[quote="binhex"]hi seagullcanfly, wow monster post :-), ok replies as follows:-
I'm having trouble with the already downloaded section. Movie Grabber doesn't seem to check my external hard drive to see if the title exists already, or I don't have something set up properly. I know I didn't have the nzb section set up correctly, but that hasn't resolved the issue. Still have movie grabber downloading real steel everytime it pops up, and then sabnzbd downloads it and appends a .1 for the copy (e.g. Real Steel (2011).1.mkv). Under movies it is checked yes for checking for already downloaded movies. The folder is just an external drive I:\Movies . Not sure what to do, any suggestions?
the overlap your seeing with CP and moviegrabber is a strange one, moviegrabber does have further checks against your specified "nzb folder" Thanks for that. I had glossed over the nzb folder requirement, not really understanding it. I never saved the nzb files before, so now I've set up a folder which hopefully will prevent double, simultaneous downloads in the future.
personally quality preference isnt something i really need as i only want either bluray or dvdrips, not a mix but i understand some people are fine with this.
I'm not sure if your program is able to do it, but what situation I'm referring to would be something like wanting a copy of Equilibrium, saying I prefer HD, but if only a Divx version is available then download that, hopefully with the ability to retain that movie in a wishlist until the HD version is released.
not sure what is meant by interactive input fields in CP and can you give me an example of a userscript that you find useful as im interested to see what sort of thing you think is missing in moviegrabber, maybe i can accomodate it.
By interactive input fields I might be leaning more towards an eye candy factor than something useful, but when I input a movie to watch for in couchpotato it seems to use something like IMDB's api to find the actual title. Say if I entered in The Matrix in MovieGrabber, I could just write that in there, but if I really wanted the Matrix Revolutions, a dropdownlist appears in CouchPotato with versions of the Matrix it has found in a search. That way I can make sure I've selected the correct version.
There is a userscript with CP that for me is just a google chrome extension which gives me easy access to adding movies when browsing a site like IMDB or RottenTomatoes. It's just a little button that pops up in the bottom right hand corner that lets me add the movie. CP also has a trakt.tv watchlist integration which allows me to put movies in my trakt watchlist and it automatically adds them to my CP movies wanted list. Essentially I think the appeal of MovieGrabber is different for me because I don't have to keep abreast of all possible good movies that are being released. But the other focus of having a place to record the names of movies I am interested in is important too, as I sometimes watch crappy movies just because I was into the trailer or somebody recommended it.
looks like imdb do have this information, i will need to check the json feed to see if this information is available, if so i can include this
That's awesome, thanks. I hope others would find that useful too. I could see myself using that for writers like Christopher Nolan, also.
Thanks on this too. Noticed afterwards that others had already requested that.
Any chance input fields like favorite titles, directors, or actors could be more interactive like CouchPotato?
a nice idea, probably a fair chunk of code to implement so i would need to have a good think about this.
Wish I could help. I'm on exercise 35 of Learn Python the Hard Way so I'm basically in awe of anyone that can do more than make a choose your own adventure text game.
Ooooh, TV grabber!
