Problem getting categories passed to Sabnzbd

Post by badbonez »

When I download nzb files from NZBgeek, Sabnzbd is unable to capture the category (i.e., Movies > HD, etc.). The Nzb file syntax seems fine:

Code: Select all

 <meta type="category">Movies > HD</meta>
And in Sabnzbd, under categories>Group/Indexer tags I have

Code: Select all

movies*, Movies*, Movies>HD, Movies*HD
These index tags work for other nzb sites. Any ideas why it doesn't work with Nzbgeek?

FWIW, this is how I do it, with a space:

Code: Select all

movies > hd
NZBGeek is known for having little custom issues that need to be accounted for though, so it might just be them.
