XBMC - The Dharma Guide - HenryFord - 2011-04-21 11:21
I want to present my dharma-guide to you - this is a full-featured guide on how to setup your XBMC properly, including your sources, libraries and customizations. I tried to keep it as viewable as possible hence I did not include everything around the XBMC - not by a long shot.
What is present in this guide?
1. XBMC - Complete guide to the setup (sources, libraries, customizations, etc.)
-> Including a full guide to the "Advanced Launcher"-Add-On
2. Sabnzbd - Complete guide to sabnzbd
3. Couch Potato - Complete guide to the Couch Potato program
4. Sickbeard - Complete guide to the Sickbeard program
In a nutshell:
I'll explain how to setup a PVR without actually owning one or using live-tv. Sickbeard and Couch Potato will give you the possibility to fully automatize your Home Entertainment Solution.
Give it a go - critic is always welcome, just post what is bugging you.

---- Updated the license model in order to allow commercial usage
---- Restructured the layout of the Media-Manager-Section
---- Added a few media-manager

I finally came around to change my webhoster, downloads should be faster and more stable now.

Great post. Took a quick look and looks really good. Should give most people an easy start for setting up XBMC + Sickbeard + Couchpotato.
Good job! Should probably be a sticky

Should be fixed now. Thanks for the heads up.

Just a litte heads up:
I just updated my webhost and changed to a more reliable one, you should experience less problems from now on.
Also I rewrote the webpage in order to get rid of all this MS-Generated-Crap, it should work much better now (and you should be able to see all pictures )

Thanks very much for taking the time to put this together, it'll be a great help in getting my setup working the way I want it to!

Thanks Henry. I must say this guide helped me out when sorting my library for XBMC. But I must ask, is usenet really worth it compared to torrenting? I mean considering you have to pay (I think?) for usenet.

Depends, I like the usenet, it's easy and simple. For me the advantage comes with the reliability, nearly everything is available at fullspeed and you do not have to rely on seed/leech ratios. Of course - PrivateTracker do help in this case, but it is difficult to keep his own S/L-ratio good.
But both programs, sickbeard and couch potato, can make use of torrents as well. I will write an addition for the guide on how to setup your torrent-prog properly in order to use torrents efficient.
So, you can choose between both methods: Paid and Free, it really is your choice
In the guide however there are already instructions on how to setup the torrent-usage for cp and sb, but a bittorrent-client instruction is not yet included.

It seems that your website is down at the moment. Could you please let me know when it is up again? I would love to look at your Dharma guide. Thanks.
