First, thank you for taking the time to reply.
Second, I apologize for not doing a better job communicating. I was using ther term "search" or "search results" to indicate the output of the RSS feed. And yes, I do understand that you consume standardized RSS rather than dealing with the complexities of a changing markup.
I will try to be more specific in my explanation. First, imagine the search criteria I mentioned above. Now I attempt to duplicate that search on NZBs.org (I also tested NZBmatrix, but I'll start with NZB's for simplicity).
Here is the RSS request I would concatenate, expecting it to match the "view history" under MovieGrabber:http://www.nzbs.org/rss.php?type=2&q=xvid&i=
<API key removed for privacy>
I first clear the history on MG. Then I submit the request on MG and pull down the RSS on NZBs.org at the same time. Then I was 5+ minutes and check the history on MG. Somehow MG has movies that are not included in NZBs.org, and NZBs.org has movies that are not included on MG.
Now, if it were a matter of those items being excluded for IMDB reasons, etc -- I'd understand. However, this is the logging area of the tool I'm using, not the final list of what's been imported.
Is there any way to get the RSS URI's tha you're building, logged? This way I could better understand if they are working correctly.
Here's one example of where this feature would come in handy for other users .. you have a tooltip that advises people to use "+" or "-" in front of search terms. You example is "+720 -hdtv". The problem is that unless a user is familiar or can test the RSS you create, they may not realize that (a) this syntax does not work on all of the NZB index sites (for example, off the top of my head, "+" in NZBmatrix will eliminate searching the term as a wildcard, and "-" is not supported).
Does this make better sense? I guess in short, my question is a two parter: (1) can you help me determine why my results don't appear to be matching, and/or (2) is it possible to get the RSS request logged, so that I could determine the cause without troubling you :-).
Thank you in advance!
