sabnzbd downloads some files even when paused

Post by tiwas » April 26th, 2019, 3:44 pm

I like to leave sabnzbd in a paused state so I can review nzbs before downloading them. For some odd reason, though, it seems nzb files sent from sickchill are downloaded even though sabnzbd is paused. Can someone explain to me why? Is there a better way to do this?

Thanks!

Have you configured your 'tv' category in SABnzbd to use priority 'paused'?

Tried that. Still downloads. Usually, I've pressed the pause icon on the main page but figured I'd try the priority paused setting.

It will download files that have priority Forced, which you can identify based on the >> icon in front of it.
Maybe the sickchill program adds them with this priority? Maybe you have a pre-queue scripts setup?

Thanks. I'll try and see if it's added with the forced priority. I don't have pre-queue scripts set up, so it cannot be that.
