Triple download.

Postby ces1948news » Tue Sep 24, 2019 11:39 am

Version 6.81.
I d/l a mkv file which was around 700 mb. The title was obfuscated. I noticed it seemed to be taking a long time. I used an nzb from another source to launch the d/l
I have 4 servers set up.
When I looked at the results of the d/l I found 1 failed file, 1 completed file with the correct filename and 2 completed files with the obfuscated name (1 with 001 appended.
What could have caused this?

It's hard to know. In your shoes I'd:

1 - Run the latest beta

2 - Feed all NZB's directly to the download list. Either through auto-load or by setting the option in the NZB options to funnel all NZB's directly to the download list.

Typically obscured files these days don't group anymore so, feeding to the download list force-groups them. Grouped downloads are the most reliable downloads.

The latest beta has the best support for newly obscured NZB's. It's really ready for release. I just need to do it. Maybe this week.

Installed the beta and re d/l the same file as before. Got a single copy of the correctly named file. Looks like the correct settings are already in the nzb options page. Please advise if I need to change anything there.
Thanks.

As long as the NZB's go to the download list and don't open up a new window to display them, you're good.
