NZBXXX Categories

Post by pagnutti » October 16th, 2012, 7:28 pm

I've recently update sabnzbd to 0.7.4 from 0.6.15 and I notice what I'm going to call a weird behaviour in regards to nzbxxx and categories.

I've notice today that when I use sabconnect++ to download anything from nzbxxx of the type "XXX: Divx/Xvid" or "XXX: DVD" sabnzbd picks it up as my "movie" category.

In sabnzbd I had a category called "movie" with the Groups / Indexer tags set to:

Code: Select all

Movies*
It's been set like that for at least a year at this point.

So I tried to be a bit more specific and set my Groups / Indexer tags to:

Code: Select all

movies.brrip, movies.divx/xvid, movies.dvd, movies.hd (image), movies.hd (x264), movies.other, movies.svcd/vcd, movies.wmv-hd
However it still categorizes "XXX: Divx/Xvid" and "XXX: DVD" as a movie. I was fine with how it behaved in 0.6.15, anything sent from nzbxxx through sabconnect++ just got categorized as "default".

To be honest I didn't even think sabconnect++ could pass nzbxxx categories to sabznb.

It would be really sweat if I could actually create a pr0n category for stuff dowloaded through sabconnect from nzbxxx, but I'm also OK with just having everything downloaded from there set to "Default".

The issue doesn't seem to be with sabconnect++, because even with the latest edition things work "how they use to" with sabnzbd 0.6.15

Any ideas? I'm glad I caught it before someone looked in my movies folder :)

The reason is that nzbmatrix and nzbxxx use the same numbers for their categories.
Both sites have the same clumsy API that delivers numbers instead of texts for categories.
SABnzbd needs to do the conversion, which is now the same for both sites.
The next release will prefix each category from nzbxxx with 'XXX:".

Ahhh... Gotcha.

Thanks for the reply... so in short: stay put on 0.6.15 and wait until the next 0.7.x
