder" & "Completed Download Folder in sabnzbd+ is set to C:\Users\myusername\downloads

I would like to have the folder moved to C:\Users\myusername\Videos\Tv Shows\Boardwalk Empire

I have read this information found here but I can't make any sense of it http://code.google.com/p/sickbeard/wiki/PostProcessing

So if somebody can dumb this down for me and explain what exactly it is I need to do it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks Smile

Also found this issue, looks thetvdb is not seeing it anymore.

You're making it kind of hard. You really need to do only three things. Pick a final folder for your TV Show(s). You do this in Sickbeard when you add the show. In your example, you want it in a folder called ...\tv shows\boardwalk empire\ which is fine.

In your sickbeard settings, you also need to tell it what category to place the snatched nzb's in when it downloads them so it knows how to process them. Normally this is "TV".

In sab, you need to set up several folders. One for downloads and one to move it to when it's complete. Using my own folders as an example, I have:

d:\downloads\incomplete (Temp Download Folder)

d:\downloads\complete (Completed Download Folder)

And then you turn on sabtosickbeard.exe as your default postprocessing for "TV" or whatever category sickbeard uses to send the files to Sabnzbd+.

The only other thing you need to do is to take the ext "sample" off this file autoProcessTV.cfg.sample in your sickbeard directory. I believe it's in the autoprocess folder. That's really it, as long as you've configured sabnzbd and sickbeard so that they're communicating with each other.

Here's the flow:

1. Sickbeard finds a new (or old) TV show episode you're looking for.

2. It snatches it and sends it to sabnzbd assigning it the category "TV"

3. Sab downloads it to the Temp folder.

4. Sab verifies, repairs and unpacks it to the Completed folder.

5. Sab run the script sabtosickbeard.exe which allows Sickbeard to take control of the file, rename it, download any nfo files, artwork, etc.

6. Sickbeard processes it and moves it to it's final resting spot which is the folder you declared when you added the TV Show to Sickbeard initially.

7. Optionally, Sickbeard can notify all your instances of XBMC that the file has downloaded and run an update library to all of them as well.


- clubwerks - 2011-09-27 23:15

As for your second question, when you add a show, just select CUSTOM quality and then select 720p WEB-DL as the initial download quality. If you've already added the show, go to edit, CUSTOM quality and do the same and submit.
