Problem submitted to CouchPotato - hopefully the workaround of renaming will help out some other users!

Missing Growl icon. :(

Sickbeard developers figured it out some how.

That is, when using Growl for windows, CoucPotato has no custom icon.

Image

Please add one. Thanks.

Update:

See: http://growl.info/documentation/develop ... -growl.php

Code: Select all

iconData

An NSData object which is a representation of an NSImage to be shown with this notification. If it is nil, the default icon for your application will be used. If you want the notification to have no icon, supply an empty NSData ([NSData data]). Optional.

Hi,

I have loads of movies snatched that I renamed manually therefore are still listed as snatched. Is there a way to clear them all?

Tks

Hi there! I have Sabnzbd, Sickbeard and Couchpotato set up, and all three are working as intended. I have a specific couch potato question though. How can I prevent couch potato from downloading movies that are split? For example: I add Robocop to couch potato. Everything goes as planned. When I get ready to watch the movie, I notice I have cd1 and cd2. Is there something I can do to prevent couch potato from downloading split movies? I prefer 1 file, and will never actually be burning any of these to a physical media, so it's senseless to have these in such a format. Thanks in advance for any/all advice, and keep up the good work!!

Hey Everyone,

Hopefully everyone knows that CouchPotato V1 is no longer being supported by RuudBurger (creator). He is only supporting the new v2 aka "Couchpotato Server" which is still in beta testing. So that leaves the rest of us to help with supporting V1.

You can find some support here: http://couchpota.to/forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=9

And if your interested in installing V2 (CouchPotato Server) try the FAQ's here : http://couchpota.to/forum/forumdisplay.php?fid=6

So why am I telling you this now. I did come across a problem with the renaming feature in V1 causing IMDbDataAccessError .
which would stop CouchPotato from renaming my downloads and moving them to the correct completed folder. But as we can see from here : http://couchpota.to/forum/showthread.php?tid=216 .

jt72 has already found a solution. Simple fix open file up and find and replace with new line. remember to rename the complied version( .pyc ) of the file so python will create another with the code change.

I could also post the file here with the changes if anyone needs it. So all you would have to do is shutdown couchpotato v1, copy the file over and rename the .pyc file and restart.

Just Helping out
J03

It would be really nice if someone would update fafoulon's Safari extension, I took a look at the code but I'm not sure how to implement the new API.

I just downloaded a Bluray-rip, but CP messed it up by renaming the stream-files within the BDMV-folder to the movie-title. Renaming of mkv-, avi-, etc. files is nice, but not for those folders. Actually it should only rename and move the folder, not the files in it.
Has there been any solution for this?

I have both CouchPotato and SickBeard running on my unRaid server. It works great for the most part, aside from one little issue that I can live with, but would rather not have to.

From time to time, I will notice a TV Show appear in my movie folders, but it's under a different name.

For example, I have both Breaking Bad and The Walking Dead as shows in SickBeard.

I will see the following folders and files show up in my movies:

Breaking Bad TV Series 2008 - IMDb () - This will end up being a random show
100 Years of Horror: The Walking Dead - The last one I checked was the first episode from season 1.

Any ideas what might be going on?
I'm seeing this happen every now and then as well. I was using a version from last year, so maybe the newer versions have resolved it. It got pretty annoying though and I ended up disabling CP.

Has anyone else seen this and know the cause?

Thanks.

Backing up CP config files?

Post by tymanthius »

I'm looking at completely changing my current linux server installation, and was wondering what I would need to back up in order to have a mostly effortless reinstall of CP once the server is back online?

I'm currently using Zentyal (based on Ubuntu 10.04), and will be moving to a more pure Ubuntu 12 most likely.

When you queue is empty, you just need to backup the content of ~/.sabnzbd/admin

I cant connect to CP from another PC on LAN.
Sabnzbd and sickbeard worked just fine.

Does anyone know what could have gone wrong?

Hi, I can't found movies in foreign language, most of the time the NZB is in English...
In fact when I type my movie in other language it recognizes the movie, but it gives me the English title...
Is there a solution ? (choosing prefered words didn't work)...
Thx!
