sabnzbd downloading random items from RSS feed

Post by rastoma »

I've had sabnzbd 0.5.6 running perfectly for months (and previous versions before that one as well).  I have a couple of RSS feeds setup with shows I want to catch and everything downloads as it's supposed to.

With no configuration change, no hardware change, NO changes at all.... starting about 1.5 weeks ago sabnzbd is downloading EVERYTHING from the RSS feed and is downloading items that I don't even SEE in the RSS feed.  An average of 2 items a day gets downloaded from my schedule.  Now it's downloading or trying to download 70-90 items a day.

I upgraded to 0.6.0 last night.  This morning, same thing... dozens and dozens of downloads in the queue.

I use feeds from nzbmatrix.  Running Win7.

How could this start doing this with nothing being changed on my PC?

Check your filters and do a preview.
You might want to upgrade to 0.6.0, it has a friendlier RSS UI.

I did upgrade to 0.6.0 and get the same issue.  I do not see a preview function on my filters.

As mentioned, all the filters have worked and then one day, starting almost 2 weeks ago, it's downloading just about everything in the RSS feeds.  I haven't touched a configuration or added/changed/deleted a filter in weeks.

This morning I deleted all filters for the RSS feed I have set up called movies.  After deleting all filters for movies, hours later, sabnzbd is downloading items from the movies RSS feed I have setup.

On the same page where you setup your filters, you'll also see the the result
of the filters on the last read content of the feed.

OK, I think I found out what was causing it.

One of my feeds had an Accept * under RSS (which I don't know how it got there). 

I removed it so hopefully that should take care of it.
