hi neo_x, monster post there! :-) , i will try and cover all your questions, if i miss anything let me know, ok here goes:-movies downloaded and movies to replace matching
ok this is a VERY recently introduced feature (2.1.8 beta1) to allow a fairly flexible search match, the best way to explain what it will match on is to give some examples. moviegrabber will match on file/folder names if file/folder name matches the imdb name, you can use hyphens, dots, underscores or spaces between the title names e.g. these are all valid:-
and with append year option switched on:-
The Matrix (1999)
for file name matching it will ignore the extension, one other thing to note is that moviegrabber does do recursive matches so it will drill down sub folders and look for matching files or folders so you only need to specify the root folder not all the sub folders, it also will allow you to specify root folders on different drives too, so you could set "configuration/folders" to the following:-
i think this answers your questions in the top half of your email :-)
on the queue TAb - can you automatically open the "view queue" screen when clicking on the TAB?
this could be done, but the reason its not setup like this is because you may want to purge the queue/history without having to wait for the page to load, which can be annoying when connected over a slow link, you can always bookmark the queue/view page as a workaround :-).
with the list of queue'd movies - can you add a button to remove/delete the movie from the list
this could be done, i did previously have the ability to individually remove items queued via a checkbox, so i could re-introduce this, reason i removed it is to simplify the webui but i do see your point that it would be nice to remove any other matching movies once released from queue, what about instead when you release the movie then it removes any other queued items with the same name?.
what happens if more than 50 movies/nzb's(yikes!) have been added since the last check??
ok this is a potential problem but unlikely, for this to be an issue there would have to be 50 posts in less than the specified time in the schedule for moviegrabber (configuration/schedule), the default being 1 hour, so for now i wouldnt loose any sleep over it :-).
other question - please confirm that once a movie has been added/downloaded to sab - that it will not be added from the RSS stream again
moviegrabber has several checks to prevent duplicate downloads, things it checks for:-
nzb doesnt exist in nzb folder (used by sabnzbd+)
nzb doesnt exist in watched folder (used by sabnzbd+)
movie doesnt exist in movies downloaded (if enabled)
movies doesnt exist in the completed folder (used by sabnzbd+)
post name doesnt exist in history table for moviegrabber
so in theory it is possible to cause a duplicate download if you deleted the nzb from the nzb folder, didnt specify the movies downloaded folder, deleted the movie from the completed folder, the post name was different, and you had automatically download (not queue) specified then it is possible that moviegrabber would duplicate.
im glad your enjoying moviegrabber, thanks for your kind comments :-)
